No matter how old you are, you can amp up your workout routine this year. There are a number of programs designed to keep you interested and motivated for more than just a few days or even a week. You donโ€™t just have to hit the treadmill or the exercise bike to burn some calories. Try a fun and challenging change of pace to keep your mind and body in shape.

One of the most popular fitness trends this season is CrossFit. If youโ€™ve never heard of this workout, think of it as a series of high intensity moves designed to keep you on your toes and in tip-top shape. The CrossFit program is certainly challenging, but youโ€™ll be working so many different parts of your body at such a quick pace, itโ€™s easy to overlook how hard youโ€™re actually working. From lunges to squats to lifts, youโ€™ll tone up and firm up thanks to this highly motivating workout program.

Another fitness option thatโ€™s gaining new life this year is Zumba. Perhaps youโ€™ve already checked out a class filled with Latin beats and swivel hips, but many are taking on new meaning and adding new calorie-burning elements. Some workout instructors are even offering Zumba cruises to keep people in shape even when out of their normal routine. Zumba classes are a great way to spice up your normal workout schedule and keep you moving and sweating throughout the month.

Another non-conventional workout method picking up steam in 2013 is Barre. This program uses the movements and exercises of ballerinas and re-purposes them for a new audience. Want a flatter stomach and toned thighs? Check out some at-home Barre workouts or head to a local class. You will gain more control and flexibility while challenging your body to work smaller muscle groups to get fit.

Itโ€™s not just a matter of sticking to the same old routine to stay in shape this year. Mix up your movements and your workout schedule to keep motivated. By trying a new class, you could reignite your fire or find a new passion. Challenge yourself to try something new this week. It could change your fitness life for the better.
