"I’ve learned how important it is to push yourself out of your comfort zone! Cycle classes really used to intimidate me. I took one about 15 years ago and never tried it again. That is until now! In the past year, I’ve come to love cycle. I never leave a class where I don’t feel accomplished. I can see and feel the changes my body has made since starting cycle last winter. My family has commented on how crazy they think I am for getting up at 7am on a Saturday to cycle. For me, it’s the perfect start to my day and weekend!" - Laura W.
Having the ability to do exercise that I enjoy! I love that HG has so many different styles of classes. From U-Jam Fitness, to barre, to yoga, to cycle and beyond. I can always find a class that works with my schedule and workout style. HG has amazing instructors and is built of a wonderful community of members. I never leave a workout that doesn’t make me feel great!
Being a mom of two boys and employed full time, I don’t often have time to myself. I’m a nurse and fertility coach, and my day to day life is about taking care of others. Working out at HG allows me to have that one hour each day that is dedicated to ME and no one else. Classes have been great for stress relief. I also just physically feel so much better! Weight loss has never been the goal for me. But strength, toning and overall health are something I’ve always strived for. I’m 34, almost 35, and feeling better than I ever have!
The community!!! I’m a very shy/introverted individual. Making friends and getting out of my comfort zone has never been easy for me. HG allows me to come to class and be surrounded by like-minded women and men. I don’t feel judged when working out. I can come to class, no make-up, and just sweat!
Without a doubt, U-Jam is my favorite class! As a former dancer, I’ve struggled to find adult dance classes that provide me the outlet I’ve always loved. U-Jam gives me that opportunity. I’ve always thrived with workouts where I don’t feel like I’m working out. At U-Jam, I don’t ever feel like I’m working out. And yet, I get the BEST workout from it. My heartrate is up, I sweat, and I have SO MUCH FUN! It’s no joke when I say that U-Jam is my weekly therapy!
I’ve also really come to love cycle classes, which is never something I thought I’d say. Similar to U-Jam, I love how the music gets my heart pumping and my energy up! Barre & Cario Yoga are also favorites of mine!
Schedule your classes ahead of time and make it a part of your daily routine. Scheduling classes ahead of time holds me accountable. I attend four classes a week at HG. Seeing them on my calendar gets me excited.
Lastly, this is my rallying cry to my fellow members to come join me at a U-Jam class. If you’ve been thinking about coming in the past, but haven’t made the leap, now is the time! We are such a fun group of people and I promise you won’t leave class without a smile. There is ZERO dance experience required. Are your workouts motivated by getting MEPs? U-Jam is a great way to make that happen! Hope to see you there!
