The sun, according to W+G's resident astrologist Jennifer Racioppi, is now "zooming through Aries" (AKA "the sign of action") and so you should be harnessing that energy into your exercise regimen. "Now’s the time to move your body and reawaken from the winter months," Racioppi explained in this week's Cosmic Health column. "Fast-paced, upbeat, sweaty workouts are not only seasonally appropriate but also astrologically on-point. They help you to move beyond the Mercury retrograde fog and step into the clarity that awaits you on the other side of this week."
So, you know what that means. Think: cardio dance classes, sprints on the treadmill, and high intensity interval training, all ideally set to the pace of Ariana Grande's "Thank U Next" album (...or whatever it is that gets you personally pumped up). For a little inspo, care of the zodiac, here are 6 workouts worth trying out now that all is right in the universe.
Megan Roup's dance cardio
Roup posts a ton of her choreography to Instagram, so scroll through her feed and you're pretty much guaranteed to find a routine (and a soundtrack) that you'll love.
Amanda Kloots' jump rope routines
Pilates ball between your legs or not, jumping rope is no joke. You can find Kloots' workouts on-demand via the Obé app.
Akin Akman's ab workout
Akin Akman's boot camps are touted as some of the hardest in New York City (seriously—I've been told they're harder than college football camp), but if you can't make it to class you can try his ride-or-die abs routine: 400 crunches a day, every single day.
LEKFit's trampoline workouts
Trampoline workouts add a plyometric element to cardio training, which means you're essentially getting a two-for-one in your workout. You can peep the full roster of LEKFit workouts (and try 'em for yourself) via the studio's on-demand service.
Gina DiNapoli's JABSbyGina
Part boxing, part dance class, Project by Equinox's new JABS class will have you dripping in sweat. You can check out some of the moves on trainer Gina DiNapoli's Instagram page, and TBH I'm tired just looking at it.
Meg Takac's strength circuits
Meg's workouts are heavily featured on the Aaptiv app, but you can steal her sweat-inducing circuit style via Instagram... including this little box jumping number, which will really get your heart-rate going.
