As the daily work hours increase across the country people are finding it harder to fit in and justify time for exercise. Work is important but work can’t and won’t be efficient if you aren't happy and healthy. Being able to consolidate your workout into a fixed 1-hour window where you get the full gambit of training is what working professionals are tending to gravitate towards more and guess what, it’s working. Small group training programs are also on the rise as they bring camaraderie and accountability to the workout environment in addition to being more affordable than a personal trainer. Facilities that function off of these 1-hour, intense group workouts include CrossFit Gyms, Orange Theory Fitness, and other performance based studios or programs. More specifically, in Gainesville there have been a number of group training programs that have been around years such as Gainesville Health and Fitness’ Small Group Training classes, Go Primal Fitness and Training Institute, Body By Boris and several other CrossFit Facilities. Recently, we have had 3 new CrossFit gyms open, SweatLife has added boxing classes called SweatBox, and Orange Theory Fitness is about to open. If you are someone who is in search for your new workout vice and you need guidance as you exercise, try several of these facilities out as most offer a free or reduced cost drop-in/intro. Find a workout style you enjoy and group you mesh well with, it will make your 2015 health goals that much more attainable.
