How To Choose A Great Fitness Class
This is the time of year when we head back to the gym with resolutions still freshly in mind. More often than not, the first thing we do when we get there is sign up for a fitness class. While this is a great idea for a number of reasons, you are still faced with the decision of which class is the best for you. Here are three quick tips for narrowing down your choices.
- Mix it up: Look for classes that focus on interval training and that incorporate both cardio and resistance training. Don’t just burn energy (calories). Make sure you're producing something with that energy.
- Ask questions: Ask your instructor to tell you exactly how his or her workouts will build aerobic conditioning, endurance and strength. Ask how often you should take the class and when you should expect to start seeing results. Make sure the answers are in line with your fitness goals.
- Look for the results: When you are in a good class, you gain real fitness that translates into real health benefits more directly than simply losing weight and body fat. If you’re not getting the results you want, look for a new class.
Follow these pointers and you'll save yourself a lot of time and effort experimenting with fitness classes that don't help you achieve your fitness goals.
