What Group Fitness Class is Right for You?


What Group Fitness Class is Right for You?


“There is strength in numbers” is more than just an old adage. When it comes to fitness, research has shown that there are some serious benefits to working out in groups. The good news is that there are plenty of amazing group fitness classes out there. That’s also the bad news. With so many to choose from, how on Earth do you know which one is right for you?

The best way to narrow down your choices is to decide what you want from a group fitness class. Are you hoping to slim down or tone up? Are you ready for something intense or are you in need of something a bit more laidback? No matter what you are looking for, there really is a class format out there for everyone!

“I want to lose weight, but I hate running.”

When it comes to burning calories, many people assume they’ll have to hop on the treadmill or the elliptical for hours on end. The truth is that there are some great group fitness classes designed to make cardio sessions much more fun. Whether you raise your heart rate in a dance class or by rocking out on a bike, you’ll be that much closer to your goal.
Classes: Zumba®, SoulCycle®, RPM®
Keywords: weight loss, endurance, cardio, dance, spin, aerobics, interval training

“I want to build long, lean muscles.”

While you aren’t going to “look bulky” either way, some women prefer to take classes that are built to sculpt a long, lean physique. For this type of strength workout, bodyweight or low-weight moves are ideal. As an added bonus, many of these types of classes focus on balance, flexibility, and stress-relief to leave you feeling your best.
Classes: Power Yoga, Bar Method®, SLT
Keywords: sculpt, stretch, strength, tone, yoga, barre, pilates, core, strong, power

“I want a one-stop-shop.”

If you need to combine your strength and cardio sessions, you’re in luck. Some of the most popular fitness classes are the best of both worlds. Most of these high-intensity classes are planned out by the week, so consistency is key if you want to hit all your major muscle groups and guarantee success.
Classes: Orangetheory®, Burn Boot Camp®, Crossfit®

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
