Abbeycroft Leisure exercise classes are a fantastic way to get active and improve your fitness levels! Not only do we provide a structured workout environment, but we also offer you an opportunity to socialise and meet new people who share similar health goals. However, with so many different types of exercise classes available, it can be overwhelming to find the right one for you! Fortunately, in this blog we’ll go through a few tips to help you pick the perfect exercise class for your needs.
Consider your fitness level
Before choosing an exercise class, it’s important to consider your current fitness level. All of our classes are accessible to anyone, but if you’re new to exercise or haven’t worked out in a while, you may want to start with one of our beginner-friendly class such as yoga or Pilates. If you’re more experienced, you may want to try a more challenging class such as high-intensity interval training (HIIT) or RPM.
Set your goals
It’s also essential to set goals before choosing an exercise class, to make sure that you’re getting something out of the class. For example, if your goal is to lose weight, you may want to consider classes that focus on cardio such as spinning or aerobics. If your goal is to build strength, you may want to try a class that focuses on weight training such as Body Pump.
Look at the schedule
When choosing an exercise class, it’s important to look at the schedule to ensure that it fits into your daily routine. Consider the time of day that the class is held and how long the class runs for. It’s also important to consider the location of the class and how long it takes to get there. If you’re having to make large adjustments to your schedule, then the class won’t be sustainable for you in the long run. If you’re able to find a few classes that you like, then consider swapping between them- This will increase your session availability ten-fold!
Consider your preferences
It’s important to choose an exercise class that you enjoy and look forward to attending. If you hate running, a running class is probably not the best option for you. Instead, consider classes that align with your interests and preferences such as dance, yoga, or martial arts.
Try a variety of classes
Finally, it’s essential to try a variety of classes to find the one that works best for you. We offer a free day pass if you’re looking to try out our facilities.

Choosing the right exercise class requires careful consideration of your fitness level, goals, schedule, preferences, and willingness to try new things. By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to finding the perfect exercise class for your needs and achieving your fitness goals. Remember, consistency is key, and finding a class that you enjoy can make all the difference in sticking to a regular exercise routine.
