Whether your gym currently offers classes or is considering it, here are several trending fitness classes to consider adding.
Boxing is a great workout class that not only teaches people fighting skills, but many enjoy because it’s a high-intensity workout! You can burn as much as 500 calories in a 45-minute boxing workout. People love boxing classes in a group setting as well because they don’t feel like they’re going into it alone. With boxing gyms such as Title Boxing and the UFC Gym popping up everywhere, there’s plenty of people seeking out boxing training classes.
Although cross-training can mean a variety of things, in this sense it means combining more than one fitness type into one class! For example, holding a class that is “Yoga X Cycle” which mixes things up. This way, you can get more types of people into your studio. Some people tend to only attend yoga sessions, and the same goes for cycle classes, which are huge in popularity. If your gym doesn’t have this capability, perhaps if you own a cycle studio you can invite a yoga instructor to teach the yoga part of your class or vise versa. This mixed training option is a phenomenal workout option that optimizes two popular fitness trends. You’ll be sure to see a full class if you offer cross-training to your members!
TRX or “total resistance exercise system”, is a specialized form of suspension training. It uses a system of ropes with bodyweight exercises that are aimed at developing body muscles and strength, agility, and body stability. The TRX system can work all major muscle groups such as chest, arms, legs, and shoulders. TRX training is also great in a group setting because beginners won’t know how to complete some of the workouts because they are different from traditional weight training or even resistance bands. The full-body workout TRX training provides could be a great option for your gym to offer to clients.
