We are about to reach our prime here in the city. It is the most coveted time of the year—where Bostonians embrace the warm temperatures, sunshine, and longest days of the seasons. I truly believe this serves as the perfect time of the year to get fit. So, take a moment to set (or re-set) those fitness goals, block off some time on your calendar, and get moving!
Fortunately, living in Boston or the greater-Boston area provides excellent resources for you to get in a great workout. I use the MINDBODY app to add variety to my workout schedule and search for local group fitness classes. What I love most about the app is that it has a built-in filter that allows you to search for classes within a certain distance from your home and lists both last minute and introductory offers at a discount. If you have not downloaded the MINDBODY app, I highly recommend you do. The app is also super helpful because lots of fitness fanatics (like me) leave reviews. You can read the reviews and decide whether the fitness class is the “perfect fit” for you.
Taking group fitness classes is so rewarding. I just love being able to work out and sweat with a community of strong athletes of all levels who embrace the importance of living a healthy and fit lifestyle. Also, I have met some of the most inspirational people and found a wonderful support system through group fitness!
It is the people in these classes who hold you accountable and the positive atmosphere that makes you want to come back for more.
I must admit though, sometimes instead of classes; I do like to run outside and have alone time to myself. Did you know that according to Runners World, Boston was named the third best running city in America? If you would rather run, walk or bike on your own, I highly recommend:
There is nothing like being able to enjoy the great outdoors, while sightseeing and getting in an exciting workout.
So, there you have it—Boston provides a wealth of resources and places for you to be able to get fit. Start with one class, add another, and in a matter of time, you’ll be hooked on fitness. Lastly, do not forget: each of us is on our own fitness journey. Do not compare yourself to others. Your age, size, shape, and weight does not matter. Just do you. Walk confidently into the fitness room, do your thing, and remember to enjoy the experience!
Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.
Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.
We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.
Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.
If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
