Group fitness is an excellent way to keep yourself on track for your fitness goals. When you surround yourself with people who are aiming to achieve a goal, it helps you become better as well. That not only goes for fitness, but all aspects of life. Surround yourself with people who bring you up. That being said here are 5 good reasons to workout in a group.
Having a room full of people cheering you on to get that extra rep, or push through for those last few seconds of a Tabata interval is powerful. It builds a sense of camaraderie. People working and encouraging each other to be better.
Seeing others succeed in their fitness journey is a huge motivator. When someone pulls off 10 straight pull ups or completes a benchmark workout in record time, you can’t help but be motivated. Within a group the power to be stronger, better, faster is multiplied.
Hearing success stories from others in the group as well as hints, tips and tricks for eating, pre and post workout snacks are just some of the things that will enrich your experience in group fitness. People tend to share what they like, and what things work for them in fitness and diet. Most of our Team workouts always include a confessional time of some indulgent food or beverage choices we made. It is good to indulge.
