    For the second consecutive summer, members of Straight Blast Gym Buford will head towards blue waters for a fun Saturday morning group fitness workout at Lake Lanier. A big part of group fitness is varying the workouts, and sometimes even varying the environment, to keep things fresh. The annual lake workout allows us to soak up the sun and enjoy the water, while burning calories, pushing our muscles, and leaving some sweat on the beach.


    Part of what makes group fitness classes at Straight Blast Gym Buford so much fun and successful is the constant variety offered to the members. Our certified and experienced coaches are constantly changing up the workout routines through different exercises, movements, and levels of intensity. This constant variation keeps the body experiencing positive results, where as a lot of other group fitness classes run the same curriculum over and over, leaving the participants bored and frustrated.

    The group fitness Lake WOD (Workout Of the Day) will be held on Saturday, July 8th, at 10am. The destination is Lake Lanier, in Buford, GA. The workout will be hosted and run by CrossFit Level 1 certified coach, Kristen Rhodes.


    All members and non-members of Straight Blast Gym are welcome to join us for the group fitness Lake WOD, with the only prerequisite being that you are able to swim. If you enjoy workouts like Cardio Kickboxing, CrossFit, or Fitness Bootcamps, you will thoroughly enjoy Coach Kristen‘s workout! Following the group fitness workout, a lot of the Straight Blast Gym members tend to stay and hang out on the beach, enjoying a day of food, fun, and adult beverages.


    If you are a non-member and would like to join us, simply give us a call and we’d be happy to add you to our group fitness Lake WOD on Saturday, July 8th.
