By now, everybody probably knows my obsession with cardio workouts – from running to my absolute favorite spinning class called SoulCycle, I love the endorphin high you get after sweating it out. Obviously though, I know that it isn’t enough to get a complete workout – you obviously have to tone your muscles as well! I remember for the longest time, I had no interest in strengthening – I thought it would me look bulky and mannish and cause unnecessary weight gain. How wrong I was! While I realize now that women can’t build enough muscle to look bulky (we don’t have enough testosterone), what I love about this current class that I’m going to be talking about is that it focuses on “long and lean”…aka just amazing, toned muscles!
