As a high intensity version of Pilates, Megaformer, is a celebrity favorite. Many A-listers credit their fit bodies to this new exercise: Kim Kardashian, Lea Michele and Bella Thorne are just a select few who have fallen in love with the method.

There are several things that can deter you from going to the gym or attending a work out class. However, virtual boxing makes working out much more convenient. With virtual boxing you can complete your work out at home or even in a hotel when you're on a business trip. The form of boxing consists of 30-minute videos per class where you can expect to burn at least 600 calories. The structure of the class includes shadow boxing alternated with high-intensity intervals and knock-out rounds.
Mixed Format Classes
These work out classes include a mixture of various forms of exercise combined into one single class. Typically, mixed format classes include both cardio and strength training.
