It’s tough
to stay in shape. As college students, we are committed to our education and
clubs, and we want to spare some time for fun too.  Even when we find the spare minutes to fit in
some physical activity, it’s incredibly easy to come up with any excuse not to
work out. It’s cold, it’s early, it’s
raining, my knee hurts
… Well, you know. The list goes on. But what if your
workout was actually fun, and you were surrounded by your friends the whole
time? That’s one reason why group fitness classes are superbly beneficial in
helping busy people stay in shape.

Group
fitness classes are generally held at gyms and led by well-trained professionals.
They’re scheduled conveniently early in the morning, during the day or after
dinner. Other benefits of group fitness classes include encouragement from
friends, adherence to a routine (classes are generally at the same time each
week), and the fact that you’re getting guidance and a well-rounded workout
from a fitness professional. There’s no denying the good qualities of working
out in a class. Check out all the classes available to you at the Hamel Rec Center  for free as a UNH student. And even if you
can’t make it to a group fitness class, exercising with a partner has many of
the same benefits to making you more motivated!
