This class lineup includes traditional Tai Chi and Kung Fu (learn more about those here) as well as Core De Force, Cize, and PiYo. Plus, the classes sizes are small aka more attention for you.

Here are 5 alternative fitness classes to try at AFC 716:

 

1. Core De Force

Say you’re semi-interested in martial arts, but not quite ready for Kung Fu or Tai Chi. No worries, baby steps. Sign yourself up for this class instead. Core De Force blends martial arts, cardio, and conditioning. Come prepared to punch, kick, and move. Minutes fly by in this class since it’s broken into rounds and speed sections.  

 

2. Cize

Love to dance? Cize is simple and fun. With only 8 choreographed dance moves to worry about literally anyone can learn this and have fun along the way. When this class is your cardio it’s easy to forget you’re shredding, but you totes are.

 

3. PiYo

If you hate yoga and/or pilates, don’t write this off. This class combines the best of both worlds aka you are not required to hold long, intense poses. PiYo is about combining muscle-sculpting and core-firming and strength and flexibility. PiYo is more fast-paced workout and easy to get addicted to because you’ll burn some serious calories in one hour.

 

 

4. Tai Chi

Looking for something low intensity? Tai Chi is a slow physical exercise geared around health and wellness, often referred to as a moving meditation. It incorporates good posture, balance, coordination, breathing, mental focus, etc.

 

5. Kung Fu

Kung Fu is an interesting and exciting option for an alternative full-body workout. Teachers are regulated by the American Chinese Martial Arts Federation (ACMAF), which has a proven curriculum that’s great for beginners. Some of the benefits of practicing Kung Fu include increased self confidence, better balance, and learning morals and values like discipline and patience and more.

If you’re ready to try something new and different, head to AFC 716. Holiday weight gain is v. real, so get ahead while you can. There’s no time like the present.
