It’s one thing to say your workout class is for all levels. It’s another to actually make it a place where everyone feels comfortable and can get a great workout, from newbies to professional athletes. Colleen Conlon, Studio Manager of The Sweatshed, walks us through how she does it with Sweatshed’s HIIT workouts, how she trains her instructors, and what we should be doing to take care of ourselves when we take a new class.
Anyone who works out knows the feeling of the dreaded plateau: you feel like you’re just going through the motions, you’re bored, and you have a sneaking suspicion that your workouts aren’t actually...doing anything. This can really get in the way of making exercise a regular part of your routine, but motivating yourself to work harder is difficult (for obvious reasons). Daphnie convinces us it’s worth it and helps us figure out how to do it safely.
