We're just a few days into 2017 and we're all still in that adorable phase where we wholeheartedly believe we will keep our New Years resolutions. We all plan to eat clean, stay fit and refrain from getting drunk texting our exes. Now, I can't really help you with that last one, but as for the first two, I might be able to offer you some service before your "cheat day" turns into a "cheat year."
Working out can often be a little boring and it often causes some of us to fall off the wagon and go back to eating pizza because that's clearly so much more fun. However, YYC has a bunch of fitness classes that actually might be just as fun as eating pizza, (and it won't give you major muffin top afterward.) Personally, I love to workout without feeling like I'm actually working out - and if you're like me, these fitness classes are definitely the place for you to hold on to those New Years Resolutions.
SURFSET @ Studio Revolution
Love surfing? Well, sadly in our dry, cold prairies, there aren't many surfing opportunities. Except at a surfset fitness class, of course. Try out the amazing surfboard workout that'll have you feel like you're riding the waves with every session. Not to mention, burning major calories! Surf set classes at Studio Revolution will definitely keep you on track for your New Years resolution all year around.
Aerial Fitness @ Fit Republic YYC
Aerial Fitness (also known as Aerial Yoga or Anti-Gravity Yoga) is one of the most fun ways to stay active and get in an amazing stretch.

Aerial fitness at Fit Republic YYC will have you feeling like you're on top of the world this year.
Pole Fitness @ PoleJunkies
Look sexy, feel sexy, sweat sexy. Now, I'm sure people might have different opinions on this, but trust me on this, pole fitness classes are one of the best ways to work up a sexy sweat. You'll come to learn pole dancing takes a lot of strength and technique, and the ladies over at Pole Junkies will have you looking and feeling like a pro. Not only will you have burned a whole lot of calories, you'll have some new material to take home to bae... what more could you ask for this year?
