Try Our Group Exercise Classes for Summer Weight Loss

Posted by The Edge Fitness Clubs on June 12, 2019

It’s time to get your summer bod ready! The weather is warming up and beach days, picnics, and family vacays are on the horizon.


Our group exercise classes are a great way to kick your weight-loss efforts into high gear. Going solo at the gym isn’t nearly as motivating—or as fun—as joining others in a high-energy group exercise class.

Here are a few reasons why group exercise is the best path to weight loss.

Highly motivating

Whether it’s shaking your hips in Zumba or lifting weights in Bodypump, working out with others is often the fuel you need to keep going. The instructor’s upbeat attitude and music will make that hour you spend sweating fly by faster than any amount of time spent on the treadmill. Start attending group exercise classes and you begin to build a camaraderie and friendship with other class goers too.

Avoid Boredom

Doing the same workout routine all the time quickly becomes boring and can leave you feeling uninspired. Trying new workouts can infuse you with energy and make you want to come back for more. We offer plenty of group exercise classes so you never feel like you’re stuck in a workout rut. Our group exercise class instructors incorporate new routines and workouts regularly so you can just show up and sweat!

Group Exercise ClassesPush You Further

Feeling fatigued? Don’t quit now. You’ll have personal cheerleaders in group exercise classes that can keep you going even when you want to stop. Seeing others push through exhaustion inspires you to do it too. Instructors and other class goers will challenge you in group classes, more than you would get on a solo workout.

A Better Workout

You’re more likely to get a better workout in a group exercise class than you will doing cardio machines or free weights alone. Group classes add variety to your exercise routine and work several muscle groups and body parts including core, quads, arms, glutes, and hamstrings.

Switching up your workouts helps you avoid reaching plateaus and boredom, both important factors when you’re trying to lose weight.

We offer several different group exercise classes at the EDGE. Whether you want to test your flexibility in Yoga, or race in a Spinning Class, we have a class for you. Try a group exercise class today and get on your way to being bikini ready!
