Group Exercise Schedule

 

7 Benefits of Group Exercise

1. Proper Instruction

Knowing the correct technique of any workout prevents injuries and will maximize your results. Instead of being intimidated to use particular equipment, a group class will teach you the proper way to use the equipment.

2. Motivation

Going to a class with a friend or exercising beside a stranger is a great way to boost your ego. Being able to keep up with the class is great motivation for pushing personal boundaries and achieving goals, especially when the instructor is saying “just 5 more!” You are able to push yourself a little more to finish out the set with the rest of the class!

3. Make New Friends

In a group fitness setting you have the opportunity to meet new people, and make new friends. You get to meet people that you wouldn’t normally meet unless you were taking a class.

4. Routine, Routine, Routine

Scheduled classes are great for people that like to stick to a routine. If you know you only have one hour at the gym you can schedule your time according to the class you want to take and still get a full body workout.

5. Get a Full Body Workout

In most classes you work a variety of muscles throughout the class. You are more likely to complete a full body workout and challenge yourself if you are in a group setting.

6. Push Yourself Further

When you are in a group setting you are more likely to push yourself and work harder.

7. It’s Fun!

Working out in a group fitness setting is fun and takes your mind off of the work. Most classes have energetic music to keep you pumped up and get you going.
