New to Group Exercise? Try These Classes First!

Trying to get in shape can be a daunting task, especially if it's been a while since you've stepped foot in a gym or fitness center. One major issue for many people is the fear of embarrassment, as the last thing you want to do is step into a class that's far too difficult and end up leaving the class feeling worse about your level of health and fitness that you did before. Luckily, Royal Fitness offers a range of group exercises classes that are equally as fun and effective for beginners as they are for fitness pros.

Royal Fitness' group exercises classes are a great choice for anyone in the South Jersey area who's looking to improve their fitness level, and they allow you to achieve your goals in a fun, lively setting. These classes are also great for motivation, as few things can motivate as well as being surrounded by a room full of people striving towards similar goals. Read on to learn more about Royal Fitness classes for beginners!

The Best Group Exercise Classes for Beginners

When choosing a group exercise class, it's always a good idea to learn a bit more about what each class actually involves and what fitness level it is recommended for. Some of the classes typically recommended for beginners include:



Gentle Yoga


Aqua Classes


Sculpting LITE

All of these are popular options that should be easily accessible to both beginners and those with more experience. For example, while Bodypump can seem scary at first, every member of the Royal Fitness team is trained to spot new people, welcome them and explain the plan ahead of class. We encourage new users to start with little to no weight on their bar, and can help them gradually add more weight as they gain strength and master the movements.

If you're concerned about your level of fitness, avoid classes that are categorized as Intermediate or Advanced until you've got a bit more experience under your belt.

Why Choose Group Classes at Royal Fitness?

As one of South Jersey’s leading fitness centers, Royal Fitness has the facilities, skills and high-quality instructors you need to meet your goals in the most efficient, effective and enjoyable way. The group exercise classes at Royal Fitness are taught by experienced instructors, all of whom are fully skilled at working with people of every fitness level.

Preparing for Your First Exercise Class

Aside from wearing the right clothing and making sure you're hydrated for your first exercise class, there's little that you'll need to do to prepare for your class. You can tell the instructor that you’re new to their class, and they can assist you by providing encouragement and guiding you through each exercise. You can also check out what your nearby classmates are doing should you find yourself getting lost or struggling to replicate the exercises. Still, if you want to be fully prepared, it's not a bad idea to read up on your chosen type of class online, or better yet, to watch part of a class beforehand, as this will give you a better idea of what to expect and may ease any pre-class nervousness.
