2. You feel challenged. Fitness should be fun, but it should also push you to achieve new goals and leave you with a sense of accomplishment that extends beyond having shown up for class.
3. Your instructor shakes things up. Muscles have memory and just because you’re in a Pilates, Yoga or Booty Barre class doesn’t mean you should be doing the same routine on repeat. Not only is it counterproductive, it’s boring.
4. You’re seeing results. It may not happen the way you expect for it to, or when you expect it to, but you should be seeing changes in your body after week six.
5. You’re noticing benefits beyond your booty. Exercise is not only great for slimming down and toning up; it releases endorphins, helps lower cortisol levels and can lead to better mind-body awareness. You may notice that you’re craving different foods, in a better mood or sleeping better.
