What are fitness classes?

Fitness classes have pretty much always been around, but over the last decade the trend boomed with the likes of Zumba and HIIT leading the charge on ‘casual runners’.

Fitness classes offer an effective way to quickly burn fat, build muscle, or just get you into the shape you desire. They can offer a variety of benefits and with there usually being multiple people, it’s easier to stay motivated!

Why should I go to fitness classes?

If you’re wondering whether you should go to a fitness class, it all boils down to how you feel you perform best whilst doing fitness: Do you prefer being with a group? Do you prefer having an expert on-hand? Do you want to get your workout finished as soon as possible? 

If you answered yes to any or all of the above, you’ll probably benefit from a fitness class! Let’s have a deeper look at just a selection of the reasons why fitness classes are great:

  • You gain access to a fitness expert for a fraction of the price of a session with a Personal Trainer - with similar benefits!
  • Fitness classes tend to be great fun, and repeat customers will likely make some friends along the way.
  • Anybody can join in and complete most classes (there are also expert classes), whatever your level.
  • It offers superb value for money - you get an expert-led workout, sometimes for the price of a meal deal!
  • You can try out a boat-load of different classes and workouts, and take the best ones home with you!
  • It’s important to remember, whatever your level, whatever your schedule, whatever your requirements are; there are fitness classes out there suitable for you and your life.
