The Ultimate Personal Fitness Hack - Group Fitness Classes At A Local Gym
It's been proven - people who who join group fitness clubs near their house are more likely to find their goals.
In this blog post, we will explore 4 reasons why people get better results when they join a fitness clubs near where they live or work.
#1 Club Convenience Matters
It can be difficult to make a lifestyle change.
It takes time and effort, and it's easy to get discouraged when gym times don't work with your schedule or you find yourself missing workouts!
When something comes up (and it will!) you can easily adjust your schedule to make it work!
When it's easy to pop into the gym, you will find yourself having less excuses why you can't attend today's group fitness class.
#2 Having a Gym Near You Increases Accountability
Having a gym that is near you will increase your accountability... and let's be honest, your fitness goals are going to be all about accountability.
If your club is close by, then it's easier to attend classes or work out at a convenient time.
You will make more friends who will keep you accountable!
Accountability can lead to better fitness results because they drive us to work harder or push ourselves a little bit more.
Having gym buddies also increases your accountability - being accountable to someone else is one of the best ways to encourage you to actually use your membership more often!
#3 You Can Be More Flexible With Your Group Fitness Class Schedule
If your gym is close by, it's easier to pop in and out of the gym. This makes it more likely that you will go! You can easily make up for a missed workout or take part in an impromptu group fitness class because your gym is somewhere on the way to work or home!
Flexible Schedule: More Membership Use
A flexible gym schedule will give you more opportunities to make a fitness class. You don't need to worry about having your schedule set in stone.
Some clubs (like KS Athletic Club!) offer open gym which can allow for more access to the gym. This is perfect for people who have weird work schedules or young kids.
#4 You Can Join The Community With Similar Fitness Goals
Usually people judge gyms solely by the amenities - but the value of group fitness classes is the community.
Having personal bonds with the coaches, owners and the members of the gym are important!
Having a gym close by means that there are more opportunities for you to know gym members.
You can also participate in open gym or special events - this is perfect if you want to give group fitness classes a try before committing yourself!
