Whether you are new to the gym, stuck in a routine, or unfamiliar to exercise, group fitness classes are for you.
One of the most important factors in an exercise routine is motivation. Sometimes when were are bored with a routine or unsure of what we should be doing, we become unmotivated. Being surrounded by individuals who are likeminded and dedicated is inspiring. Having an encouraging instructor helps, too. Group fitness classes are a great way to motivate you to step up your workout and try to push yourself harder.
Group fitness is a great way to get a workout in without having to plan anything or even think for that matter. Each class is structured and planned for you. Instructors will warm you up by getting your heart rate up, they will coach you through the workout step by step, correct your form if needed, cool you down to safely bring your heart rate back down, and stretch out your muscles.
There are so many different kinds of group fitness classes. When you bring variety to your weekly workout regimen, it creates confusion in your muscles which keeps your body guessing and ramps up your metabolism. It also keeps you from getting bored with your workouts.
Having something or someone to hold you accountable always will help! Whether it’s the class itself, the other participants in the class, or the instructor, you are expected to show up and work hard.
Group fitness classes are fun! You have great instructors, upbeat music, challenging workouts, and a group of people motivating each other throughout the class.
If you are looking to spice things up, change things around, or revamp your workouts- group fitness classes are just what you need. Check out our group fitness schedule here at Dedham Health & Athletic Complex, I promise you will enjoy it.
