12 Fitness Summer Bucket List Ideas

Posted by Carly Ciambriello on July 11, 2019


Summer 2019 is here! The sun is shining, the beach may be calling, but we are NOT letting the good weather distract us from staying on track with our workouts! Why not try something new at The Edge Fitness Clubs?  We've compiled 12 items to check off your summer bucket list that may push you outside your comfort zone, get you in a new mindset and help you see results!

  1. Take a Les Mills BODYPUMP™ Class.  Ever heard of the rep effect? This class is no joke. BODYPUMP™ by Les Mills is for every fitness level and is designed to be a total body workout for men & women. High repetition with light to moderate weights, will create lean and toned muscles. Each song targets a different body part, and we move to the music!  If you never tried this class, it may be the extra push you workout routine has been missing.
  2. Wear Edge Gear to a Workout.  Nothing feels better than a new outfit during your workout. Tanks, tees, crops and more- Edge Gear is wear all our #FitFam are shopping for apparel this summer.  Represent the BEST. GYM. EVER. 
  3. Take a Session or Fitness Assessment with a Personal Trainer.  Did you know you get a complimentary fitness assessment when you join? The Edge takes pride in changing and inspiring the lives of our members, and working with a personal trainer can help push you past your plateaus, give you the nutrition guidance you need, and determine the best path to a better you.

  4. Bring a Friend in for a Workout. Working out with others has been proven to boost confidence, hold you more accountable, give you extra drive to push yourself and achieve results more quickly than if you were alone. Surround yourself with fitness-minded people! Friends who workout together stay together, and that positivity is contagious!
  5. Take a Zumba® Class.  Everything is better when you DANCE. This energy filled, calorie burning workout brings the nightclub to you! The exciting simple dance routines done to Latin and International music will have you moving and grooving to a sexier shape!   This workout is disguised as a dance party ... inside of The Edge! Zumba® is a combination of interval-style high and low intensity moves that will get your body moving and your heart pumping.  Improve cardiovascular health, muscle conditioning, better balance and flexibility.
  6. Drink a Shake from the Edge Cafe.  Best. Meal Replacement. Ever. With over 15 flavors to choose from, our protein shakes at the Edge Cafe are packed with up to 59g of protein in a 20oz shake! Fuel up with this delicious-ness after your next workout. 
  7. Get an InBody Scan.  Let's establish your starting point! What does your weight really represent? When you step on a scale, you can’t see how much muscle or fat you have. All you see is how heavy you weigh. At your complimentary fitness assessment, your Edge personal trainer will take you through a 30 minute workout, and a 30 minute body transformation plan, which includes the InBody test.  The InBody test is a non-invasive body composition analysis that provides a detailed breakdown of your weight in terms of muscle, fat, and water. It's a quick and easy way to see where you stand, and help you and your trainer identify next steps to get you in the best shape ever!
  8. Workout Outside. Time to enjoy the fresh air. From Zumba in the parking lot, to Yoga in the sand, to maybe your trainer dragging you outside for a lap around the building, The Edge offers plenty of opportunities to GET OUTSIDE and smell the sweaty roses. 
  9. Take an Edge Strong Class. Accountability + teamwork = guaranteed results. Edge Strong Team Training classes are led by Edge Personal Trainers and are interval/circuit based to get your heart pumping, energy high and ultimately give you the extra push to achieve your best results.

  10. Watch a Movie in the Edge Cinema.  Ready for big results in front of the big screen?! Ellipticals, treadmills and bikes are available for use in our Edge Cinema. You may even forget you've been working out! Ditch the popcorn and come SWEAT while watching A Star is Born (or maybe cry!). 
  11. Run a 5k.  Ready to find your competitive Edge (literally)? With the warm weather comes more outdoor workouts, and running a 3.5 mile race sounds like FUN! Track your time, and test your speed, strength and endurance. You may become a future runner!
  12. Take a Spinning® Class.  Life is a highway- let's ride at The Edge Fitness Clubs all summer long! Spinning® classes focus on endurance, strength, intervals and high intensity workouts using various levels of bike tension and cadence. Spinning® is a great way to burn calories and focus on strengthening your core muscles. This ride is for all fitness levels and will take you to your fitness goals.
