I have never done this before — can I be successful?
Everyone can be successful in group fitness room. These classes are created so that everyone can complete them safely and effectively. Our instructors are trained to provide options — both higher and lower intensity — for the moves in each class. This means that whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, there will be an option for you — an option that will enable you to get results and be safe. As you become acclimated to the class, you can start to choose higher intensity options that will allow you to progress to higher levels of fitness. You will be successful from the start.
How fit do I need to be?
Most of our programs are for everyone with moderate fitness levels. Because the moves are simple, you do not need to be especially coordinated. For our spinning you control your own resistance and intensity of the workout. This allows all participants – from the newcomer to the elite athlete – to train together. Additionally, our instructors are trained to provide options for class moves/exercises so that participants at every skill level can complete each step of our group fitness classes.
How coordinated do I need to be?
Most of our classes are designed with simple moves – you will learn a move and then build upon it. This allows time for you to learn each move. In addition, similar moves are often repeated from one class to the next, so after a few classes, you will begin to feel more familiar with the exercises and routines.
When will I notice results?
It usually takes about 3 to 5 classes to begin to understand the feel and structure of our classes and the moves. You may experience some muscle soreness at first, but this will quickly pass and will be followed by noticeable gains in strength, endurance, tone, flexibility, fat loss and balance – depending on the classes that you take. If you commit to a regular regimen (3 to 5 classes per week depending on the class), you should see positive fitness and health results in 4 to 6 weeks.
How often should I take classes?
All membership classes are unlimited and you can take as many as you want, however you will typically get better results with a day of rest between classes and/or cross-training.
