Group fitness classes provide accountability

Group fitness classes provide accountability

For a long time, I struggled to stick with any kind of regular workout regiment. I tried going for a run when I’d get home from work and that was beneficial for a short time. I gradually started using the weather or my hectic schedule as an excuse. For a while, I got motivated by different workout videos. However, I realized that it was too easy to be lazy and not push myself. I wasn’t getting the most out of my time. I eventually joined a gym, thinking the membership fees would help to motivate me. I still managed to find ways to avoid going to the gym. I’ve finally figured out that the key to a successful workout plan is group fitness classes. Once I sign up for a class, I treat it like my job. I feel that I have no choice but to show up every time, on time and prepared to give 100%. Through my gym membership, I have access to a changing selection of fitness classes. They are all run by certified fitness trainers and range in intensity from beginner to advanced. I don’t really care what type of class it is. I’ve taken kickboxing, Tae Bo, pilates, spin, yoga, circuit training, crossfit and boot camp. Some of them have been extremely demanding while others were more about socializing. As long as the day and time of the class accommodates my work schedule, I join it. I try to have some type of class at least five days per week. I sometimes participate in more than one class per day on the weekends.
