You don’t have to put on a serious face to get fit. In fact, fun and unique exercise programs may be just what you need to stay motivated if you are not a fitness buff. Below is a look at just a few of the not-so-serious workouts that prove you can burn calories while having fun.

Karaoke cardio

If music motivates you to increase the intensity of your workout, karaoke cardio classes may be just what you need to get you in the gym. Karaoke cardio has cyclists singing their way through each class with classic karaoke jams to exercise your vocal cords while you pump your legs.
