  2. HIIT The HIIT workout helps you burn calories instantly. The workout is a high-intensity exercise done in a very quick pace, with only short periods of rest. HIIT may be a combination of squats, burpees, CrossFit, or Pilates. Each exercise is done within 45 seconds and 15 seconds rest before you move on to the next exercise. Get your water and towel nearby, because you’re going to sweat a lot.3
  3. Wearable tech Wearable tech is all the rage in Malaysia last year, and the trend is still hot and will not likely to fade away in 2017 anytime soon. Fitness apps, smartwatches, and fitness trackers have made working out more bearable and easier, either for fitness enthusiasts or fitness beginners. Keeping track and achieving your fitness goals have never been this easier and smoother.4
  4. Dance Cardio For some people who hates the feeling of working out, it can be challenging to have fun while you want to stay fit and burn off calories. Thankfully, cardio workout is the 2017’s popular choice. A dance cardio class in Malaysia will feel more like a party than a typical workout session, with cool music to boot. For more fun, do it in a small group of three to five people, and dance your blues away.5
  5. Boxing Boxing is making a comeback. Celebs like Demi Lovato helps to spark interests towards boxing among Millennials when she shared an Instagram video of her boxing with Rocky actor and Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone.
