Could Group Fitness Classes Help Improve Your Workout?
Group fitness classes are a great way to lose weight, as the support of others in the same position to yourself can be great to help you feel motivated. Without even realising it, you will be benefiting your wellness and wellbeing, whilst having a whole lot of fun. Group exercise classes provide a feeling of camaraderie, a very important aspect to any sport.
Group classes are often divided into skill levels, but anyone can take part and is catered for. There are so many different classes to choose from.
Cardio Challenge is one such class, and it mixes low impact and basic step aerobics in a fun format that is designed to get your heart racing and your muscles working hard.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is another, which is a self-defence martial art class which centres around the idea of ground fighting and gaining dominance in a fight against an opponent.
Fitness Training Camps are also popular with people with all levels of fitness. They generally involve 30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise followed by 20 minutes of strength training, done in groups, often outdoors.
Body Sculpting is along the same lines, too, focusing on strength training and endurance using resistance bands or free weight.
Iron Man core classes aim to boost cardio-respiratory fitness as well as core strength. Core Conditioning is similar, but focuses on the lower body and core muscles, which has the added benefit of strengthening your abdominal muscles and improving your posture.
Indoor Group Cycling provides an intensive cardio workout for people of all fitness levels and of various ages, as the pedalling speed and resistance varies from person to person.
Pilates is a gentler type of class, and focuses on building endurance and core muscles, rebalancing the body and building strength in a long-lasting way.
