15 weird exercise fads to get you into shape

The good, the bad and the utterly bizarre...


It's all well and good being told that exercising leads to a healthy body and mind, but running on a conveyor belt isn't exactly inspiring.

Gyms are often full of chunky men, making love to themselves in the mirror as they lift more weights than you will ever manage.

To get you out of the gym, we've short-listed 15 weird work-outs that may actually inspire you to get moving (...although there's strong chance they won't).

Reward your exercise efforts with free brownies, popcorn and flapjacks - and that's just the start...

1. Baby yoga

First find a baby (we recommend checking with the kid's mum before) and fling the baby around. 'It's very good for babies and not dangerous at all’, says Lena Fokina, a qualified PE teacher.

Um, no, doesn't look it at all....

2. Antigravity yoga

3. Spin karaoke

4. Glee Sing-a-thon

Sticking with the singing theme...

5. Kangoo jumping

6. Face yoga

Pulling funny faces actually has some benefits. Making 'the owl' and 'the puffer fish’ can actually smooth wrinkles, firm jaw lines and create a healthy glow.

7. Cat yoga

8. Snake yoga

9. Dance dance party party

‘No boys, no booze, no judgement’ that’s the motto of Dance Dance Party Party. The thought of dancing without any alcohol may be terrifying, but once you start you’ll soon feel like your 9-year-old self, busting moves at a school disco.

10. Paddleboard yoga

11. Rave exercise class

12. Sauna suits

13. Dumbbell Eating Utensils

14. 50 ‘Shapes’ of Grey
