Summer's hot and sunny days are upon us. But if you're still shunning short skirts, sleeveless tops and bare-it-all-bathing suits because your winter layer won't seem to budge, it's time to STOP working out.
This summer, trade in the treadmill and stationary-bike-to-nowhere for some more fun fitness options that will transform your WORKout into a PLAYout.
Here are five I've recently tried... and loved!

Like many little girls, I took buckets of dance classes when I was young. But while ballet was where I excelled, the "let's make some noise" tap classes were always the most fun. My second stop was The Human Rhythm Project on South Michigan Avenue where I took a refresher course in Tap 101. The studio's old-school vibe, our young hipster instructor, and the urban music gave me the feeling of being on the set of "Fame." We reviewed the basic toe-heel techniques across the floor and then learned a snappy combination that challenged both my body and mind. While it wasn't a sweat-fest, this playout re-introduced me to muscles I thought I'd deleted from my contacts.
