So you want to lose weight, get in shape and improve your physical health, but you absolutely detest going to the gym. Believe it or not, we have all been there — even the most acclaimed athletes have experienced not wanting to go to the gym. Thankfully there are numerous fitness classes that change things up and inspire new interests in those that both love and hate working out. Unlike one-on-one training and running through a routine on your own, fitness classes involve groups of people, so that you can learn and get inspired by other people with goals similar to yours.

We have incorporated over eighty-five different group classes with state-of-the-art equipment and instructors who excel, not only at teaching multiple people techniques of the trade, but also at following through with individualized attention. You can take classes like hot yoga in Hainesport, NJ, and have fun trying out new fitness activities, while getting to meet others looking to have fun and live healthier lives.

  1. Zumba: For those of you who are looking to help out your heart and burn some serious calories, Zumba could be a great option.

Its health benefits include:

Aerial Yoga: If you’ve always admired the aerial displays of acrobats at shows and wanted to give it a try, or you currently practice yoga and need a way of deepening and advancing your floor practice, then aerial yoga might give your workout routine a bit of a lift. At Future Fitness Centers, we offer free VaihAyasa Aerial Yoga classes. Using a soft fabric hammock (that can support up to a thousand pounds), your body is supported as you move through different traditional and non-traditional yoga poses. The hammock allows you to achieve postures that you normally wouldn’t be able to do on a mat. The benefits of VaihAyasa Aerial Yoga are:

  • Deeper stretches
  • Strength

  1. Ballet Barre: Combining postures from ballet, yoga and Pilates, this class focuses on isometric strength training (the ability to hold your body still while contracting specific muscles or sets of muscles) at high repetitions to burn calories and give you long, lean muscle tone. This class’s benefits include:Increased flexibility
  • Muscle targeted strength gain
