Kickstart your cardio with Capoeira


Posted by Lindsay M.

Bust your workout rut with a trip to Brazil! Well, not exactly. But a class or two in the ancient Brazilian martial art of Capoiera is sure to throw a curve ball into your hum drum workout routine, and bolster self-confidence. Developed by enslaved Africans in 16th century Brazil, the heart-pulsing exercise focuses on kicks, acrobatics, and heavy groundwork like handstands. The rhythmic moves fall under the high impact aerobic category, so gear up to torch calories, improve muscle tone and flexibility. Another plus? It's a social exercise, so partnering is critical. Rhythmic music round out the exercise. Check out at www.capoeira.com for more information (you can post to the forums to find classes in your area).
