If you have trouble sticking with a fitness plan, staying motivated, and even just getting yourself to the gym on a regular basis, you may want to give group fitness classes a try. Group fitness classes boast all sorts of benefits that will help you get excited about working out again.
One of the great things about these classes is the variety of classes available. Years ago, the options were limited to mainly aerobics, but now there is a class for almost anything you can imagine. From dance classes that range from hip-hop to ballet to Zumba, to yoga, pilates, boot camp style classes and high intensity spinning, there is sure to be a class that will catch your interest.
When you’re doing something fun and new, you will find that your workouts fly by. So if you’re not a treadmill person, go dance, cycle or workout in the water for an hour, and you won’t feel like you’re just putting your time in.
Another great benefit of group fitness classes is the social aspect. As you regularly attend these classes, you will get to know other class members, and soon you will all look forward to getting together, which will help you be more consistent – it’s harder to skip when you get to see friends and know that they are expecting you to come.
The advantages don’t end there. Group fitness classes also help gym members get a full workout in, as the teachers are trained and knowledgeable about working out the entire body, incorporating both cardio and strength. Many people also find that they work out harder in a group setting as they get caught up in the friendly social pressure and competition. So if you are looking for something new to keep you interested and consistent in your fitness routine, check out our group fitness classes at In Motion Fitness!
