Group fitness classes are an awesome idea to build rapport within the group, to break a sweat, and they could be a slightly competitive way to have some fun! Depending on the size of your group, call a week or so in advance and let the staff know when you are planning on coming. This is especially important if you plan on attending an indoor cycling class where bikes can sometimes be limited.Your other option with group workouts is to ask the gym if they would host a private workout class of your choosing with a Cal Fit group fitness instructor or personal trainer. Your group could have your own G.S.T. (Group Strength Training), Hot Hula Class, Kickboxing, or Yoga class! Afterwards you can take a quick steam or sit in the sauna before heading out for a healthy bite to eat!

Taking into consideration that the wedding day is fast approaching, a fun summer outing might be a good way to multi-task: Break out the picnic basket and get a tan! If you’ve “been there, done that” with your normal beach spot, try taking an adventure out of town. Surf, kayak, hike, swim, or just unpack the cooler and enjoy the summer sun! Beach day trips are an excellent alternative to long week-long trips where you might have to take off work.
Whatever bridesmaid gatherings you decide to do, make sure it’s something the whole group is up for. And don’t forget, it’s all about having fun in anticipation of your wedding day!
