Die konsep van nuwejaarsgeskiktheidsvoornemens is beslis nie nuut nie. Die meeste tydskrifte vir gesondheid en fiksheid sal u hierdie jaar bombardeer met dieetneigings, oefenroetines en unieke kardio -oefensessies (Zumba, paaldans, lug -sy -aerobics). Net soos hulle, kan ons óf daarteen veg, óf daarmee saamgaan. Ons het laasgenoemde gekies; omdat ons wil sien dat u die doelwitte net soveel bereik as u.

As u in New York is, het u nou 'n nuwe manier om die spiere en buikspiere te versterk. Cyc, 'n innoverende fiksheidskonsep wat kardio- en kragoefening op 'n fiets kombineer, het hierdie maand sy deure geopen. Die nuutste adres van Cyc is reeds gevestig in Austin, TX en Madison, WI (van alle plekke), op Astor Place 4 in DavidBartonGym.

Die ateljee bied slaapplek vir meer as 50 fietse in 'n ruimte wat ontwerp is deur Glen Coben, 'n bekende argitek wat veral bekend is vir sy werk in Niketown -winkels landwyd. Ruiters het ook die voordeel dat hulle toegang kan kry tot DavidBartonGym se fasiliteite voor en na die klasse, sowel as die spesiale lede se tariewe vir die gimnasium.

Maar hier is die unieke ding van hierdie oefensessie: dit kombineer 'n sosiale platform op die internet en vir elke myl wat gery word, sal Cyc 'n deel van hul winste aan hul vooraf geselekteerde liefdadigheidsvennote skenk. Die Cyc-metode is ontwerp deur Keoni Hudoba, 'n atleet wat deur Armour geborg word, en is 'n ritmegebaseerde rit van 45 minute wat die hele liggaam uitwerk.

As u nie verveeld raak en dink dat dit net nog 'n fietsryklas is nie, sorg die instrukteurs dat elke rit anders is en tegnieke opgeneem word in sektore wat deur meer as 20 verskillende sportsoorte gemotiveer is.

Wat is 'n oefensessie sonder 'n goeie snitlys? Cyc se span sal 'n paar van die beste mengsels vir die klas skep, in samewerking met groot en indie platemaatskappye. U is moontlik selfs die eerste om Madonna se nuutste dansslag of Britney Spears se mees onlangse motiverende lirieke (Lyk u warm in 'n bikini?/Dit is beter om te werk, [meisie]) .

Aangesien ons in 'n nuwe era leef om alle dinge te deel, word Cyc Social op fietse geïnstalleer om ruiters binne en buite die ateljee te verbind. Die sosiale platform sal gaste in staat stel om kennisgewings te ontvang wanneer vriende en familie vir 'n klas registreer of kyk waar mense in hul netwerk sit, sodat hulle 'n fiets kan bespreek. Klasse kos tans tussen $ 20 en $ 25 per sessie en korporatiewe en studentetariewe word aangebied.

Dink net daaraan dat u rit van vyf myl moontlik die jeug met gestremdhede kan help by die Challenged Athletes Foundation. Is dit nie genoeg rede nie? Maak nie saak dat jou bene baie mooi sal lyk as jy dit doen nie.


Waarom 'n fiksheidsmaatjie die beste ding ooit is

Oefening + vriende = 'n kragtige kombinasie. Ontdek hoekom en mdashplus waar u die perfekte pasmaat kan vind.

As u slegs twee dinge kon doen om u gesondheid te verbeter, stel ons voor dat u oefen en kwaliteit tyd saam met vriende deurbring. Eersgenoemde is vanselfsprekend, maar laasgenoemde kan selfs belangriker wees as wat u dink: eensaamheid is net so skadelik vir u welstand as om 15 sigarette per dag te rook, volgens 'n studie in Perspektiewe op die sielkundige wetenskap.

Daarom sê ons, waarom nie die twee kombineer nie: neem 'n oefenmaat en sweet saam. Behalwe dat u twee voëls in een klap doodmaak, pluk u ook heelwat voordele. Hier, die top agt.

1. U geniet u oefensessie meer.

In 'n studie van 117 volwassenes aan die Universiteit van Suid-Kalifornië, het diegene wat saam met vriende (of 'n eggenoot of medewerker) gewerk het, gesê dat hulle die oefening meer geniet as diegene wat 'n sweet solo gehad het. Maak sin: jy hou daarvan om saam met jou vriende te kuier, jy hou (meestal) van oefen-kombineer die twee en jy verdubbel jou plesier.

