If you’re like a lot of guys, your idea of group fitness is casually one-upping the dudes on the weight benches next to you. And when your ladyfriend meets up with you after her sweat session raving about how hard her instructor drilled them, you think, “That’s nice, Honey,” and go back to plotting out your next pyramid set. Not so fast. While it may seem like many classes are tailored to female fitness desires, all sorts of important manly skills can be honed in them, too, from agility and flexibility to (yes) strength and power. All that, plus major girlfriend brownie points (and some in-class eye candy)? Taking classes like these is a no-brainer.
The best fitness classes for men: Indoor cycling, yoga, treadmill, HIIT, and more.
