5 Local Health & Fitness Trends for 2012

How to kick it into high gear after the holidays



Published:

[ 1 ] Piloxing

What: The latest mash-up in the fitness world, Piloxing, is about to descend on San Diego. This turbo-charged workout marries the intensity and agility of boxing with the core strengthening and sculpting of Pilates plus exhilarating dance moves.

Celeb followers: Hilary Duff and Heather Morris from Glee.

What it does: Tones, slims, and creates a sleek physique. 

Where to go: The Sporting Club in La Jolla will be the first place in San Diego to offer Piloxing in February 2012. thesportingclub.com

[ 2 ] Minimalist Running Shoe

What: The new ultra lightweight Skechers provide a little extra bounce in your step. 

How: The technology in these shoes promotes a mid-foot strike for a more efficient stride that gets your foot off the ground faster and propels your body forward.

Where to buy: skechers.com

[ 3 ] FitTAP

What: This adult dance workout program—all the rage with moms and their progeny—is a fusion of cardio and choreography. In this mentally focused workout, tappers improve their coordination and find their inner rhythm.

Why so hot: “Tap dancing is timeless,” says owner and creator Sylvania Reyna. “It’s a fun way to get in shape, though most people forget they’re even working out. It’s the benefits of exercise with the joy of dance.” 

Where to go: Dance North County, Encinitas. fittap.net 

[ 4 ] B-12 Shots

What: North County ladies are going gaga for the program that combines weekly B-12 shots with fish oil supplements and a low carb diet. You can still have wine and cheese—just in the right amounts.

Who: Dr. Jonathan M. Haynes from One Life personally delivers a vitamin, supplement, and nutritional regimen from his Solana Beach office. Haynes, a former Scripps physician, believes that weekly vitamin B injections elevate mood and energy so working out and eating right are that much easier. “Vitamin B makes you motivated, focused, and energized so you don’t lose your mojo.”

[ 5 ] Ritual Cleanse

What: During this three-day cleanse, sip six freshly-pressed juices daily, made from 15 pounds of fruit, veggies, and nuts, totaling about 800 calories a day. 

Taste: We love these 100 percent organic juice blends, with mega antioxidants from real food, that don’t taste like grass-flavored sludge. Think blended apples, celery, beets, and pears.

If you exercise: Athletes will appreciate their pre- and post-workout juices. For fuel, the “Pre-Shred” combines beets to increase oxygen intake and celery to maintain electrolyte balance, while the high protein almond-based “Post-Shred” abets muscle recovery. 

Where to get: Home delivery or pick-up stations like Haute Yoga in Solana Beach or Carlsbad. ritualcleanse.com
