You miss 100% of the chances you don't take. This holds true to the grander scheme of life, but also for fitness. Why you may ask? Because you can't burn calories, you can't gain muscle, and you can't stay healthy if you don't show up. Finding a fitness partner who can encourage you to commit to working out is a great way to maintain momentum. By supporting each other, reaching a fitness goal can feel like a team sport even if you all have different desired results. You may be in a class of 15 people, all who are there for something different (to make friends, lose 5 pounds, gain muscle, build flexibility, or to get out of the house). But you all embark on the class together--that's the fun part! This is why research has proven that people who work out in groups become more motivated and push harder than other programs.
One of our 3 tiers of success here at SHARC is our group fitness programs
. Not only do we offer our members a variety of classes that target all different "personalities" but the programs can speak for themselves. While you can pay top dollar for a fitness club membership that provides you with a whirlwind of classes, we provide the same thing at SHARC, with no additional fee. Plus, our group instructors are some of the leading fitness experts. You wouldn't want a magician to teach a doctor how to perform surgery, would you? This is why while you're breaking a sweat, laughing, and getting competitive with friends with top-of-the-line instructors. This is included in the SHARC membership! OR you can also sign up for the same classes taught by our same instructors at a private studio for a steep price…
The best part about group fitness is the opportunity to spice things up and try something new. Are you looking for an upbeat program that has changed the lives of millions and is used in 14,000 clubs across 80 countries? We have it right here at SHARC!
