Benefits of Family Fitness

Regular exercise is great for the body — that’s no secret. Exercise + nutrition = healthy success. This is the tried and true recipe for good health, and when it comes to good health, there is no such thing as the “right” age.

Kids, parents, and grandparents alike can all benefit from a visit to the local gym in Bethlehem, Steel Fitness Riverport. We are a family-friendly facility that emphasizes the many different exercise needs of a family. And we do our best to give them to you.

If you’re looking for a family-friendly gym, you’re looking for Steel Fitness Riverport.

There’s something different for everyone, which is why we are a gym with child care, group training sessions, personal trainers, free weights areas, and SilverSneakers classes. The beauty of each of these exercise options is they all come with a passionate gym staff who wants the same thing for you as you do: RESULTS!

The most important benefit of going to the gym as a family is a focus on health and the hard work it takes for everyone to reach their own goals. Now, let’s take a look at how different members of the family may benefit from what Steel Fitness has to offer.

A Fitness Center For The Family

Let’s start with the kiddos.

Gym With Child Care

Young children don’t have to be a reason for a parent to stay home from the gym. Sure, you could do lunges around the house while you rock your baby to sleep. But that’s not anyone’s first preference. Instead, bring your child to Steel Fitness, where our caring and nurturing staff can look after the youngin’s while the adults get their sweat on. Our child care center can watch infants as young as 12 weeks.

The benefit of children visiting the child care center at our gym is socialization in a healthy environment. Kids can learn to play together in an active way, so everyone leaves the gym after burning some energy.

Youth Training

S.O.S. No, we aren’t lost at sea. We are hosting Sport-specific Off Season training: S.O.S. Tweens and teenagers can participate in our youth athletic programs, whether they are actually training for a favorite sport during the off season or just want an opportunity to be more physically fit and to train with peers.

S.O.S. provides a safe and fun learning environment where youths can learn and practice proper movements and skills.

The benefit of young athletes participating in an S.O.S. training program is they will notice an improvement in speed, agility, and overall athletic performance.

S.O.S. is available in group training sessions or in personal sessions. No matter the setting, each person will receive help setting personal goals, coaching on how to achieve those goals, and tracking results along the way.

Now for the adults.

Individual Training

If you’re the type of person who likes to put on some good music (or maybe your favorite podcast) and get into your own workout routine, then you won’t be disappointed at Steel Fitness. Our gym has more than 60 pieces of cardio training equipment, free weights up to 150lbs, and other strength machines that can all be used together to help people see results. Whether you are a workout novice or a true gym veteran, you’ll find what you need to complete your own workout routine.

The benefit of individual training is there are no time limits or reservations required in this part of the gym. You build and complete your own workouts at your own pace.

Personal Training

Say you need a bit of motivation and structure to help you get your rear in gear at the gym. Hire a personal trainer to be your dedicated coach. Nothing beats private instruction when it comes to specific goals. Personal training is great for people who want to lose weight, improve technique, increase strength, prepare for an event, or just want a bit of personalized attention in the gym.

The benefit of personal training is each session is totally unique based on the current goal and the progress thus far. Our coaches are motivational, supportive, and knowledgeable about fitness in any form.

Group Classes

Now we’re getting into our specialty here at Steel Fitness. We. Love. Group Fitness. With an average of eight classes offered each day, adults can mix up their workout routine without spending hours researching one at home. Group fitness classes are available with the Pulse X or Pulse SGT membership levels.

The benefit of group classes is they are a mixture of individual workouts and personal training. There is an instructor leading every class to provide structure and motivation — like personal training. But each person is largely held personally responsible for choosing which classes to take and then exerting as much energy as they like to get the most out of their workouts.

Our group training sessions include a variety of workouts. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Spin: This spin bike class in our cycling studio is one that will get your heart pumping, sweat pouring, and legs burning. It’s a great mixture of cardio and strength training.
  • Rise And Grind Bootcamp: Burn calories and tone muscle during this circuit-style training session. Kick start your body first thing in the morning so it can effectively burn those calories for the rest of the day.
  • Yoga: This class helps us remember that exercise is as good for your brain as it is for your body. Yoga combines strength, balance, and flexibility exercises into a calming atmosphere to help restore the mind, body, and spirit. It is a must for people of all fitness levels.
  • Anti-Gravity Fitness: This one-of-a-kind total body workout takes place above the ground in a hammock-like apparatus. It combines yoga, pilates, and calisthenics exercises.

Steel Fitness Riverport is a proud partner with SilverSneakers. We gladly welcome our community’s wisest members to workout in our gym. Alongside having access to the entire gym, older adults are invited to our specific SilverSneakers classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The benefit of SilverSneakers is like-minded adults can get together to improve overall well-being, strength, and social aspects. The goal is to get fit, have fun, and make friends!

As you can see, there are many positive individual reasons to bring the whole family to the gym. However, there is also one benefit that impacts the family unit. A family who exercises together gives the grandparents and parents an opportunity to teach the kids about the importance of physical and mental health. Through this endorphin-pumping thing we call exercise, families can become closer knit and can always have something in common.
