The pound is the sporting trend of the year! Coming straight from the United States, this sport nicknamed “the fitness rockstar” combines fitness, cardio and a lot of music. It differs from the other activities thanks to the use of two astonishing fluorescent sticks “Ripsticks” that are snapped to the rhythm of the music. In terms of calorie expenditure, the figures speak for themselves: in just 45 minutes, more than 900 calories are burned. Oh yes, nothing more! It is not for nothing that the stars are addicted to it such as the pretty French host Karine Ferri.
The Fit Ballet
The Fit Ballet is a perfect blend of classical dance, yoga and fitness. Created by the dancer Octavie Escure, this sport help to deeply muscle while keeping an elongated line, like a ballet dancer. The advantage of Fit ballet, lies in the fact that it is suitable for all sportsmen as well as for beginners, and above all, it allows both to get in shape, gain flexibility and carve his body.

This sport is likely to be very trendy in 2018, because it mixes boxing and fitness. It combines the pleasures of boxing with the benefits of fitness but without the kicks. We learn to make beautiful choreographies following the sound of a furious music, while chaining kicks and punches without touching the opponent. This activity strengthens the muscles and makes the cardio work. Only positive points! So we come out tired of these sessions, but happy to have spent so much. And is not Laury Thilleman, former Miss France who can confirm it since this beautiful is fond of this sport. And if it’s about getting the same body as her, we say yes!
The Soulcycle is a practice born in New York, a little over two years ago, but all Manhattan has adopted very quickly. So what are the keys of its success? The concept is to pedal in a group on rather loud evening music, in a dark room lit only with candles. The use of candles would indeed connect with the music, entering a kind of “trance”. The whole body will be solicited: in addition to pedaling, it is necessary to make push-ups on the handlebar using dumbbells. In short, a complete sport or we come out well leached! This practice is out of the ordinary and this is what has attracted many stars such as Demi Lovato, Sophia Bush, or the sexy Selena Gomez.
Climbing, strengthening the whole body
Long considered as outdoor sport designed for sports experts, climbing, which consists of moving along a wall to reach its summit, can yet be practiced everywhere (in the room as in the mountains). The first steps can be slightly confusing, because you have to learn to “read” a way that is to find the path that will allow you to climb to the top of the wall that stands in front of you. The ideal starting point is to start by learning the basics of the discipline from teachers in specialized rooms, which are experiencing significant development in Europa and America.
In addition to making the whole body work by toning the muscles of the arms, legs, abs and backs, it is very demanding for the mind, learning to keep it calm and manage stress.
The rebounding: target the thighs and gluts
Also designed as the art of jumping on a mini trampoline. At first sight, the idea may seem surprising, even childish, but this activity, very intense, is an effective way to strengthen thighs and buttocks, improve balance and coordination and work the cardiovascular system.
The courses, which last between 45 and 60 minutes, consist in following a very fast pace a series of exercises on the trampoline: knee climb, race on the spot, scissors, foot bounces … in total, a 45 minutes session burns nearly 700 calories on average.
