Are Your Group Fitness Classes Inspiring Your Clients?
September 14, 2013 | by Katrina Cochrane

Maintaining a consistently dynamic fitness class is vital for keeping participants motivated and inspired. Pump up your routines and keep clients coming back with some of these simple ideas.

Mix up the Music

A great music playlist is all about motivating your participants, creating a fun environment, as well as it fitting in perfectly with the routine. But even the best playlist needs a shake-up now and then. Be sure to refresh your whole playlist every few weeks at a minimum.

Change Locations

If clients are keen and it's practical, try changing the scenery. Whether it's a day at the beach or the local park, or attending a running event together, working out in new surroundings will help clients get a new perspective on the class and their fitness, and reinvigorate energy levels.

Add some Accompaniments

Resistance bands, dumbbells, kettlebells, Swiss balls are all great ways to diversify your program. If you have access to this equipment at your gym or if you can purchase them cheaply adding that extra dimension to the class will be enough to add a whole new element to the class.

Keep it Moving

Avoid repetition by changing up the moves every few classes. While clients appreciate a certain sense of familiarity, new moves will keep them interested as well as challenging their fitness.

Extend your Training

Possibly the best way to keep your classes inspiring is to extend your own training. Taking up an extra course will broaden your own skill set and give you the flexibility to expand your fitness programs.
