What is it?
Group fitness classes are an instructor led exercise session for two or more people, often involving music and equipment.
Group fitness has many activities that fall into it, all of which can be put into one of nine categories; dance, dance fitness, cardio, strength & conditioning, holistic (think stretching, strengthening, mindfulness and meditation) water workouts and multi-fitness (a combination of two or more categories together).
Why is it good for me?
Group fitness classes are a great way to get active with a group of like-minded people. Benefits will depend on the class you choose, but if you’re getting puffed out, it’s improving your cardiovascular health, if you’re lifting something, it’s improving your strength, and if you’re leaving the class feeling positive, it’s good for your mental health.
How much does it cost?
Class fees usually start from £5, prices will vary depending on the style taught as well the location and specialism of the class.
