Get Started on a New You in AFF Group Fitness

By Kate Rezabek, M.Ed., Director of Group Fitness

Let’s get real for a moment – really real. The truth is, staying committed to a health and wellness routine can be daunting. Fear, anxiety, dwindling motivation – all the feels, right? Many of us wake up 100% ready to slay the new year on day 1, and then just weeks, days, or maybe even hours into our new fitness routines, we lose our steam. It happens to the best of us, and it’s totally normal. The good news is, we’ve got everything you need to stay on track. Check that one off your list! If you want some expert advice to help you hang with to your health and wellness plan this year, you only need to make one move: commit to Group Fitness at American Family Fitness. It’s where the stick-to-it factor kicks in, and you won’t want to miss out.


Here’s the thing: we have everything you need to be successful, so how you use each resource and tackle 2019 is totally up to you. Let’s take a look at five key things about our Group Fitness classes that will help you keep sweating, moving, shedding pounds (hey there, skinny jeans!), and sticking to your new fitness routine this year.


1. Motivation

If variety is the spice of life, we’ve got you covered! Barre, Group Cycling, Strength Training, Yoga, Pilates, HIIT training, and more are all included with your membership. The cutting-edge music in each class will move you, and you’ll never get tired of doing the same thing over and over (goodbye treadmill; hello commitment!). You can balance your training to meet your needs and interests with hundreds of classes to choose from each week. Don’t forget – we have 9 locations and endless programs to check out, so you’ll never be stuck in a rut doing the same old thing.


2. Accountability

Whether you’re checking in with our top-notch certified Group Fitness Instructors for advice or a casual post-workout selfie (those are fun, y’all! – #amfamfit), or making friends with the warm and welcoming crew of fantastic members, the people at AFF will keep you coming back for more. Don’t worry if you don’t know anyone the first time you step into the studio – we all want to meet you and become your #1 fans. Working out with friends is way more energizing than trying to stick with it on your own, so introduce yourself and we’ll insert the accountability from there.


3. Smart Training

In order to deliver the best possible experience for you, we partner with industry-leading programming organizations to make sure our classes truly soar beyond your greatest expectations. There’s science behind all that we do, so it’s smart for you and your body. We may be serious when it comes to strategizing your workout, but we’ll always balance it out with a whole lot of fun and a little swagger too. We’ll help you get stronger, leaner, faster, and truly reach the best version of you in 2019 as we innovate, accelerate, and teach you how to stay healthy, active, mobile, and strong for years to come.


4.  Customization 

It’s all about you, and you’re in the driver’s seat. No one person needs the exact same blend of classes, movements, programs, or music, so we give you the freedom to pick and choose what works for you. How you craft your best plan it is in your hands, and the good news is – you can’t go wrong! We’ll give you the freedom to make it your own while we show high and low options for all fitness levels, whether you want to lift, step, dance, ride, or stretch your way to a new you. We want you to try it all and find your best mix of classes for the well-rounded fitness routine you crave. Wondering where to start? Arrive a few minutes early to class to meet the Instructor, and try something like POWER, ACTIVE, Yoga Basics, Zumba, Cycle, or Coach by Color45 (in select locations). These are all great choices for first-time participants, or those looking to get back into a long-lost fitness groove


5.  Fun 

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – Group Fitness brings the fun-factor and keeps you engaged. People are the power in all that we do, and we have some pretty fantastic participants and Instructors who bring the heat and the help to each class we offer. Be a part of the welcoming community of friends and neighbors who want to meet you and support you on your journey through fitness. American Family Fitness is more than a gym; it’s home to so many of us who love seeing smiling, sweating, happy faces on the move each day. Trust us on this one: you don’t want to miss the party and companionship you’ll find in our studios. Just promise us one thing: you won’t wait until tomorrow. Your new you begins today!
