7 ways to sex-up your workout
Who said getting fit had to involve sweating it out on a treadmill? Check out these 7 sexy workouts which will boost your sex appeal as well as improve your fitness.
Pole dancing has gained huge popularity with gym goers in recent years due to its great fitness benefits. Pole dancing is a fun, sexy but tough workout which combines elements of dancing and acrobatics. As this workout requires strong muscles in order to swing round on the pole and hang upside down, it is an ideal exercise for toning your body. It is also a good confidence and libido-boosting exercise.
You might think that hula hoops are just for kids, but hula hooping is rapidly making a comeback as a fun and effective fitness activity for adults. Hula hooping with a weighted hoop can burn off as many as 100 calories for every 10 minutes and can help tone the waist for sexy, sculpted abs. The exercise also involves a sensual circling of the hips which can help strengthen pelvic muscles and improve your sex life.
Strip aerobics is a great exercise class for helping you shed your inhibitions as well as burning off excess pounds. Combining a cardio workout with stripper-like moves, this sexy workout can help you learn some moves to use in the bedroom as well as improving your body. Strip aerobics classes are available in various gyms, but for those of you not brave enough to strut your stuff in public, check out Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease DVD which promises to help you ‘strip your way to fitness’.
High heel workout
If running shoes just aren’t for you, why not slip into your favourite pair of heels for your next workout? While stilettos are normally a no-no where exercise is concerned, an innovative new fitness class is all about getting active in heels. The high heel workout endeavours to get you moving comfortably in heels as well toning the legs and core. As well as boosting your confidence, wearing heels can also strengthen pelvic muscles to give your sex life a boost.
Fancy getting dressed up, learning some sexy moves and burning off around 300 calories per half hour? Then salsa dancing could be for you. This dance style offers a sexy yet classy, fast-paced workout which can help build stamina and increase overall fitness. Furthermore, if your love life is stuck in a rut, this is a class that can be done with your partner to help inject some excitement into your relationship.
With props such as fans, feather boas and high heels featuring in burlesque dancing, this provocative form of dance may be the ultimate sexy workout. Taking a burlesque class is a fun and flirty way to burn off the calories and tone up your legs, bum and core muscles. The classes also focus on building up confidence and feeling comfortable in your skin – although, contrary to what you may think, stripping is not required when taking a class!
If you fancy trying a sexy workout but want something more subtle than pole dancing or burlesque, why not give belly dancing a go? Complete with seductive moves and outfits, belly dancing is all about celebrating curves and the feminine shape and will encourage you to love your body. Belly dancing is also a great form of aerobic exercise and can help maintain weight loss and a healthy heart as well as tightening core muscles.
