Are Fitness Classes Just for Chicks?

Subscribe to Alpha M. on YouTube
When Alpha says "aerobics class" do you think chicks? Do you think dudes don't do aerobics classes because you think they're just for women? Aaron Marino of alpha m. is taking moment to talk about fitness classes and group exercises facilities.

Doing the same exercises and workouts day in and day out can be monotonous. To shake things up and make exercise more exciting, men can throw aerobics classes into the mix.

  • Spin classes are no joke. Alpha can run 12-miles but an hour on the spin bike can wear him out!
  • Body pump is another option, which Alpha talks about his first experience at one of these classes. The results for him were amazing. He is continuing to take Saturday classes.

 

Alpha recommends switching out your workout and trying something new. With these classes you can control the intensity. The classes are great to incorporate into your weekly workout.
