Fun, Feel-Good Workouts Worth Trying

To borrow from a beloved spin instructor, Cody Rigsby, “Invest in yourself like you’re a good stock portfolio—buy, buy, buy!” So we crowdsourced some of the best, most-talked-about streaming and IRL workouts with maximum ROI. Because let’s be real, the most valuable asset you have is you.

SWEAT THEORY

The Vibe: Reiki, tarot, hot yoga—you name it, Sweatheory (likely) has it. And with the option of a monthly membership, you could, if you wanted, spend an entire day experiencing all this one-stop wellness shop has to offer. Should you have only an hour or two, might we suggest a chakra meditation or a deep stretch followed by infrared with a vitamin drip finisher?

The Fit and Props: A sweat-wicking set plus a few botanical-infused beauty essentials you can throw in your tote for a postsauna pick-me-up.

The Locations: LA and Kansas City.

The instructors focus on form, ensuring you’ve got every move dialed.

The Fit and Props: Free weights, resistance bands, and—extra credit—a sleek health-tracker for digging deeper with metrics.

FLUIDFORM PILATES

The Vibe: Kirsten King, the Pilates queen of Australia, has become a favorite among the influencer set for her go-at-your-own-pace low-resistance toning classes, including one particularly robust pre- and postnatal program. And we can attest: Those quickie abs and arms series are just right for squeezing in between meetings.

The Fit and Props: No Reformer, no problem—step up any at-home mat class with a balance ball and some grippy socks.

The Locations: Pop into any one of her three studios (Australia only) or subscribe and stream from anywhere with Wi-Fi.

BÜNDA

The Vibe: Bünda was essentially formulated with one zone in mind—the glutes. The idea being that if you have a solid foundation, the rest (the lower back, core, and knees) can benefit from all the stabilizing support. First comes the StairMaster, and next, the weights. The best part is that the fifty minutes of high-energy booty-torching exercises don’t leave much room for monotony.

The Fit and Props: A performance-driven set, sneakers, and a mini massager for next-day soreness.

The Locations: West Hollywood and Santa Monica.

THE HEATED ROOM

The Vibe: Think of the Heated Room as a cross between a vinyasa-style flow and a steamy sauna session. Meaning you will emerge feeling loose and limber and as if you’ve sweat out every last toxic substance in your body (that one-hundred-degree heat is as cathartic as it is unforgiving). Also clutch: The sleek studio offers a range of hybrid sculpt classes, should you want to switch it up.

The Fit and Props: A temperature-controlled set and skin-revitalizing towelettes for after.

The Locations: West Hollywood.

THE PILATES CLASS

The Vibe: The first thing that might surprise you about the Pilates Class founder Jacqui Kingswell is that she’s an incredible dancer (and may or may not have appeared in a Beyoncé video). The second: The Sydney-based dancer credits the slow, mindful movements of Pilates for giving her a deeper mind-body connection. We love that her resistance-building, core-activating classes—rated on a scale of “chill” to “intense”—always meet you right where you’re at.

The Fit and Props: Grab a mat and an all-way-stretch bodysuit, then level up with one-pound ankle weights if you want to make it extra spicy.

The Locations: Stream from an extensive library of on-demand classes that drop weekly.
