All New Cardio Workouts for an Extra Sweaty Summer

Run, cycle, jump, jog, and climb your way to a new personal record.

We love all of our Aaptiv classes; but we’re extra excited about this batch of new workouts available on the app today. Our coaches put in the work designing smart and fun workouts.

And, in the spirit of graduation season, we’re so proud to send each class off into the real world to see what it becomes. Maybe they’ll become speed chasers and help you set a new personal record.

Or they’ll be music masters that have you dancing while training (check out Jennifer’s It’s All About The Resistance, No Incline elliptical class for an amazing pop hits playlist). Either way, #TeamAaptiv is about to get extra sweaty—and maybe a little sore! Happy training!
