Perks of Group Fitness

Have you ever thought... I would start working out if I could just find a workout buddy.

If so, you are not alone. That's why there is a section on Craigslist dedicated specifically to 'Activity Partners'. Working out can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be boring and lonely. Group fitness classes are the perfect solution. Here are a few reasons why group fitness classes are beneficial:

Motivation: A little encouragement from an instructor or fellow classmate and positive atmosphere can help you keep up your level of workout intensity.

Competition: Healthy competition helps most people deliver their best effort. Challenging a workout buddy can help you both do more than you would have done on your own. Example, Let's both master our superman today!

Community: Enduring a challenging workout together is a great way to develop new friendships.

Accountability: When you’re part of an exercise group, others will know when you miss a workout. You’ll be less likely to skip a group class when others are counting on you.

Structure: An instructor led workout is more likely to be a well planned, complete workout. On your own you might be tempted to skip exercises you don’t like or aren’t sure how to perform correctly.

Fun: A good group exercise class will encourage a sense of play. If you’re smiling and sweating at the same time your intensity will be higher and you’ll realize better results.

The Urban Pole Contest

If you haven't already heard... we're having an Urban Pole Contest!

What is an Urban Pole Contest you ask?
It's a super fun photo contest where you get to take pictures posing with "poles" around town. Perhaps a 'no parking' sign, a utility pole, a bike rack, an Elvis statue... the possibilities are endless.

No pole dancing experience necessary. Just give it your best sassy pole pose and snap a picture. Then upload that picture to the Urban Studio facebook page aka www.facebook.com/UrbanStudioLLC

The best picture will be announced November 18th and the winner will win a FREE 3 MONTH MEMBERSHIP to Urban Studio! That is three months of unlimited pole, chair and flirty fitness classes!

Need inspiration? Check out this hilarious video on street poling in Montreal:
