The Best New Workouts and Gym Classes-2

Bikram Yoga (Hot Yoga)

Where we tried it: Bikram Yoga NYC
Sweat: 10
Fun: 4
Difficulty: 6

Word to the wise: Wear as little and as lightweight clothing as possible. Besides the sweat factor (and the 100+ degree temperature), hot yoga has similar postures and movements to your standard yoga class. Why go hot? Your muscles will be warmer and thus, more flexible. Plus, you’ll scorch a lot of calories. If you’re a yoga enthusiast looking for a challenge or someone who thinks “yoga isn’t a real workout,” we recommend you try this class. While you can take Bikram Yoga without previous yoga experience (we did), it’s a good idea to start with a more basic (cooler) class (Find the best yoga style for you here). You learn to walk before you sprint, right? Our tip: Drink plenty of water well in advance. Don’t wait until an hour before the class starts to down a liter. You’ll have to leave to use the restroom, which we learned is a big no-no.
