Did you know Group Exercise can be more effective for the individual than working out alone? Learn more:

1.    Find motivation and inspiration.
The best way to motivate yourself to push through that extra rep is by having other people by your side to cheer you on. Plus, it’s hard not to get inspired by your classmates.

2.    Proper form helps prevent injury.
One of the most valuable parts of any exercise class is its trainers. Group exercise is a great middle ground between working out alone and hiring a personal trainer. In a group class, you have the benefit of professionals showing you how to do each move with proper form. Plus, if your form is a little off, the trainers are there to help correct you to ensure you don’t injure yourself. You can’t get that from going to the gym alone.

3.    Be part of a community.
It may sound cliché, but it’s true. Being part of a “fit fam” can actually be hugely beneficial. By being part of a community, you can find support and guidance from people who are on the same journey as you. Whether that journey is to better your health and wellness or improve your strength and endurance, there will always be someone who has your back.

4.    Add variety to your workout.
Doing the same moves over and over again can get stale. Not only is it boring, but it also might be hindering your results. Adding variety to your workout is one of the best ways to prevent plateau, and group exercise classes are an easy way to switch things up. Different trainers have different styles of teaching, so even if you find one class you love, it won’t feel stale no matter how many times you go back.

5.    Hold yourself accountable.
We all know the hardest part about working out is getting your butt to the gym. Most group exercise classes require that you book your spot in advance. If you decide to cancel last minute, you’ll likely get charged a pretty penny for your cancellation. This will likely encourage you to stick to your sweat schedule.
