Signing up for a fitness class is one of the best way to be committed to having a regular exercise schedule. With an instructor you can be assured that you are doing the steps correctly and am able to get the maximum benefit out of the 1 hour exercise class.
As a Mom of three with an extremely busy daily schedule I’ve been trying to squeeze out some time for exercise each week. I know how important it is to get regular exercise to maintain my fitness level.
Exercise is one of the key pillars to keep healthy and one of my goals this year is to increase the amount of exercise that I am currently getting so that I will be able to get to my ideal weight faster.
Now that I’m an AIA Vitality member, I decided to attend a Zumba Fitness class at True Yoga.
True Yoga, one of the partners with AIA Vitality, has a wide selection of classes which you can take in bid to keep healthy. You can choose from 35 different types of Yoga, Hot Yoga, Pilates and Dance classes you are certainly spoiled for choice.
Before you start any fitness class it is advisable that one goes for a fitness assessment before starting an exercise regime.
For $35 you can get a Vitality Fitness Assessment at True Fitness which will let you know more about your current fitness levels. You can earn up to 3,000 Vitality Points for completing the assessment and if your results are in the healthy range.
You can book a class through at True Yoga by calling their hotline, online through their website or through the newly launched True Yoga Mobile App. It is really easy.
A few weeks back I tried out the Zumba fitness class at their Pacific Plaza branch. I booked a slot through their hotline after browsing through the available classes for my chosen time slot online.
I arrived slightly before my class started and placed my stuff in the lockers that they provided and headed to the studio.
The class was conducted in Studio B. There was a small platform in the centre of the room where the Zumba instructor stood so that everyone could get a bird’s eye view of him doing the various moves.
It was really fun participating in the medium to high impact workout and burning up to 500 calories in the process. There were different songs that we danced to and before I knew it the class was over.
Besides having a fun workout there are also many different benefits that one can have by working out at True Yoga with the AIA Vitality card.
Card members get the following benefit

Exercise doesn’t have to be limited to the gym. As a AIA vitality member you can track your workout using their handy app which I have installed in my phone. (This App is available for both Apple and android phones.)
