You walk into the gym, you have your workout clothes with you and you are motivated. This is it! You’re going to get in shape, but when you sign up and start looking at the schedule of classes, that is where confidence fades just a little. How are you supposed to choose which class or classes to take? Do you need a low-impact or are you ready for high impact? Can somebody even tell you what the difference is between the two of them? The choices are endless.

What is Your Fitness Level?

You might be asking yourself why this matters, but whether you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or it could be you are training for marathon, are all vitally important pieces of information. If you have not worked out in a year and you walk in and see a spinning class that looks like a great deal of fun and go in and hop on a bike, and then tomorrow morning you try to get out of bed and your legs say “No Way!” and you are unable to work out for the next four days, that was a waste. There are classes that are set up for various skill levels for a reason. Once you find a class that you can keep up the pace with that is the class for you.

What are You Hoping to Accomplish?

Once you decided which are fitness goals are, it will also help you decide what type of classes you want to be taking. Are you trying to tone up, you should try a strengths class? If you’re looking for a cardio workout, you might love aerobics. Yoga classes are great for flexibility. Never be afraid of asking questions for trying something new. If you don’t like something or it isn’t working for you, try something else. If you are looking for fitness classes in Elburn, try the Fuse Gym. They have something for everyone in all skill levels.
