One of the biggest trends in fitness today is to take part in group exercise classes. With classes ranging from abdominal classes to kickboxing, there is a class geared for almost anyone’s likes and abilities. Many local fitness centers now offer active older adult exercise classes geared for those seniors that want to stay fit. Now the question is: which class is right for you?
When choosing a group exercise class, first you have to get an idea as to what you are looking to achieve. Do you want to lose weight, increase muscle tone, help your aching back feel better, or just get in better shape? Next, look at what times are convenient for you. Many people, when they join a gym, make their lives revolve around their gym schedule. This leads to stress and eventually you will quit because you have made your schedule impossible. Fit your group exercise classes and your gym time into your life. Make sure you find a class that you enjoy, also. If you are making the time and commitment to your exercise regimen, make sure you are having a good time.
Once you have committed to a group exercise class, get to know your instructor and those that are in the class with you. You will find that you will make friends with those in class and will end up having a great relationship with your group exercise instructor. You will then be accountable to those relationships in class! When you don’t show up for class for a few days, the troops start calling you to find out why you haven’t been in class. This accountability is great for keeping you motivated during times when it’s easy to quit working out.
