KERRIE FITNESS -Stay Motivated to Workout With Group Fitness.

Your long training season is just underway and already you’re struggling to stick with it. The solution might be standing right beside you. Whether it’s a running club, a spin class at the gym, or a group cycling adventure, exercise partners can help motivate endurance athletes and fitness junkies to get out of a training rut.

Experts agree that working out in a group can encourage a person to begin an exercise routine in the first place, as well as keep them committed in the long term. A review published in the Journal of Medicine and Sciences in Sport and Exercise identified a number of studies that link social support with exercise adherence.

“Having someone to experience the workout with can help keep them motivated,” says Cindra Kamphoff, a certified sport psychology consultant at The Runner’s Edge in Mankato, Minnesota. “By knowing others are experiencing this same thing, it normalizes the pain and discomfort that can be a part of exercise.”

Group exercise has its challenges. But the pros often far outweigh logistical hurdles and other complications. If you’re looking to start an exercise routine for the first time, or reignite your passion for a sport or fitness regimen, try to recruit a few friends or join an organized club, group or organization. When it comes to working out, there’s strength in numbers.

Challenges to Group Exercise

  • Size: If a group is too big, you can end up feeling lost in the crowd. Rather than being motivated, the group allows you to get away with giving less than your all. Be sure to find a group that provides some individual attention.
  • Bad Instructors: While most coaches and teachers are good at what they do, you may need to shop around to find the best fit. Find an instructor who will motivate, not frustrate, you.
  • Waning Confidence: Joining a group can take some guts, especially if you’re new to the sport or activity. Look for a supportive, likeminded group to cut down on your anxiety.
  • Lack of Options: Depending on where you live, group exercise options can be limited. Don’t let the lack of a group stop you. Instead, consider starting your own.

Benefits of Group Exercise

  • Accountability: You’re less likely to skip a workout if you work out with friends in an organized group.
  • Camaraderie: Working out with a group turns exercise into a social activity. It’s no longer a chore, but a healthy getaway that you might just start to look forward to.
  • Identity: When you workout with others, the activity tends to form a link with your identity. The group builds, feeds, and maintains that image you’ve created. Ultimately, it can help you stick with your routine.
  • Competition: Friendly competition can help motivate you to exercise even on the days you don’t feel like working out. You’re less likely to skip a workout if you know your competition will be waiting for you.
  • Encouragement: On the days you’re feeling sick or unmotivated, the group often picks up the slack and helps restart your engine.
  • Enjoyment: Working out alone can get boring and suddenly you’re not having fun anymore. Sharing your training experience with others—both the challenges and triumphs—can increase the enjoyment of the activity or training routine.

#kezfit Kerrie Core is a 30 minute workout, exercising the muscles of the whole core unit, to strengthen, shape and tone your abdominals, obliques, lower back and butt. Essential foundation for a stronger, leaner body.

With these exercises, you will not only hammer your core, but you will also boost your total body stability and strength. Don’t get mad at me if you’re super sore the next day! In fact, you will hear me saying, you’re welcome!

Srong core muscles make it easier to do most physical activities. Weak core muscles can also leave you susceptible to poor posture, lower back pain and muscle injuries. Strengthening core muscles may also help improve back pain.

KERRIE FITNESS – Visits Ben Dooley Estate, Southern Highlands, NSW.

Feeling the need to breathe in some fresh country air, Kerrie Fitness took a short road trip down to the Southern Highlands of NSW and found this fantastic spot. Ben Dooley Estate is a popular vineyard, restaurant and wedding venue. Set amongst the large open fields just east of Berrima, it is a great place to let your hair down and unwind.

Exercise is also a great way to unwind as it raises your endorphins, triggering a positive feeling in your body.

KERRIE FITNESS – WINNER Local Business Awards 2018.

Kerrie Mewett opened her studio KERRIE FITNESS in 2013, after ten years of instructing in the fitness industry. Not content with just moving along at the pace of the big name programs on offer at the gyms she worked in, she decided to create her very own programs and soon had a following. Kerrie taught her own core class “KERRIE CORE” at gyms and her own studio, at the same time as building on her new program “KHIIT” (Kerrie High Intensity Interval Training). Working endlessly on her class structure prior to cutting ties with other gyms and programs and unleashing KHIIT to her members! Providing a new workout each and every week. Keeping up with the times of busy lifestyles. Kerrie’s workouts have you in and out of her studio in just half an hour. No time to think about the outside world whilst you’re training. Sculpted from head to toe and feeling a million dollars by the time you leave.

After five successive “Finalist” nominations in the Campbelltown Local Business Awards, this year 2018, Kerrie successfully won the award for “Best Fitness Services”! A testament to the hard work and dedication by Kerrie for the creation of Kerrie Core and her KHIIT programs… Aerobics, Bench, Martial Arts and Weighted. Along with being awarded Les Mills Instructor of the year Australia Asia Pacific Region 2008 and 2014, Kerrie is one instructor whose class you need to experience “Live”.

To train at KERRIE FITNESS with Kerrie, come and visit her Studio at Unit H10, 5-7 Hepher Road, Campbelltown, Sydney, NSW, Australia. No bookings necessary.

Live out of the area? That to is no longer an issue. Whilst Kerrie has been busy with her members in her studio, in the background she has been building a recording studio with her husband Trevor, to produce online workouts. Just this month, June 2018, #kezfit was launched! You can now download your very own #kezfit Kerrie Core 1 class online at www.kerriefitness.com.au . #kezfit Kerrie Core 2 is due to launch on 21 July 2018.

KERRIE FITNESS – 100% – 5 from 5. But this time it’s extra sweet!

Being nominated as a finalist in the fitness industry is one thing we really get a kick out of at KERRIE FITNESS.  Ask me why?

It’s quite simple really.  It is an affirmation that we are doing the right thing by our members, we are giving them what they want.  We are caring about their progress, we are engaging them.  We are with them the whole way.

We would like to thank each and every one of you “voters”, of course I won’t be making the classes easier!  But Thanks.

In 2004 I started teaching Les Mills at Fitness First.  Over the next decade along with the 20 plus classes I taught with Les Mills content, I also began to develop my own class, KERRIE CORE.

With Fitness First closing down I took the leap of faith and opened my own studio, continuing with Les Mills and ZUMBA plus adding more of my own classes to the timetable.  And along the way collected 4 x Local Business award finalist nominations and won my second Les Mills Australia Asia Pacific Instructor of the year award (2008) (2014)

Late last year I once again took that leap of faith, and with a heavy heart let Les Mills programs go.

That was to make room for my own style of HIIT training KHIIT!  Kerrie High Intensity Interval Training.  Along with Kerrie Core and ZUMBA the timetable was completely renewed.

To have been fortunate enough to once again receive a nomination for finalist and this time not relying on a world wide known draw card such as Les Mills, I feel that this is the best nomination yet as it makes me believe I’m on the right path.
