And it doesn't seem to stop! All girls feel better thanks to it. More health, more smile and energy! These are the effects of fit-revolution!
A decade ago the most popular fitness activity was aerobics and later – step. It was often practised at some old gym or elsewhere where the only audio system was a boombox. So it was. After some time, professional clubs started to be set up in larger cities. In the meanwhile, Ewa Chodakowska became the coach of all Polish women.
Undoubtedly, she should take credit for the most interesting fitness activities. If you take the number of girls working out at the gyms and the ones working out with Ewa – well, she turns out unmatched. She greatly participated in making exercises and healthy lifestyle popular among Polish women.
Today however, we are focusing on courses taking place at the club gyms. After the era of gym, step, zumba or other salsation, the new workouts take over.
Here are 5 most popular workouts for women:

This training is accompanied by dynamically changing music.Hence, all muscles participate and all body parts are stimulated thanks to which you can build a balanced, strong and symmetrical silhouette.

It’s short but the effects are incredible.
