If you search google or Bing for “Fitness Classes Near me” or “Fitness Classes Athens GA” you will get a whole slew of results. It can be hard to make a decision on the best the best fit for you. Is it Yoga, Crossfit, Boot Camp, Body Pump, Barre Class, MMA or Kickboxing? The options are endless and can leave you uninspired and unmotivated trying to decide what might be best.
It’s very important to have variety in your workout routine. If all you do is go to the gym and run on the treadmill or just lift weights, you are slowing down your results and setting yourself up to hit a plateau very quickly. Almost every guy wants to do nothing but lift heavier and heavier weights; while many women get caught in the habit of logging more and more time on various cardio machines. Both pathways are not going to get you long term, sustainable and lasting results. We have all seen the guy that can lift crazy amounts of weight and has had slipped disks from heavy Deadlifts, torn rotator cuffs from heavy Benching and bad knees from heavy Squats. Of course proper form can go a long way in preventing some of these issues. However, without a qualified coach or trainer with you during the majority of your workouts, or exercising extreme vigilance on your part (along with a little good luck) you are running a chance of having some serious setbacks.
Many people also lack the drive to get through a workout that is truly challenging enough to give them the body and health they desire on their own. A great way to overcome this is with a Personal Trainer, but often times this can be a very expensive endeavor that may not even be worth the cost invested. Group Fitness Classes can be a great way to get encouraged and stay motivated for a fraction of what it would cost to hire a Personal Trainer. Unfortunately, in many classes you get lost in the crowd, no one knows your name (or cares) and the instructor may not encourage you to modify exercises or make adjustments for your body type, current fitness level or possible pre-existing conditions or injuries.
