So most people know the benefits of exercise... less risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes etc. Plus the general well being factor of having more energy and increased self confidence.
And for lots of people a gym is the perfect environment to work out in and try and achieve these benefits but some prefer to get their exercise in the form of classes.
Group exercise classes are about more than the loud music, fast movements and shouts of encouragement. They can also offer social inclusion opportunities, physical benefits and psychological support.
Attending a group fitness class gets you up off the couch and out of the same four walls of your home to meet people in your community. You are likely to have fun exercising in a group and fitness classes are a wonderful place to meet people who have similar lifestyle goals and needs. Make friends, have adult conversations and discover solutions to problems as you talk with other participants before and after class.
Plus participating in a group exercise class challenges you to work out beyond your perceived limitations. The instructor observes your body for signs of fatigue and pushes you to your limits. You are likely to work out harder, as everyone is exercising toward the same goal, than you would on your own. A group fitness instructor explains the benefits of each exercise, which increases your reasons to complete the workout and keeps you returning to class.
Exercising as a group can also help keep you accountable to keep going. When the instructor and other participants ask why you were absent, they generally are concerned for your well-being, and you will not want to have an "I sat on the couch" answer.
All of these reasons are why Coastside Fitness are now offering a mixture of classes at the fantastic new Studio8 premises near the bottom of the high street, situated behind Glow and within the gym above Boots.
From Pilates to HIIT and LBT to Indoor Cycling with Insanity and PiYo coming soon there are classes to suit all tastes where your fitness instructor will challenge and help you to improve your body.
