Julianne Hough and Kaley Cuoco are known for their incredible abs, and both stars credit CorePower Yoga for toning their tummies. CorePower — which has studios nationwide and a New York City location opening in May — offers regular and hot yoga classes that incorporate weights for serious muscle toning.
“I just feel so much better after I work out,” Hough told PEOPLE. “I have the endorphins going, and I’m happy and excited for the day. It’s more the aftermath effects than the actual, physical I-want-my-body-to-look-ripped effect.”
“Erin’s schedule is obviously crazy, so whenever she’s in New York or L.A. she tries to make it to one of our studios, and she’s a huge fan of our video on demand platform, which she uses on the road when she’s traveling,” founder and instructor Tanya Becker told PEOPLE. “She’s a huge fan of the method.”
“We go through arms, your thighs and your glutes, and we’re engaging your core about 80 percent of the class, so it’s ab work throughout,” said Becker. “Then we finish on the floor with specific targeted exercises, and of course dessert — stretching at the end.”
Ashley Greene loves Rise Nation classes, which seriously amp up your average stairmaster workout. At 30 minutes, the classes are short — but the VersaClimber machines help you burn 22.3 calories a minute. You'll blast a whopping 669 calories.
“It’s 30 minutes, so for me it’s easy to get motivated for something like that,” Greene told PEOPLE. “You sweat out any toxin that you had in your body, and it’s a fun atmosphere. There’s loud music — it’s like you’re training in a club!”
Body By Simone
Stars like Chrissy Teigen and Taylor Swift flock to trainer Simone De La Rue's Body By Simone classes, and now you can try one yourself at her New York City and Los Angeles studios. De La Rue's classes include 45 minutes of dance cardio, followed by ab and arm exercises.
“Body By Simone workouts are effective because they get your heart rate up, torch calories, and tone your entire body, all while having fun!” Body By Simone creator De La Rue told PEOPLE. “People love BBS because no class is ever the same. They allow you to literally dance like no one is watching."
Cycling classes are a dime a dozen at this point, so mix it up with underwater cycling at AQUA Studio. The bikes sit 4 feet underwater, and the added resistance burns up to 800 calories an hour, according to AQUA. Even Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is a fan, and led a class at AQUA.
"It was actually pretty hard, but you know, I compete in the Olympics," Lochte jokingly told PEOPLE.
Get ready to squeeze your glutes in time to a soundtrack of chart-topping hits at Pop Physique, a barre-style class in the U.S. and Canada. The hour-long, muscle-burning class tones every part of the body.
“You’re really pushing yourself to your absolute edge,” Pop Physique founder Jennifer Williams told PEOPLE. “There is a deep muscle fatigue and toning that happens during the thigh work component of the class. You really can get the most intense, deep calorie burn.”
