Party on a Stairclimber and a Challenging New Take on Leg Day

A brand new batch of classes to beat the Monday blues.

This week it’s all about training hard and recovering smart. Be sure to check out “Metabolic Plyos”, a bodyweight cardio burner, when you’re short on time but want a #sweateveryday moment. Coach Jaime’s “Activate and Engage” is the perfect, feel-good, full-body dynamic warm-up routine you can do before an intense Aaptiv class, and coach Amanda’s “Chair Yoga Stretch” is a daily routine you can do to release tension in your wrists, shoulders, and neck.

Share your sweaty selfies with us using the hashtag #TeamAaptiv so we can send you virtual high fives and cheers!
