Cycling classes are an increasingly popular way to work out. You get all the health benefits of a long bike ride with the convenience of a studio class.

Resistance Cycle in Harbor Point is another highly-rated spin studio, with 45-minute classes that combine resistance cycling and upper body toning.
Pilates is another great way to get your body moving in the new year. Here in Charm City, you can try it for yourself at Pilates House, located in Fells Point. The studio offers a wide variety of pilates classes from the fundamentals all the way up to an intense flow. They also have heated classes to really get your sweat on.
Looking for a workout that’s good for mind and body alike? Try a class at Breathing Dragon Yoga in Harbor Point. They offer hot yoga classes for students of all skill ranges, so it’s the perfect place to get some movement in. If you want to start your yoga journey at home, try a virtual yoga class. Jessica Hensley Yoga and Yoga Works both offer livestream classes that you can take from the comfort of your Spinnaker Bay apartment home.
HIIT (high-intensity interval training) makes use of quick, repeated circuits to build strength and condition the body. One popular group class is F45 in Fells Point, which packs plenty of heart-pumping movements into one 45-minute class.