2. Dit is minder geneig om beseer te word.

Die gimnasiumspieël kan jou net soveel vertel. As u 'n oefenmaat het, kan sy u vinnige vormkontroles gee en u vertel wanneer u rug sak tydens u plank of as u te veel vorentoe leun terwyl u hurk. En dit kan u later baie pyn bespaar. (Slaan seker dat u hierdie tien bewegings oorslaan, wat sê dat u nooit weer moet doen nie.)

3. Jy voel minder gestres.

Mense wat 30 minute lank saam met 'n vriend op 'n stilstaande fiets geoefen het, het gesê hulle voel rustiger na die oefensessie as diegene wat alleen gery het, volgens 'n studie in die International Journal of Stress Management. Duos hoef nie noodwendig tydens die oefensessie te gesels om die stresopwekkende effekte te ervaar nie, dus neem 'n oefenmaat saam na die klas, selfs as u weet dat u uself te hard sal druk om 'n woord te sê.

4. Jy sal jouself harder druk.

Is u bekommerd dat u oefenmaat fitter is as u? Goed. Mense wat oefen saam met iemand wat hulle gedink het beter as hulle was, het tot 200 persent harder en langer as ander gewerk, sê 'n studie aan die Kansas State University. Dit is omdat u natuurlik mededingend is, en as u saam met 'n goeie vriend is, vind u dit makliker om uself werklik aan te moedig om by te bly. (Verwant: Hoe oefenvriende selfvertroue oorwin het om hul eerste halfmarathon te hardloop)

5. Jy sal ophou om op te hou.

As u net in die oggend of na die werk na die gimnasium sleep, is dit maklik om uself daarvan af te spreek, dus as u weet dat u 'n oefenmaat daar sal ontmoet. Dieselfde geld vir ontspan tydens oefening: u wil nie stop vir soveel breekwater (lees: Instagram en teks) as u 'n vriend daar kry om u te bel nie.

6. U bereik u doelwitte vinniger.

Dit gaan saam met die twee vorige punte: as u konsekwent is en u harder inspan, sal u prestasie vinniger verbeter as wanneer u slegs sporadies na die gimnasium gaan en verslap wanneer u dit regkry.

7. Jy sal meer seks hê.

Hierdie een kan slegs geld as u oefenmaat ook u seksmaat is. Die fisiese simptome wat u ervaar nadat u 'n uitgespoelde vel gewerk het, 'n vinniger hartklop, adrenalienstorm, boots eintlik die gevolge van opwekking na. Dit kan help om te verduidelik waarom studies toon dat mans en vroue meer aangetrokke voel na mekaar nadat hulle saam adrenalien gepomp het, soos oefen. (Psst. Hier en neem hoeveel kalorieë in eintlik brand tydens seks.)

8. Jy sal uit jou gat kom.

As u alleen sweet, is dit te maklik om terug te val op dieselfde ou oefeninge. Maar dit is 'n maklike manier om in 'n fiksheidsplatform te val. 'N Vriend het dalk voorstelle om jou roetine aan te pas, waaraan jy nie alleen sou dink nie, en wat dinge interessant en uitdagend vir jou spiere en jou gedagtes sal hou.

Waar om 'n oefenmaat te vind

Geïnspireer om te sweet as 'n duo-of-groep? Raadpleeg advies en verbindings by een van hierdie aanlyn- of IRL -bronne.

1. Sluit aan by 'n Zogsports League

Met die fokus op jong professionele persone, is hierdie organisasie 'n uitstekende manier om aan te meld by intramurale spanne, klasse, klinieke en sosiale geleenthede. 'N Deel van die opbrengs gaan aan liefdadigheid, wat die moeite werd is om 'n oefenmaat te ontmoet.

2. Word geïnspireer op Meetup.com

As die wêreld se grootste netwerk vir groepe met spesiale belangstellings, is dit moeilik om nie geïnspireer te word deur die prettige dinge waarvoor mense op hierdie webwerf aanmeld nie. U kan alles vind, van 'n plaaslike stapgroep vol oefensessies tot byeenkomste om met u troeteldiere te oefen.

3. Gaan vir 'n Groupon -ooreenkoms

Danksy die sterk afslagpryse vir fiksheidsverwante klasse, is dit makliker as ooit om aan te meld vir enigiets, van joga-klasse tot rotsklimlesse op LivingSocial of Groupon. Die dopamien -haastigheid om iets nuuts te probeer (soos trapeze, miskien ?!) kan 'n band tussen mense skep, so maak 'n gesprek met iemand anders in u klas. hy of sy kan die oefenmaat wees waarna u op soek was!

