Top 5 NYC Fitness Trends to Get to Your Best 2015 You!

New year. New you. So you know you made a fitness resolution, time to work in that work out.

Based in New York City, LeSportsac is always on its way to the hottest (and sweatiest!) workouts. Check out five of our favorite fitness trends to bring out your best 2015 abs, along with the bag best suited to each work out.

Spartan Race

What is it: An outdoor obstacle course race spotted with hardcore physical challenges just in case you are not challenged enough Why we love it:  Being pushed to the max and still going is the ultimate self-esteem booster. You feel like a warrior—a Spartan warrior—and you like it.


What to bring: A Medium Weekender. This warrior stuff isn’t pretty. Chances are your going to be COVERED in mud. You are going to need a shower immediately after. Room for a bath towel? Check.

Soul Cycle

What is it: A new take on indoor cycling with inspirational coaching, great music, and a full body workout (think hand weights and core work). You seriously pump up a jam.

Why we love it:  There a ton of locations so there is no excuse to miss a class and the music really just moves you to the most satisfying sweat fest.

What to bring:  A Voyager Backpack. Yup, you’re going to pack a water bottle in each side pocket and yes, you are going to need a towel or two to mop up that brow and those handle bars. You might even get crazy and buy your own shoes, so that main compartment? Perfect.

Jump Life

What is it:  Rebounding on a trampoline to do either dance based, Pilates and yoga, or weight centered workouts.

Why we love it: All the fun of jumping on a trampoline in your parents’ backyard is actually a work out? Count us in. The variety of classes offered has something for everyone.


What to bring: The Gym Duffle. The shoe pouch is perfect for transporting your shoes—sneakers are encouraged to get the most out of this cardio workout.  Though we are not sure how this bag is going to contain the fun you are going to have!

Physique 57

What is it: A stepped version of traditional barre ballet methods that adds a blend of cardio, strength training, and stretching to hit all of those small muscles along with the large ones that will be sore the next day.

Why we love it: It is a total body workout that burns those calories away and gives you an amazing stretch after wearing out each muscle group.

What to bring: The Gym Tote.  You are going to need the snap off clear zip pouch for that have-to-have shower right after. Try to hit the sauna beforehand to relax those poor sore muscles.

Afro-Brazilian Samba at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

What is it:  A warm-up that incorporates traditional elements of yoga, Pilates, and ballet leading up to a sweat inducing Brazilian dance class that incorporates the region’s Afro-Brazilian roots and the rhythms of Brazilian Samba.

Why we love it: Did we mention the live drumming?

What to bring: The Basic Backpack. This barefoot class asks for leggings or yoga pants and the rhythm of your heart.

Happy workout all. Cheers to reaching your fitness goals in 2015!
