Boost Your Mood and Fitness With a Class
By Brandi Goodman
Exercise releases endorphins. This can improve your mood and help you feel more calm and relaxed. You'll of course improve your fitness level as well. The more you work out, the stronger your body will become. Try a fun fitness class in your area and you'll be boosting your mood and fitness in a unique way.
Evolved Body Studio in Gold River offers Pilates classes. Pilates is similar to yoga but it focuses more on strengthening the muscles rather than simply improving joint flexibility. Located on Coloma Road, the studio offers both a private and semi-private package. You can either learn alone alongside your instructor or try it with a friend.
BODYPUMP will have your whole body pumped up and stronger than ever. You'll be using weights to tone and shape your body. 24 Hour Fitness or the Sunrise Sport Gym located on Sunrise Boulevard offers this class. If improving your strength or looking good in that new outfit is your goal, then this class is for you.
Cycle Boot Camp
Indoor cycling is a common option, but Cycle Boot Camp offered by 24 Hour Fitness takes it up a notch. You'll be riding to a maximum burn due to the intense drills and resistance training the class entails. The class is a full 60 minutes that will leave you dripping with sweat by the end of it. You can try a basic cycling class if this sounds too intense for you.
Become a member at the Gold River Sports Club and you'll have access to a variety of classes and fitness offerings. Step Blitz is one such class. This step class has you doing a real cardio workout due to the intense choreography that proves more challenging than most step options. You'll boost your cardio and strength in this 30-minute calorie-blasting class.
Take it really slow and join the Yin Yoga class offered at Gold River Sports Club. This class will have you focusing on your deep breathing and learning to hold and maintain a pose for longer intervals. Improving joint flexibility and enhancing your circulation are the goals.
Try one or more of these classes and see if you can find a new favorite activity to enjoy. Your mood and well-being will both be enhanced because of it -- all while improving your level of fitness as well.
