There are hundreds of ways to exercise. Some people prefer to run on a treadmill, and others prefer to go on a hike in the woods. Some like to exercise in private, and others like to exercise in a group. With so many options, how do you pick the exercise plan that’s right for you? While we like to say a variety of exercise is the best way to get the results you want, you may prefer to stick to one thing! At RizFit, you can use the cardio studio, weight lifting room, semi-private and private training sessions, and Bootcamp group classes. You may already have an open gym membership or a steady exercise schedule and are looking for something extra. You may be wondering, “is a group class right for me?” To help you decide, here are the reasons why most of our members join Bootcamp month after month!
Reason #1 - To Get in Better Shape
Most people join group classes with the goal of getting into better shape. By getting in better shape, we don’t necessarily mean weight loss. With a group class like Bootcamp, participants lose fat and gain muscle with the result of a healthier you. Just like any exercise, the results happen more quickly if you eat a balanced, healthy diet. Everyone’s body and goals are different but the thing we noticed in common is that people who sign up for group classes want to feel healthier and get in better shape.
Reason #2 - To Be Part of a Community
Reason #3 - To Get Tips from The Professionals
Reason #4 - To Mix Up The Routine
Some people have their set routine already and want a short term class to mix it up. Classes like Bootcamp that go a month and then reset are the perfect way to change up the fitness schedule without commiting to something long term. If you have a month long break between fitness activities to fill in, then a short term group class might be the perfect solution. On top of the convenience of a month long class, participants might learn something new to bring with them on future fitness endeavors.
Reason #5 - Try Out a New Gym
Lastly, a reason that people join group classes is to get a sense of the gym. Maybe they want to switch from another gym, start a new membership, just moved to the area, or have not joined a gym before. Some people join a month long group class to get a sense of the space, the equipment, the energy of people who go to that gym, the amenities, and how the trainers operate at that gym. By the end of the month, they have a better idea about the gym and can make an informed decision to sign up. If you want to dip your toes in the water and check a new gym out, then take a month long group class.
Overall, group classes are a great way to have fun, get fit, meet new people, mix up the routine, and learn a few new tricks! At RizFit Fitness Studio, we offer a month long Bootcamp class in the mornings and evenings with owner and head trainer Peter Rizzo. Join us for an hour of high intensity, fun, and a true sense of community. Check out RizFit’s group class schedule for more information and sign up for a drop in.
