There are many types of fitness routines that you can choose from.  All you have to do is Google those words and thousands of programs will pop up on your screen.

While any fitness program, with the right commitment and coaching will make you more fit… not all of them lend themselves to making you an all around better person in fitness, health and happiness. Here is where group fitness comes in!

Top 5 reasons why Group Fitness will make you fitter, happier and healthier

Motivation and Support

It is incredibly motivating to work out with a group. Everyone is working hard and working together. Everyone supports each other and wants the next person to do just as well as everyone else. There is always cheering, yelps of encouragement and just an all around supportive environment!

Shared Experience

There is something special that happens when you go to a fitness class with someone, work hard through the workout and end up sweaty, out of breathe and feeling accomplished together on the other side. Even if someone went a little faster than you, or punches out more reps than the next person, everyone knows how hard the next person worked! You can share that experience, talk about it, and share what worked for you and what didn’t.

Accountability

Everyone knows if you missed class and wonders where you are. If you haven’t been in the gym in a week, your coaches and fellow classmates miss you, and text you to see if you are okay. There is a certain level of accountability to signing up for class that makes you follow through. We know that consistency is key to making progress- the accountability of group classes is KEY to that consistency!

Social Time

These are the people that you can share your day with. They aren’t your work colleges, they aren’t your immediate family. They are the “other” friends. The people that you can let loose with, joke with, talk about your day with, and really relax with.

Learning Through Others

When you get to workout and chat with a group, you always pick up something new, maybe a new recipe, a diet tip, a new joke, a fitness tip… or anything related (and sometimes not related) to the gym that you wouldn’t have otherwise learned about while working out alone. There is always something NEW to learn in every class!
