We all know that we need to be exercising regularly in order to be fit and healthy, but sometimes it’s hard to find the time, or even know where to start. At HBF Arena our Group Fitness Classes are a fun and effective workout for everyone, from beginners to hard-core gym fanatics. Here are a few reasons why we think you should try one of our Group Fitness Classes.
Fun and social
Exercise should be fun, and not something that you dread or have to force yourself to do. After all, it’s something that we should all be incorporating into our lives daily, so it makes sense to try and make it enjoyable. Group Fitness Classes provide an energetic and motivating atmosphere, with classes often set to music and a supportive instructor encouraging you to push yourself just that little bit more.
The social aspect is also appealing to a lot of people. Make some new friends who regularly attend the class for some camaraderie and accountability, and maybe even a little bit of friendly competition.
You may find that the rush of endorphins an awesome a cycle class gives you is addictive, or that you love the relaxed zen feeling after a yoga class. Find something that appeals to you and give it a go!
Guided by professional instructor
Regular Personal Training sessions are great, but the cost can start to add up. In Group Fitness Classes you have all the benefits of a highly trained instructor at a fraction of the price. They will give you tips, guide you through the class, and check your form to ensure that you are getting the most out of the exercise and not at risk of injury. They will also gauge the abilities of the group and give options to pull it back or increase the intensity depending on how experienced you are.
There’s also a chance at the end to ask any questions about the workout or a specific exercise, with most Group Fitness instructors more than happy to answer any queries that you may have.
It’s easy to push exercise to the bottom of your priority list when you don't have the time specifically dedicated to it. Group Exercise Classes at HBF Arena run 7 days a week from early in the morning right through to the evening, so there’s always a class running that you can fit into your schedule. There are also options for shorter 30 minute classes alongside the more standard 1 hour sessions so there’s no excuse to not accommodate some time for exercise.
Lock in the time that you can make a class and commit to attending every week - it’s amazing how quickly something can become part of your regular routine, and before long you won't even consider not going! Even better if you have a friend to go with, as you can combine your workout with a catch-up and keep each other accountable.

Expertly designed workout
Each Group Fitness Class at HBF Arena has been carefully designed to give you maximum results in a way that is safe and effective. While there are a ton of different styles and approaches to working out, each claiming to be the best, participating in a class takes out all of the guess work and incorporates scientifically-backed techniques such as interval training and weights in ways that have been tested by professional trainers.
When training by yourself it can be easy to skip over the exercises that you find difficult or don't really know how to do, whereas when you are in a class situation you are guided through each move and taught proper technique. It also means that you will always be doing a proper warm-up, cool down and stretch which is important in order to avoid injury and minimise any muscle soreness the next day.
Try something new
If you have been doing the same old routine it may be time to branch out and try something new. If you don't mix up your training your body quickly adapts and you will stop seeing results, so it’s important to keep it fresh and incorporate new things in your program.
If you usually just stick to jogging on the treadmill you may like to try a Les Mills Bodycombat class, which incorporates high intensity interval training with mixed martial arts and lots of energy. Or work some different muscles (and give your joints a rest) at a Cycle class which gives you all the fitness and endurance training in a low-impact format. Let out your inner star at a fun and social SH’BAM dance class, or focus on your core strength at Pure Abs Express where you will tone, shape and strengthen your abdominals.
The key is to find something that you love, so we encourage you to try a new class even if it may be a little out of your comfort zone!
HBF Arena offer an extensive schedule of different Group Fitness Classes, all run by top-notch instructors and featuring workouts that are fun, challenging and effective. Commit to just a couple of classes a week, and you will reap the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle.
