By Jennifer

Ah, I remember my twenties… I was fit without trying, and never got tired or sore. If you’re in your twenties now, you’re probably the same, and you’re so lucky! But you ought to start forming your workout habits now, so it’ll be easier to keep going as you get a little older. If you’re wondering what the best workouts are for someone your age, keep reading! Here’s my list of 8 great workouts for women in their 20’s.

1 Zumba

This combines hot dance moves, fantastic music, and heart-thumping aerobics all in one 45-minute class! It’s fun, and exhausting, but you’re young enough that it won’t wipe you out. Schedule a class with your best friends, and shake your bootie while getting a great workout!

2 Elliptical

Even in your twenties, you’ll need four days of cardio exercise for about 20 – 30 minutes each time. The elliptical machine is a great way to get that cardio workout, and the best part is you can watch TV or even read a book or magazinewhile you’re doing it!

3 Weight Training

Even in your twenties, weight training is a fabulous idea to tone and strengthen your muscle groups. You only need weight training three times a week to tone and trim muscles, but if you’re trying to bulk up (you might!) then increase your training to five days a week.

4 Running/Jogging

If you’re in your twenties, then your knees and ankles are probably still in good enough condition that you can runand jog for a cardio workout. Be sure to invest in a good pair of shoes designed just for running, and go all out!

5 Yoga

You’ll be amazed at how good of a workout you can get from a once-weekly step aerobics class. The key to any good workout, according tomy personal trainer, is that if you’re still able to chat with your neighbor, then you’re not working out hard enough. You want to be a little out of breath…
