Going to a gym is no longer the default choice of exercise for many people around the world.

From ballet-inspired barre classes to indoor cycling studios, there is an increasing number of options to choose from.

Using data from ClassPass, the Google Ventures-backed gym membership startup, these are the most popular workouts in the 25 cities it is active in.

YOGA: Sydney, Australia; Austin, Seattle, Columbus, Ohio, Colorado, Minneapolis, USA.

Yoga dates back to 10,000 years ago, according to some researchers, and it is now popular worldwide. Dozens of studies have linked a regular yoga practice to stronger, more flexible muscles, a healthier heart and, in people with depression and anxiety, a decrease in negative symptoms.

STRENGTH TRAINING: London, UK; Toronto, Canada; Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco, USA.

Strength training involves your muscles resisting some kind of weight — heavy or light. According to the author of “Strength Training for Fat Loss” Nick Tumminello says: “If you’re looking to lose fat, go with strength training.” And if you needed more convincing, it’s how model Kate Upton stays in shape!

CYCLING: Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Philadelphia, USA.

Indoor cycling studios have become increasingly popular as a way to burn a high number of calories. But experts have called the safety of cycling-studio brand SoulCycle’s workouts into question.
