Don’t we all remember the days with Jane Fonda and Claudia Schiffer made VHS tapes on the most exciting looking workouts – aerobics? Dolled up in snazzy leggings and tank tops, it was {and perhaps still is} considered one of the best forms of workout as it combines rhythmic movements and strength training routines that will improve your flexibility, muscular strength, and cardio-vascular fitness. Throw in some pumping music to make it a lively session, and really, it’s a dance party that gets you in shape. So if you’re jaded when it comes to gyms and runs, step it up with these aerobic classes in town. Breathe in, breathe out and jump right in!