4. Vra u afrigter/afrigter

Praat met 'n professionele persoon in u gimnasium om te sien of hy of sy weet van iemand wat belangstel om 'n oefenmaat te vind. Die afrigter sal u vaardighede en belangstellings ken-en dit maak nooit skade om deur 'n gemeenskaplike kennis te gaan nie.

5. Reik uit na vriende

Dit lyk voor die hand liggend, maar oefen is eintlik 'n goeie manier om tyd deur te bring met vriende met wie u kontak verloor het of maande sonder om te sien. In plaas daarvan om u besige lewens in die pad te laat staan, kan u 'n maandelikse of weeklikse klas saam neem om fiks te bly terwyl u inhaal.

6. Vra rond by die werk

Het u 'n kollega wat lyk asof sy net so geïnteresseerd is in 'n gesonde lewe as u? Praat met haar daaroor! U vind moontlik dat u fiksheidsdoelwitte gemeen het, en omdat u mekaar elke dag sien en soortgelyke skedules het, is dit maklik om tyd te beplan om saam te oefen as oefenvriende.

Het u 'n kollega wat lyk asof sy net so geïnteresseerd is in 'n gesonde lewe as u? Praat met haar daaroor! U vind moontlik dat u fiksheidsdoelwitte gemeen het, en omdat u mekaar elke dag sien en soortgelyke skedules het, is dit maklik om tyd te beplan om saam te oefen as oefenvriende.


Waarom 'n fiksheidsmaatjie die beste ding ooit is

Oefening + vriende = 'n kragtige kombinasie. Ontdek hoekom en mdashplus waar u die perfekte pasmaat kan vind.

As u slegs twee dinge kon doen om u gesondheid te verbeter, stel ons voor dat u oefen en kwaliteit tyd saam met vriende deurbring. Eersgenoemde is vanselfsprekend, maar laasgenoemde kan selfs belangriker wees as wat u dink: eensaamheid is net so skadelik vir u welstand as om 15 sigarette per dag te rook, volgens 'n studie in Perspektiewe op die sielkundige wetenskap.

Daarom sê ons, waarom nie die twee kombineer nie: neem 'n oefenmaat en sweet saam. Behalwe dat u twee voëls in een klap doodmaak, pluk u ook heelwat voordele. Hier, die top agt.

1. U geniet u oefensessie meer.

In 'n studie van 117 volwassenes aan die Universiteit van Suid-Kalifornië, het diegene wat saam met vriende (of 'n eggenoot of medewerker) gewerk het, gesê dat hulle die oefening meer geniet as diegene wat 'n sweet solo gehad het. Maak sin: jy hou daarvan om saam met jou vriende te kuier, jy hou (meestal) van oefen-kombineer die twee en jy verdubbel jou plesier.

2. Dit is minder geneig om beseer te word.

Die gimnasiumspieël kan jou net soveel vertel. As u 'n oefenmaat het, kan sy u vinnige vormkontroles gee en u vertel wanneer u rug sak tydens u plank of as u te veel vorentoe leun terwyl u hurk. En dit kan u later baie pyn bespaar. (Slaan seker dat u hierdie tien bewegings oorslaan, wat sê dat u nooit weer moet doen nie.)

3. Jy voel minder gestres.

Mense wat 30 minute lank saam met 'n vriend op 'n stilstaande fiets geoefen het, het gesê hulle voel rustiger na die oefensessie as diegene wat alleen gery het, volgens 'n studie in die International Journal of Stress Management. Duos hoef nie noodwendig tydens die oefensessie te gesels om die stresopwekkende effekte te ervaar nie, so neem 'n oefenmaat saam na die klas, selfs as u weet dat u uself te hard sal druk om 'n woord te sê.

4. Jy sal jouself harder druk.

Is u bekommerd dat u oefenmaat fitter is as u? Goed. Mense wat oefen saam met iemand wat hulle gedink het beter as hulle was, het tot 200 persent harder en langer as ander gewerk, sê 'n studie aan die Kansas State University. Dit is moontlik omdat u natuurlik mededingend is-as u saam met 'n geskikte vriend is, vind u dit makliker om uself werklik te probeer aanhou. (Verwant: Hoe oefenvriende selfvertroue oorkom het om hul eerste halfmarathon te hardloop)

5. Jy sal ophou om op te hou.

As u net in die oggend of na die werk na die gimnasium sleep, is dit maklik om uself daarvan af te spreek, dus as u weet dat u 'n oefenmaat daar sal ontmoet. Dieselfde geld vir ontspanning tydens oefening: u sal nie stop vir soveel breekwater (lees: Instagram en teks) as u 'n vriend daar het om u te bel nie.

