5 Fun & Easy Workouts + Hairstyles

We get it, you are not a gym type of girl and neither are we, but who said you have to go to the gym to workout?  We looked for some alternatives and have discovered there are other ways to get your heart pumping outside of the gym.

Hula Hoop

Yes, you read it right, hula hoop.  Re-visit a childhood activity with a weighted hula hoop and hula your way into being fit.  All you need is a weighted hula hoop and your favorite TV show.  You can complete this activity in your living room or  your backyard.

Wear your hair with two side braids and a bun.  For a chic look and extra hold, layer CyndiBands headbands.


Kickboxing Class

Kickboxing class, a two in one kind of activity.  This high-energy workout will not only help you burn calories and fat, but you will brush up on your self-defense skills that can come in handy at any given moment.

Wear your hair in two boxer braids to keep away from your face.  Your focus will be on circuits and strengthening exercises instead of your hair.

BONUS! Look extra cute and match your CyndiBands hair ties to your outfit!




Wear your hair in a high ponytail and braid and take your cardio outside.  Yes, you can run at the gym on the treadmill but how boring is that?  Go for a jog around your neighborhood or at a nearby track. Not only is it refreshing, but you have the chance of meeting new people.



BONUS! Throw on a headband for extra hold.

Dance Class

With the rising popularity of Zumba, it is easier than ever to burn calories while learning new dance moves. A fun, high energy class that will help you burn up to 1,000 calories without realizing it! Too shy to attend a class? No worries, there are various DVDs available for purchase, so that you can do Zumba in the comfort of your home.

Pull your hair back into a high ponytail. For extra hold, layer two CyndiBands hair ties and use our Knot Trick for a tight fit that will last throughout your workout.




There are many benefits from doing Yoga and getting fit is just one of them.  Bored of the same Yoga class?  Stay engaged by trying different variations of Yoga that can provide a new experience each time.

To keep hair away from your face, wear your hair in this braided bun.
