Thank you XShadySide TRX training for giving one of my readers a gift card for 25.00 to amazon.  Read at the bottom of the post how you can join in.  I will be picking a winner April 1st. !!!

Congrats Madison!!  You name was picked as winner this morning!!  You will be contacted super soon with your gift card.  

I love group fitness.

Here are my Top 3 for reason’s that group fitness works!

1.  YOU will be challenged and you will want to push yourself to the next level.

In BodyPump the stronger you get the more weight you want to lift. This class along with others does not take long to see results there for you will want to stick with it because you are seeing results.  Results make us thrive

2. Group fitness is FUN!

You are more likely got stick to something that is fun!!

3. Group fitness helps you stay accountable.

Think about how it feels when your trying to motivate yourself to get to the gym.  Sometimes since your not meeting other people there it’s easier to say oh forget it I will go tomorrow.  With group fitness you are going to see people that care if your there.  Every time I have gone days without going I get a text or 2 saying where were you we missed you.  It really does help with the accountability factor.  I have even had instructors ask me why I haven’t been to class.

******In order to get signed into the drawing for the 25.00 gift card you must leave a comment about why you like group fitness.  If you don’t workout at a group fitness facility write something that would make you want to change from gym to group fitness.  

Thanks again  TRX training of Pittsburgh  for giving my readers a chance to win the gift card to amazon.  Please make sure you leave your e-mail so when I pick a winner I can notify you.

  1. Saw this on pinterest. I LOVE pilates the best but take all kinds of classes

  2. Makenzie Stevens says:

    I would have to say TRX training has gotten me in my best shape ever at a group fitness in CA. I love all group fitness but when I started seeing shape from the TRX I was hooked. So excited about this giveaway.

  3. Kayla Sein says:

    I am a gym buff. The only reason why I can’t go over to group fitness is because of my work hours. It would just very work for me or I would do it. Has always sounded so fun to me.

  4. I really enjoy group classes. I think its more motivating

  5. Margaret Cano says:

    We have a xshady less then 5 miles away. I will go check it out. It’s always caught my eye but I have never stopped in. I have a gym membership that I have not used in yrs. My sweet husband keeps paying the fee and I am not being true to that membership wasting our money and it would be neat to start classes and see how far that takes me.

    I have read so much on TRX I think I am going to give that a try first. Your person journey is very inspiring. I think the accountability that you have talked about would good be really for me as working out is and always has been at the bottom of the list.

  6. Antonio Lozano, says:

    I am always up for a giveaway esp to amazon.
    I am a group fitness instructor. I teach Body Combat and I also teach Zumba. I know your thinking a guy teaching Zumba?? We do exist.

    I actually love being the only male instructor. I teach at 2 different studios.

  7. Shelia Briggs says:

    So I am not a big group workout as in live but I do all the jillian videos. I just can’t afford studio prices and all though I would love to take classes raising 5 kids is just to much to put a lot of money out.

  8. Lexi Burbank says:

    I need to give group fitness a try. I have 2 friends that go to XShady Side and love it. I would have to say Kellie is addicted to their classes. But she is in such good shape I can’t see how that is a bad thing. We are all good friends so I am sure eventually I will join.

  9. Toni Golovin says:

    Our studio’s where I live are over priced but I finally found a studio in a big old wear house prices are dirt cheap and they offer all the best of the classes that other studios offer. I love being back to group fitness

It’s come so far and it does so well because of the connections that are made and the accountability that it bring. Try it if you haven’t ever done it. YOU will love it and you will become a fan like I am. You have to do it to understand what we are all talking about.

Such fun and I lost a total of 32 pounds in just under 6 months and have kept it off ever since.

  21. I never end up pushing myself as hard when I work out alone as I do when I take a group class. The energy from other people and the instructor is always a motivating factor to work harder.

  23. I take yoga for stress reduction. I have become somewhat addicted.
