4 Workouts That Didn't Work for Us, Even Though We Wanted Them To


Urban Outfitters

It's no secret that we've all tried a crazy workout or two (or 10). As beauty editors, we're in touch with the latest fitness trends and attend classes for research all the time. Often, we fall in love with it and continue to integrate the class into our regular lives. But every so often—even when we try our very hardest—we just can't get into it. Or, something that works for a friend or colleague just doesn't yield the same results for us. Because I know what I like (yoga) and what I don't (choreographed dancing), I assumed my fellow Byrdie editors would have similar success stories… and a few fitness failures as well.

Below, we lay it all out: The good, the bad, and the very exhausting.
