What Are Some of the Most Popular Fitness Courses Available?

Fitness courses can be readily booked in most gyms and private exercise facilities – but as there are so many to choose from, it can be quite difficult to agree on one that will offer you the best results for your body; both physically and emotionally. The majority of gyms will specialise in just one or two courses, but there are those that cater to a wider base of people. If you’re keen to get in shape, or to improve your health, then here are five of the most popular courses and practices available.


This is by far one of the most well-known types of course in Florida (and the wider world). It involves a variety of training exercises that could be deemed intensive, but with 95% of practitioners being satisfied with their results in the space of three months (or 90 days as the name of the course dictates), it’s no wonder why so many swear by its benefits and features.


Another highly intensive course, consider CrossFitness the rival to P90X. Instead of relying on indoor activities predominantly (as is the case with P90X), this alternative takes its practitioners outside; where tire flipping exercises are common and running through the rain is just another average day. The goal of this course is to burn calories and help practitioners to get in shape in a matter of months.


For those that prefer a little more relaxation to their regimes, the practice of Pilates might be the way to go. In its simplest form it’s an alternative to yoga and it relies on holding positions for particular lengths of time to strengthen the durability of muscles, ligaments and parts of the body in general. It’s suitable for all ages, but is most common amongst those aged between 35 and 55.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art that aids in balance, strength and resilience. There are two types; one that relies on physical forms and another which instead uses a Tai Chi sword (a Jian). The former is the most common and the easiest way to understand what it involves is by comparing it to traditional martial arts (consider Karate or Judo), with a hint of yoga thrown in for good measure.


Yoga is another very effective fitness solution for those that want to strengthen their bodies, whilst learning to hone their inner balance – bringing peace to their mind. It’s very similar to Pilates, but shouldn’t be confused for it. By entering into a variety of different poses, a practitioner will be promoting the strength and durability of their body, whilst encouraging internal health.
