5 Days, 5 Ways: Guys' Workout Style

Remix Your Workout Wardrobe

We’ve all been there: we find a workout that works, and commit to a regular routine…only to wake up one day and think, “I will never again step foot on that track/treadmill/trampoline for the rest of my life, so help me God.”

When you find yourself in a fitness funk, it’s easy to fall right off the workout wagon. Besides overcoming mental monotony, an exercise regimen steeped in variety provides serious physical benefits: from strengthening more muscle groups to preventing strain from overworking the same ones.

Now, at the risk of getting all men are from Mars, women are from Venus on you, I actually think us ladies generally do a pretty good job of mixing up our workouts. Thanks to services like Classpass, it’s easy to try lots of different group fitness classes and keep from getting bored. So when ASICS challenged me to take part in their “Remix Your Workout” campaign, I jumped at the opportunity to drag *er* bring a guy friend to a few of my favorite studios here in NYC.

Check out the five workouts – and how to dress for them – we did in five days, with the help of the new ASICS fuzeX TR™ sneakers. Then, find out how to win a pair of your own.
