how to pick the right fitness class

At Boost Fitness we are passionate about helping you crush your personal fitness goals. Determining your goals and being smart about them is the first step to a healthy lifestyle! Group fitness classes are an excellent way to help you get into a routine or change your workout routine. At Boost we have a wide variety of classes to choose from. If you are wondering how to pick the right fitness class for you, our advice is to let your goals be your guide! Here are a few of our members’ favorite classes, and some additional pointers about how they align with common fitness goals.

How to Pick the Right Fitness Class for Shedding a Few Pounds

If you are trying to lose weight we recommend working at least two cardio-based fitness classes into your weekly routine. Do you feel like you’re getting nowhere on the treadmill? Step up to the challenge by opting for a high-energy Group Blast class instead! This fast paced class will have you burning major calories while toning your lower body. Not to mention the killer playlist of some of today’s hottest hits.

Speaking of music, if you are a fan of dancing be sure to stop by a Boost Zumba class. Our Latin-inspired choreography will help you increase overall coordination and strengthen your heart and lungs. And the best part is– it’s fun! In fact, you’ll have so much fun in this cardio dance class that you will forget that you’re even working out.

Some Other Recommended Classes for Weight Loss:

  • Spin: Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced biker, spinning classes provide a low-impact, total body workout that’s both fun and challenging. You can burn as many as 600 calories per workout, and build up your strength and endurance over time.
  • Group Fight: More commonly known as kickboxing, Boost’s Group Fight classes tone your entire body through martial-arts style moves. If you’re pressed for time or are looking for a new workout to kick start weight loss, Group Fight classes are the answer. Not to mention that they’re a great way to help beat stress.

Tone it Up!

Whether you are looking to tone your body or are striving for a toned tummy, there’s a Boost class for you! Strength training classes are ideal for total body workouts. In one hour, our Group Power classes dedicate one song to each individual muscle group, including: biceps, triceps, core and more! Don’t forget to stretch after you’ve finished– your body will thank you.

If you are looking for a tight and toned core, give our Group Core class a shot. This 30-minute class will work wonders for your abdominal muscles, oblique’s and back. It’s an ideal class for the athlete who is looking to strengthen their core, or for the person who’s pressed for time and looking for an effective and efficient workout to add to their routine.

Stress Relief

Caught up in the nine to five and feeling the pressure? Fitness routines are a healthy way to break up your day and take some well deserved time for yourself. Our Group Centergy class will have you leaving the gym feeling focused and calm. The blend of Pilates, power yoga, and beautiful music will help you to strengthen and lengthen your entire body in a relaxed environment. Don’t take it from us– the benefits of yoga are vast, as stated by the team at Yoga Alliance:

“Cortisol is often used to measure the stress response. Yoga practice has been demonstrated to reduce the levels of cortisol. Most yoga classes end with savasana, a relaxation pose, which further reduces the experience of stress.”


Stress can have a negative impact on your personal and professional life, and can even prevent some people from achieving their weight loss goals. If you’re feeling like your stress is weighing you down, be proactive and take the first step towards inner peace by trying one of Boost’s Group Centergy classes.
