What Is The Trek Class?
The Downtown Athletic Club has a number of group fitness classes to satisfy a wide range of exercise needs and interests. One such class is the Trek It class. This class focuses on group support and interaction. It is a treadmill class, and is good for both runners and walkers alike.
Trek It consists of interval training in a 30 minute session. It burns a ton of calories while getting your heart rate up to give you a thorough cardiovascular workout. This class is unique; you won't find it at other gyms. The group meets two days a week at 8:45 a.m.
Participants in Trek It come from all fitness levels and are there to keep each other focused, and to have some fun. Although this is considered an intermediate class, you can go at your own pace to build up endurance. If you have not ever taken a group exercise class before, this would be a good place to start. Everyone performs at their own level, and there is no choreography involved.
What Other Classes Are Available?
If the treadmill isn't your thing, there are a number of other classes at the Downtown Athletic Club, including Yoga, TRX, Cycling, Zumba, Lifting, Total Body Conditioning and Bikini Bootcamp. No matter what your favorite workout is, you are bound to find a class you’ll enjoy with friendly, knowledgeable instructors who are there to help you reach your goals.
Classes are also a great way to break out of your comfort zone and switch things up. Monotony is the enemy of motivation. You may not realize you’re getting bored with your routine, but suddenly start putting off the gym in favor of other things. Taking a class and trying something new may be just the thing needed to get you back into your groove. Experimenting with a new fitness routine is also a good way to break through a plateau.
