Reach Your Fitness Goals at NEPA’s Local Gyms

Make 2022 Your Healthiest Year Yet

It’s the time of year when our New Year’s resolutions tend to… well… maybe we’d rather not talk about it. But in reality, it’s not about losing a few pounds or getting killer abs. The real goal is feeling your best and staying healthy, and there’s no better place to start than at NEPA’s fitness centers.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a die-hard gym buff or a complete newbie. There’s a gym out there for every age, fitness level and health goal. Maybe 2022 will finally be the year that you lift your personal best or master that yoga posture. Maybe you’re training for your first marathon or chasing down your best mile time. Or maybe you simply want to stay active and keep the winter slump at bay. Set your sights on something you’re passionate about, and suddenly, going to the gym feels less like a chore.

Lace up your sneakers and get ready to sweat. These local gyms, studios and sports centers will help you stay in shape all year round.

 

Hit the Gym

 

 

Traditional gyms are like one-stop shops for all of your workouts. They’re equipped with free weights, cardio machines and strength training equipment so you can build the perfect routine.

Many gyms also offer group exercise classes, which are a fun way to get fit with your friends. Get your pulse pumping at a spin class, dance your heart out at Zumba or unleash your strength at a cardio kickboxing session.

If the mere thought of the gym makes you nervous, try the family-friendly atmosphere at community centers like your local YMCA. And if you’re juggling a hectic schedule, sign up at a gym with 24/7 access so you always have time to squeeze in a workout.

Test Your Limits

If you’re up for a challenge, try some hardcore training. CrossFit WODs, boot camp classes and strength training programs are sure to make you sweat. Embrace that post-workout burn as a reminder of all your hard work.

The huge dumbbells and pull-up bars might look intimidating at first, but beginners are always welcome (trust us, we tried it). You’ll be flipping giant tires and doing burpees in no time.

Staying healthy is about caring for your body and your mind. That’s where local yoga studios step in. They’ll help you feel refreshed and relaxed, all while getting in your daily workout.

It’s okay if you can’t touch your toes. NEPA’s studios offer classes for all skill levels, from beginners to full-fledged yogis. Melt away your stress at a hot yoga session, tone your muscles with a barre class or strengthen your core with Pilates. These studios offer tons of classes to explore.

Fitness Is All Fun & Games

 

Remember all fun you had at recess as a kid? Well, your favorite sports might just make the perfect workout. Break up the same old reps and have some fun at NEPA’s sports centers. Join an indoor soccer league, climb at a rock gym or catch some major air at a trampoline park. You’ll burn calories and have a blast at the same time.
