It may vary by area but I have memberships at 2 gyms. (One is free because I work there.) Both places offer a variety of yoga, pilates, Total Body Conditioning (TBC), Spinning, Bosu, Step, Insanity, Body Pump, Boot Camp and Body Work, Aqua Aerobics, Kettlebells, and Zumba. Personally, I love TBC, Body Pump, Boot Camp, Kettlebells (when I can make the Wednesday AM class) and Spinning.

Popular group exercises in my town (and also ones in which I participate)
ballet
Jazz
Zumba
Yoga (many types!)
Pilates
Strength (assorted types - no equipment or lots of equipment)
Stretching
Step and floor aerobics

I wish I had more time in which to do them all every week!

at my gym I take Group Power weight lifting class. I love those classes. Check out youtube for the videos on them. I love those classes and boy do they give you a workout.... emoticon

I like Zumba. My gym has also added some new classes in the "Body" family, Body Vive, Body Pump, etc. I haven't checked those out.

I don't know about elsewhere, but the only ones I know of locally include:

- circuit training (leader led)
- Zumba (regular + toning) (used to have aqua ones too, but no longer, at least for now)
- Aqua-fit (or whatever it's called)
- Walk-fit

I suspect there are lots of yoga-types as well, but those are all I've heard of from co-workers and friends, since I don't belong to any clubs

I am considering getting back into teaching group exercise after stopping about 4 years ago. What types of group exercise classes are popular these days??

Thanks!!
