Stay Fit During the Holidays With Classes
By Brandi Goodman
Fitness falls to the wayside for many during the holidays. Rather than let your workouts become non-existent, try out a class at a local gym for a way to stay fit. You'll be able to pick out an option that works best for you with all of the choices available.
Not many people head to the beach during the winter months when the water is cold. You can find a pool available at many gyms though, giving you the option for a great workout. Water is an ideal location for a workout because it's far easier on the joints than being on land. You get natural resistance from the water and don't need weights to help tone your body. Water aerobics is a great class option for the winter for these reasons. The classes may not all be referred to as aerobics. You may see names like Swimfit, Aqua Fit, and Water Works depending on the gym and what's all included.
You may feel high stress during the holidays with all you have to accomplish. Take a yoga class that focuses on breathing, slow movements, and stretching out the body. A class like this can help you to feel relaxed and give you the time and tools you need to unwind. Yoga is great for enhancing mind-body awareness that can help you to feel relaxed and yet energized at the same time.
Zumba has become extremely popular over the last several years. This fast-paced option incorporates dancing and exercise. If you want to work up a sweat while toning your body, enhancing your strength and stamina, and improving your mood, then Zumba may be the right option for you.
60-Minute Fitness Class
You can also choose a full 60 minute fitness class that doesn't just offer one thing. At Orangetheory Fitness, for example, the instructor will take you through the gym and teach you how to use the equipment. You may use the cardio, rowing, or strength training stations. The class will be followed by a cooldown stretch and you can even get a summary of your results based on the fitness band they give you to wear.
Stay fit during the holidays with fitness classes. There's plenty available from local gyms, such as Orangetheory Fitness, World Gym, and Fitness 54. Check them out or find another location nearby and you'll have a collection of classes to choose from.
