The 5 Most Frequently Asked Newbie Fitness Questions


In this blog post I’m going to run through some frequently asked questions I get from newbies. If you’ve been thinking about giving our classes a try, these answers might persuade you to bite the bullet and come and join in the fun!

#1  What is the biggest fear that prevents most people from starting out doing boxing for fitness?

The biggest fear that most people have is being uncoordinated and also holding their partner back in class because they’re unfit.
At dynamic our classes cater for all fitness levels, all the way from complete beginners through to the super-fit. Every class on our timetable is suitable for all fitness and ability levels, all shapes and sizes. This is because every drill is scaleable, any exercise can be modified to accommodate, and our drills are based on time intervals rather than reps. You can choose from our entire timetable with confidence so you can stop worrying about 'holding others back' and concentrate on your own goals!
What sets us apart from our competitors is our ability to cater for all fitness levels within a class so that everyone gets an amazing workout and keeps coming back for more.

#2  Are the classes intimidating for beginners?

It's normal to feel intimidated when you are attending for the first time - after all, you don't know anyone or what to expect. It might look like everyone knows what they’re doing and can keep up with the pace of our classes. But don’t worry, Laska and the team have systems in place that guarantee you will feel comfortable and be able to integrate with your new team mates easily and seamlessly no matter what level of fitness and ability you start at. Rest assured you can go at your own pace and our trainers are on hand and on the ball to guide you through a terrific workout you'll love.
Dynamic members are so friendly and we pride ourselves for having created a close-knit community at Dynamic. All we want is for you to feel at ease and to keep coming back so you can get fitter and fitter. We want you to become a part of the dynamic family!

#3 If someone is overweight or unfit, will they still be able to keep up?

Absolutely. Our classes cater to all fitness levels, from completely new to fitness all the way through to the super-fit! In fact, many people come to us specifically because they want to lose weight. We run weight loss challenges all year round so you will meet and train with people who are in the same boat as you.

#4  Are the classes fun or just hard work?

If you are getting back into fitness after a break, then exercising for the first time will always feel hard because it's activity your body is not used to so of course it's going to complain! You'll probably be a bit stiff and sore for a couple of days afterwards as well and that's perfectly normal. What I can tell you for sure that all other workouts will never feel as bad as the first one! But you know what? Our classes are effective and get you results.
And training hard feels so much easier when you’re having the time of your life! Our members stay with us year after year precisely because our classes are the perfect mix of physical challenge, variety and fun.

#5  What would you say to someone who is thinking of trying but is unsure if it’s for them?

If you’re thinking of trying our classes, stop thinking and pick up the phone to get a free trial. Try a class without any obligation at the end. You have nothing to lose by coming down and having a go.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in our classes soon!