6. U bereik u doelwitte vinniger.

Dit gaan saam met die twee vorige punte: as u konsekwent is en u harder inspan, sal u prestasie vinniger verbeter as wanneer u slegs sporadies na die gimnasium gaan en as u slaag as u dit regkry.

7. Jy sal meer seks hê.

Hierdie een kan slegs geld as u oefenmaat ook u seksmaat is. Die fisiese simptome wat u ondervind nadat u 'n uitgespoelde vel gewerk het, 'n vinniger hartklop, adrenalienstorm, boots eintlik die gevolge van opwekking na. Dit kan verduidelik waarom studies toon dat mans en vroue meer aangetrokke voel na mekaar nadat hulle saam met adrenalien gepomp het, soos oefen. (Psst. Hier en neem hoeveel kalorieë in eintlik brand tydens seks.)

8. Jy sal uit jou gat kom.

As u alleen sweet, is dit te maklik om terug te val op dieselfde ou oefeninge. Maar dit is 'n maklike manier om in 'n fiksheidsplatform te val. 'N Vriend het dalk voorstelle om jou roetine aan te pas, waaraan jy nie alleen sou dink nie, en wat dinge interessant en uitdagend vir jou spiere en jou gedagtes sal hou.

Waar om 'n oefenmaat te vind

Geïnspireer om te sweet as 'n duo-of-groep? Raadpleeg advies en verbindings by een van hierdie aanlyn- of IRL -bronne.

1. Sluit aan by 'n Zogsports League

Met die fokus op jong professionele persone, is hierdie organisasie 'n uitstekende manier om aan te meld by intramurale spanne, klasse, klinieke en sosiale geleenthede. 'N Deel van die opbrengs gaan aan liefdadigheid, wat die moeite werd is om 'n oefenmaat te ontmoet.

2. Word geïnspireer op Meetup.com

As the world&aposs largest network for special-interest groups, it&aposs tough not to be inspired by the fun things people are signing up for on this site. You can find anything from a local hiking group filled with workout buddies to meet-ups for exercising with your pets.

3. Go for a Groupon Deal

Thanks to the deeply discounted prices for fitness-related classes, it&aposs easier than ever to sign up for anything from yoga classes to rock-climbing lessons on LivingSocial or Groupon. The dopamine rush from trying something new (like trapeze, perhaps?!) can create a bond between people, so strike up a convo with someone else in your class. he or she could be the workout buddy you&aposve been searching for!

4. Ask Your Trainer/Coach

Talk to a professional at your gym to see if he or she knows of anyone who is interested in finding a workout partner. The trainer will know both of your skills and interests-and it never hurts to go through a mutual acquaintance.

5. Reach Out to Friends

This may seem obvious, but working out is actually a great way to spend time with friends who you&aposve lost touch with or go months without seeing. Instead of letting your busy lives get in the way of bonding time, you can take a monthly or weekly class together to stay fit-while you catch up.

6. Ask Around at Work

Have a coworker who seems like she&aposs just as interested in healthy living as you are? Talk to her about it! You may find that you have fitness goals in common, and because you see each other every day and have similar schedules, it will be easy to plan time to exercise together as workout buddies.


Why Having a Fitness Buddy Is the Best Thing Ever

Exercise + friends = a powerful combo. Find out why&mdashplus where to find your perfect match.

If you could only do two things to improve your health, we&aposd suggest exercising and spending quality time with friends. The former is self-explanatory, but the latter may be even more important than you&aposd think: Loneliness is as harmful to your well-being as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, according to a study in Perspectives on Psychological Science.

So we say, why not combine the two: grab a workout buddy and sweat together. Besides killing two birds with one stone, you&aposll be reaping a whole host of benefits. Here, the top eight.

1. You'll enjoy your workout more.

In a study of 117 adults out of the University of Southern California, those who worked out with friends (or a spouse or co-worker) said they enjoyed the exercise more than those who got sweaty solo. Makes sense: you like hanging out with your friends, you (mostly) like exercising-combine the two and you double your fun.

2. You'll be less likely to get injured.

The gym mirror can only tell you so much. When you have a workout buddy, she&aposll be able to give you quick form checks and tell you when your back is sagging during your plank or if you&aposre leaning forward too much while squatting. And that can save you lots of pain later on. (And be sure to skip these 10 moves trainers say you should never do again.)

3. You'll feel less stressed.

People who exercised on a stationary bicycle for 30 minutes with a friend said they felt calmer after the workout than those who cycled alone, according to a study in the International Journal of Stress Management. Duos didn&apost necessarily have to chat during the workout to feel the stress-busting effects, so bring a workout buddy along to spin class, even if you know you&aposll be pushing yourself too hard to utter a word.

