A Very Merry UNbirthday to you! (Granted, if today happens to be your actual birthday, then, of course, congratulations!) However, if you’re like the rest of us today, then a very merry UNbirthday to you! There’s something to be said about UNbirthdays, UNschooling and what we are coining, “UNgyms.” It’s time to redefine your workout routine with an UNgym that celebrates you – not the other way around!
At Inspired Fitness, we do things differently. We know that healthy lifestyles come from coupling both consistency and genuine desire. But, how does someone stay motivated to return to something when it’s bound to get boring if there isn’t variety? Habits have to stay on track to weather the storms of indifference, but a study at the University of Florida found that performing the same exercises repetitiously increases your chances of giving up.
We are creatures that desire both consistency and variety. While these may seem counter-intuitive IF works with its members to offer a balance of both. This maximizes motivation while also delivering enough diversity to match desires for something new.
Chances are you hear the word “gym” and it conjures up a vague sound of fitness equipment clanking, burly men grunting and a faint smell of O’ De Locker room. This accompanied with side glances that prompt “gymtimidation” (you know, where you feel very insecure about yourself and feel slightly threatened by others in the gym who are in better physical condition or seem to have a stronger, working knowledge of the equipment than you do.)
Perhaps not you, but many of us can relate. Fortunately, at Inspired Fitness, we’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt and have created something better. Something UNlike any other gym you’ve been to. Here we list the top 4 reasons Inspired Fitness is exactly what you’re looking for in an “UNgym”.
Avoid the heavy weights (both the bars and the beefcakes) and show up for a variety of fun classes, alongside a small group of peers. All while getting actual feedback throughout your class from certified group fitness instructors.
One of the most commonly cited reasons people choose to attend group fitness classes is because of the fun factor. Inspired Fitness puts the UN in F-U-N, because we focus on what makes a workout routine great. Get this. It isn’t pain that gets the gain. It’s persistence. And what better way to get you to stay atop your healthy lifestyle goals than with compelling classes that evolve with you over time in a safe and smaller setting?
Guess what today’s class is offering? Here at IF, we know that keeping things fresh is undoubtedly key to forming healthy habits. A quick glance at our general calendar will prepare you for the classes offered weekly. We rotate through dozens of different workout options. Keeping your workout routine UNpredictable offers your body chances to move in new ways, surpass performance plateaus and mixup muscle memory.
Repeating the same motions over and over again (think swimming, running, and weight-lifting exercises) often leads to overuse injuries. In order to truly challenge your body and also keep everything in balance, it’s important to move your joints and muscles through multiple planes.
You can toss the tedious activity of creating a workout routine for the week, month or year. Just show up and select a class that speaks to you. Stop in right before you start your daily grind and get in good spirits with like-minded peers headed into downtown Tucson first thing each weekday morning. How perfect is that? We redefine your workout for you!
Swing by after work with just your gym attire and let our instructors guide you through a relaxing or refreshing routine that works your muscles, not your mind. Put down the calculator and trust the calorie-burning to your qualified class lead.
Decompress and UNwind after a long day by simply dropping in post-profession. A truly healthy quality of life is all about committing to “fit-n-ess” time for yourself in your daily planner. (See what we did there?) Inspired Fitness makes it easy. Show up at your preferred class time, and each day you’ll have a new class that teaches you UNknown workouts that keep you on your toes.
The vibe here at Inspired Fitness is UNmatched. It isn’t about competition. It is about camaraderie and connecting with like-minded women. Rather than being taught to chase a smoking hot body, join a group of women who embrace all of their curves and choosing the various ways they wear them. Let’s be honest, we all carry our weight differently. There is no ideal frame for all of us as a whole. So, focus on your masterpiece and recognize that the only thing that needs ‘reframed’ is your workout routine.
So whaddayasay? What if workouts were fun and you could melt your stress away? What if your best friend is waiting for you at the next group fitness class? See you soon at Inspired Fitness, where the UNgym is just for you! Swing by for a quick tour or contact us for more info!
