Runners notoriously like to run and only run. We have a limited amount of time to work out, after all, and why not spend it doing our favorite form of exercise? A few years ago, I started taking a few group fitness classes a week and fell in love. In fact, I loved them so much that I became an instructor 18 months ago.
Group fitness classes are a great way to learn new exercises, cross-train, meet new people, and challenge yourself in a group setting. Because an instructor has already designed the workout for you, all you have to do is show up and follow along. They’re usually set to great music and you just might push yourself more than you would alone because there’s a room full of people encouraging you to work hard.
