If you’ve become, ahem, cuddlier this winter, try these core workouts for getting ab-fab by swimsuit season.

If you like Mountain climbers, chest presses, and planks
Try TRX: This suspension training system, invented by a former Navy SEAL, has you work against your own body weight.
Where Witzlib Fitness Studio, 365 Peachtree Hills Avenue

If you like Precise, controlled, dancer-like movements
Try Pilates, on mats or on specialized machines, to build flexibility and core strength.
Where CORE, 550 Pharr Road

If you like Push-ups, burpees, squat jumps
Try HIIT (high-intensity interval training): Intense, heart-pumping bursts followed by active recovery—say, holding a plank—maximize calorie burn.
Where BLAST, with locations in Midtown and Buckhead
