Friday Five: 5 Favorite Indoor Workouts

Happy Friday everyone! I am beyond excited this week is almost over. I have a lot going on, work is incredibly busy, so I am in desperate need of some fun and relaxation. And what a perfect time since the Super Bowl is this coming weekend. Anyways today I am linking up with Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC,  Mar from Mar On The Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What? Today's topic: 5 favorite indoor workouts.





SPIN CLASS: I love this class! For me it has been the best class to cross train during my half marathon training. Not only is it easy on my knees but it does not hurt my feet. I break a great sweat and come out feeling great. Highly recommend everyone to at least try it once. I got hooked after one class!


ZUMBA: If you love to dance then this is the class for you! I was pretty hesitant in trying this class out. Mostly because I was scared of looking like an idiot by not knowing any of the moves. Honestly I still don't know all the moves but the class I go to is high energy and no one judges you if you don't know the moves. There are times I just jump up and down until I catch up. haha!


INSANITY: Insanity is well...INSANE!! It is a high intensity 60 day workout program. I really enjoy it because it works muscles I didn't know I used! I've done the whole cycle twice and have seen great results both times. Now I just pick any workout and hop to it. Best part about Insanity is that no extra equipment is needed and you get to do it in the comfort of your own home.


BOSU BALL: I barely started using the bosu ball this past year but now I look for it every time I am at the gym. I have been able to get some really good workouts with it. My favorite are squats and planks. I am hoping to buy one this year to have in the house instead of heading to the gym to use it. 


KETTLE BELLS: I really like a good kettle bell workout when the barbells are all in use. Most people don't really know you can really get a full workout with them. Right now since the gym is still pretty packed from new year's resolutions, I just go to these because it is easier than waiting for free weights and barbells. I still get a great workout and I can use whatever kettle bell I want.

  2. I used to teach a spin class and I loved it. I am so uncoordinated when it comes to dance moves. I have tried zumba but can't say I'll be running back to that one:)

  4. The bosu ball is an amazing workout tool. I also just picked up a balance disc that I do ankle mobility and core work on. Holy smokes is it ever awesome. I've always wanted to try kettle bells. I may do that in my off season. Great set of indoor workouts!

    1. I can't say that I know what a balance disc is but if it helps with ankle mobility I think I should read more about it.

  5. Daisy, I love my BOSU trainer; I have one at home and it's great for those exercises you've mentioned. I took a spinning class last night for the first time in a LONG time and I can't believe I haven't returned soon; I had a blast! I'm going to make it a regular thing now. Thanks so much for sharing these ideas; hope you have a great weekend!

  10. I've actually never tried the Bosu, I probably should. I've seen others do it before, it probably really helps with balance and the core!

    1. It really does help with balance. I love doing squats on it because not only does it workout my legs, but my core get a little workout with making sure I can balance myself.
