How to Choose the Best Group Exercise Class for You

It’s no secret that group fitness classes are great tools to add to your exercise routine. Not only do they give you access to experienced instructors who can help you improve your workout, but they also keep boredom at bay and provide a social experience for meeting new people.

But if you’ve never taken a group fitness class before, how do you know where to start?

Beginning a group fitness program can be daunting at first, but this blog will walk you through the steps of deciding which classes are best for your individual needs and give you the motivation to start today!


How To Get Started

When choosing a fitness class that's right for you, follow these tips:


Keep Your Current Fitness Level in Mind

Some classes are designed specifically for beginners, while others are designed for people with advanced skill sets. Be honest with yourself about your current fitness level and choose fitness classes that match. You can always advance if you find the class isn't challenging enough. 


Choose a Group Workout That Fits Your Schedule

If your schedule is busy, that’s okay. Look for group workouts that fit your schedule. Consider the length of the class, when it’s offered, and how much time you’ll need after the class to get on with your day. You can choose weekend classes or group fitness workouts that are before or after work.


Get Recommendations From a Personal Trainer

A group fitness gym will have a variety of different trainers ready to assist you. He or she can give you a tour of the gym and discuss your goals and current fitness ability, and how they line up with classes the exercise studio offers. 


Keep Things Interesting

Keep in mind that no fitness class is forever. Once you select a fitness class, it doesn't mean you have to stick with that class forever. It’s always a good idea to switch things up to get the best results and keep things exciting.
