If you want to know one of the main things that make Fernwood different from other women’s only gyms, you need only to look at our group fitness timetables.
Group fitness has come a long way from the old-style aerobics that you might remember from the eighties. And thank God the leotard is a thing of the past – even if Madonna tried to bring it back into fashion.
If you are new to group fitness, here are some things to help you through your first few classes until you get into the swing of it.
- To start your workout, choose classes that are for beginners and work your way up to the more advanced classes.
- Don't get embarrassed if you can’t get the arms and legs moving in the right direction at the same time. Just do the legs to start, and once you’ve got those down-pat, add in the arms.
- If you're finding it too fast – just do every second movement, when you've mastered it, go back to full pace.
- Remember, everyone was a beginner once, so don’t be too hard on yourself.
- Try classes where you can control the effort and intensity where the movements are simple - like Pump and Cycling
- Ask questions. If you are unsure, there are probably other people with the same question.
- Let the fitness instructor know that you are new so that they can offer extra assistance.
- Try a few different classes before deciding what will feature in your regular schedule.
The great thing about group fitness, apart from the huge variety of classes, is that the other participants will help motivate you. So if you’re having trouble getting motivated, group fitness is a great solution.