4. You'll push yourself harder.

Worried that your exercise buddy is fitter than you? Goed. People who exercised with someone they thought was better than them worked out up to 200 percent harder and longer than others, says a study performed at Kansas State University. That&aposs because you&aposre naturally competitive-when you&aposre with a fit friend, you find it easier to really push yourself to keep up. (Related: How Workout Buddies Overcame Self-Doubt to Run Their First Half-Marathon)

5. You'll quit quitting.

When you&aposre just dragging yourself to the gym in the morning or after work, it&aposs easy to talk yourself out of it-less so when you know you&aposll be meeting a workout buddy there. The same is true for slacking off during exercise: You&aposre not going to stop for so many "water" (read: Instagram and text) breaks when you&aposve got a friend there to call you out.

6. You'll meet your goals faster.

This goes along with the two previous points: when you&aposre being consistent and pushing yourself harder, your performance will improve faster than when you&aposre only attending the gym sporadically and slacking off when you do manage to get there.

7. You'll have more sex.

This one&aposs only true if your workout partner is also your sexual partner. The physical symptoms you experience after working out-flushed skin, faster heart rate, adrenaline rush-actually mimic the effects of arousal. That might help explain why studies show that men and women feel more attracted to each other after doing an adrenaline-pumping activity together, like exercising. (Psst. here&aposs how many calories you eintlik burn during sex.)

8. You'll break out of your rut.

When you sweat solo, it&aposs all too easy to fall back on the same old exercises. But that&aposs an easy way to fall into a fitness plateau. A friend might have suggestions for switching up your routine that you wouldn&apost think of alone, and that will keep things interesting and challenging for your muscles and your mind.

5. You'll quit quitting.

When you&aposre just dragging yourself to the gym in the morning or after work, it&aposs easy to talk yourself out of it-less so when you know you&aposll be meeting a workout buddy there. The same is true for slacking off during exercise: You&aposre not going to stop for so many "water" (read: Instagram and text) breaks when you&aposve got a friend there to call you out.

6. You'll meet your goals faster.

This goes along with the two previous points: when you&aposre being consistent and pushing yourself harder, your performance will improve faster than when you&aposre only attending the gym sporadically and slacking off when you do manage to get there.

7. You'll have more sex.

This one&aposs only true if your workout partner is also your sexual partner. The physical symptoms you experience after working out-flushed skin, faster heart rate, adrenaline rush-actually mimic the effects of arousal. That might help explain why studies show that men and women feel more attracted to each other after doing an adrenaline-pumping activity together, like exercising. (Psst. here&aposs how many calories you eintlik burn during sex.)

8. You'll break out of your rut.

When you sweat solo, it&aposs all too easy to fall back on the same old exercises. But that&aposs an easy way to fall into a fitness plateau. A friend might have suggestions for switching up your routine that you wouldn&apost think of alone, and that will keep things interesting and challenging for your muscles and your mind.

Where to Find a Workout Buddy

Inspired to sweat as a duo-or group? Seek out advice and connections from one of these online or IRL sources.

1. Join a Zogsports League

With a focus on young professionals, this organization is a great way to sign up for intramural teams, classes, clinics, and social events. Part of the proceeds go to charity, making this a worthwhile way to meet a workout buddy.

2. Get Inspired On Meetup.com

As the world&aposs largest network for special-interest groups, it&aposs tough not to be inspired by the fun things people are signing up for on this site. You can find anything from a local hiking group filled with workout buddies to meet-ups for exercising with your pets.

3. Go for a Groupon Deal

Thanks to the deeply discounted prices for fitness-related classes, it&aposs easier than ever to sign up for anything from yoga classes to rock-climbing lessons on LivingSocial or Groupon. The dopamine rush from trying something new (like trapeze, perhaps?!) can create a bond between people, so strike up a convo with someone else in your class. he or she could be the workout buddy you&aposve been searching for!

4. Ask Your Trainer/Coach

Talk to a professional at your gym to see if he or she knows of anyone who is interested in finding a workout partner. The trainer will know both of your skills and interests-and it never hurts to go through a mutual acquaintance.

5. Reach Out to Friends

This may seem obvious, but working out is actually a great way to spend time with friends who you&aposve lost touch with or go months without seeing. Instead of letting your busy lives get in the way of bonding time, you can take a monthly or weekly class together to stay fit-while you catch up.

6. Ask Around at Work

Have a coworker who seems like she&aposs just as interested in healthy living as you are? Talk to her about it! You may find that you have fitness goals in common, and because you see each other every day and have similar schedules, it will be easy to plan time to exercise together as workout buddies.
