Five Effective Indoor Exercises

Now that Autumn is here, it's too rainy for running. The mornings are dark, the nights are closing in and I don't enjoy running in the rain. Here are five winter exercise trends that can be done indoors. Or, five summer fitness options for when you can't go out in the blistering sun.



TABATA TRAINING
Tabata training was used by Japanís Olympic speed skating team and named after inventor Izumi Tabata. Using intervals of push-ups, squats, sprints and jumps, it can be done in four minutes, but some gyms offer longer classes.



SLEEK TECHNIQUE
Founded by ballet dancers Victoria Marr and Flik Swan, Sleek Technique uses traditional ballet techniques to help tone and strengthen your body. Classes are done via their live online classes or downloaded video workouts. You can join as a principal member (£48 per month/£495 annually) or pay-as-you-go, with classes starting at £7 for 30 minutes.


UNDERWATER CYCLING
Put a spin class in a swimming pool and you have aquAllure, which originated in New York. Itís just arrived in London and is likely to roll out to other cities next year. The bikes increase resistance with pedalling speed, making for an impressive cardio workout and reduced impact on joints and muscles.



TRAMPOLINING
Balance, flexibility and co-ordination, plus strengthened leg muscles, are the benefits of trampolining. Itís also low impact. Itís best to attend a formal class, generally undertaken as a course (it can take a while to master), with each class lasting up to 1.5 hours. See Trampolining Online for a trampoline club in your area. Prices vary.


HULA HOOPING
The rhythmic motion of hula hooping helps tone the back, abdomen, arms and legs. In formal classes, you will be led through a series of movements, often with weighted hoops, for up to one hour. Harder and more rewarding than it looks. Check out hooping.org for more information and instructional videos.



I have unfortunately been caught in the rain twice this week during my daily run, and ended up with even worse post-jog hair. To save your hair, and body, from dealing with the elements, try the above exercises and enjoy a weather-free workout, which will certainly get your heart pumping.
