Every now and then I run across a facility or two that still refers to group fitness or group exercise classes as, “Aerobics Classes”. With the growing trends in the fitness industry ( boot camps, HIT classes, and cross fit) becoming all the craze. Do you think that using the term, Aerobic hinders a group exercise program?
Yes, it is dated and it will hinder attracting new people to try it. I was just talking about the old aerobics classes to a fellow trainer earlier today. Its funny looking back at the evolution of group class crazes. It started out with aerobics which was a body weight keep you moving activity, to step which was the same thing with resistance, to basic Zumba which is the same thing as the old aerobics classes except with Latin music. lol
