We all want to look fab and fit in the summer months, so we're trying new diets and  working out as much as possible. We want to look good on the river in our suits!

That said, I have a harder time working out in the summer months. I like spending my summer eating barbequed foods, and drinking, so working out tends to fly out the window. -- That's what those long winters are for.

Most Popular Workouts In North Dakota

I don't know what you're doing, but this is what everyone else is doing to get in shape.

A study was done by Total Shape and it found North Dakota's most popular workouts.

The source looked at average number of google searches for different workouts. Phrases they looked for included, "X classes," and "X classes near me."

Top 5:

5. Yoga

I recently got a membership at a yoga studio in Mandan. I LOVE it. It's a great way to work on your posture and flexibility.

4. Aerobics

For our high-energy North Dakotans, aerobics comes in at number four.

3. Dance

We do it in our kitchens, we do it when no one's looking, when we have to pee, when we're generally happy, and many North Dakotans do it to burn off some lb's. Good for us! Dance party it up!


I'll be honest, I had to look this one up. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. If you're like me, you still have no idea what that means.

From what I've gathered, it means you're doing a lot of jogging and walking. You're doing burst of intense exercise everyday.

Personally, I consider it a win if I can walk on a treadmill for 30 minutes while watching a cooking show and getting hit with 15 food commercials and not find myself in a drive-thru line immediately after leaving the gym.

1. Boxing

Yes, the number one workout in North Dakota is boxing. I've yet to meet a boxer here, but they're out there, according to the source.

Cooling Down

While looking at google searches gives us an idea as to what exercise people are interested in and/or want to do the most, I'm not sure I can confidently say that these are the exercises we're doing the most.
