Lose Weight and Stay Strong with Group Exercise!

With all the daily group fitness classes offered at Genesis Health Clubs, it’s hard to know which one is right for you. Why choose group fitness at all, you ask?

Let's talk about the health benefits of group exercise and why it's a great way to find REAL RESULTS,  then discuss the various classes offered, so you can find the right ones for you and your needs. 

Group Fitness Health Benefits

Whether you’ve joined a health club for weight loss, sports training, or just improving your overall health, group fitness is a great way to start. Rather than trying to come up with your own exercise routine, you can choose the classes that fit your schedule, meet new friends with similar goals, learn good techniques, and get an effective workout.

1. Driven by Music

Every group fitness class incorporates upbeat music because studies have shown that people work harder when exercising with music.

2. Stay Motivated

Exercising with a group can help you stay committed and meet your goals. Group fitness members are more successful because they workout more times per week on average and stick with their routines longer.

3. Consistency is Key

One of the best ways to meet your workout goals is to make exercise a part of your regular routine. Group exercise classes are held at different times on different days, so you can choose the ones that fit your schedule. In this way, working out becomes a positive, healthy habit.

4. Accountability

When life gets hectic, it can be tempting to skip a workout, but knowing your friends and instructor will notice you’re gone can be the push you need to get out the door anyway. During class, knowing other people are there working hard with you makes it easier to push through tough workouts.

5. Structured Workouts

Whether you’re new to working out or want to take your fitness to the next level, there’s no need to wander around the gym trying to decide what to do first. Group fitness instructors are trained to create effective workouts that will help you get the strengthening, toning, and stretching you need.

6. Learn Proper Form

Group fitness instructors are there to motivate you and encourage you, but they also help you develop the correct technique. Proper form can help you avoid injury and get the most benefit from your workout.

7. Challenge Yourself

There are a variety of fitness classes that make it easy to learn something new or push yourself to meet new goals. Whether you try boot camp, yoga, Pilates, cycle, water exercise, barre, or Zumba, mixing up your routine also boosts metabolism by creating muscle confusion. And, you’ll never get bored!

8. Fun Atmosphere | Sense of Community

Group fitness classes are a great way to get healthy and have fun doing it. The upbeat music helps make your workout seem easier, and you can get swept away by your instructor’s enthusiasm and the flow of the class. You’ll want to come back again and again, forming a sense of community with all the friends you make.

So, now that we know the health benefits of group exercise... Which class do you choose with so many options out there?
