Take It To The Beach: Burn Circuit

Living in San Diego, we’re fortunate to be able to experience summertime weather year round! With the weather always being beautiful, it’s nice to mix up your workout routine and take it outdoors every once in a while.

If you’ve ever taken one of our Burn classes, then you know this high intensity class is designed to burn fat while toning your muscles, giving you the ideal “summer body.” Luckily, if you’re looking to spend some extra time at the beach this summer, you can take your favorite boot camp style class to the beach with you for a quick and intense workout with similar benefits (though you won’t have your favorite trainers there to motivate you, but they’ll be there in spirit!).

The beauty of this boot camp is that you don't need any equipment except your body (and some sun and sand, of course). So take advantage of the year round perfect weather and beautiful beaches in San Diego with the following beach circuit workout.
