Group fitness classes have been a wonderful part of my college experience. I recommend them to everyone. They have been the best way to relieve stress. I’ve used them to be my motivation to get studying done in time to go to a certain class. They make me incredibly happy. Additionally, I have realized that each class has its own “spunk” and resemble different personality types.
1. Hip-Hop Shake: The Wild Child
This class gets down. You work your booty and some of the moves should probably be reserved for the bedroom. Time to twerk like you’ve never twerked before. Don’t show these moves off in front of your family or you’ll be too wild to receive an invite to the next gathering.
2. Zumba: Fun and Flawless
Everyone has at least one “fun friend.” They are always down for a good time, but it doesn’t have to be a crazy party; they’re just as down to go to a culture festival. They’re the go-to when anyone wants some positive old-fashioned fun. When you’re in the mood for something unique and fun to do, you see what they’re up to, but you could just go to Zumba and get the same satisfaction…and practice your salsa while you’re at it!
3. BodyPump: Strong Independent (Wo)man
Look at those muscles, holy hoot…someone’s been lifting! BodyPump is the super macho class that none of the other classes mess with. Watch out, because BodyPump is strong and independent and doesn’t need no other class.
4. Yoga: Environmentally Savvy
Something about yoga is just so earthy-crunchy. Even in the indoor fitness studio, yoga just makes one feel so in touch with their auras and nature. Sustainably good vibes all around.
5. Cycling: Fast and Furious
Got a need for speed? This class doesn’t stop so pedal to the medal! Keep those legs moving like you’re gonna be the first to the finish line.
6. Bootcamp: Army Commander Strict
“Jump you say? How high?” Get ready to work your tush off like this is basic training. Bootcamp says it all; no pain, no gain.
7. Pilates: Composed and Calm
“Wow, look at that perfect posture!” Master the stretches and breathing and say hi to the calm and nonchalant pal, Pilates.
Next time you go to group fitness, you'll realize your class isn't just a class; it has feelings and emotions just like you!
