5 Benefits of Group Exercise Classes
Updated: Feb 16
Motivation and Accountability
One of the top reasons people miss or don't finish a workout to their full ability is a lack of motivation. In a group class, you have the motivation of not only the instructor, but also a class full of like-minded individuals to lift you up!
Subconsciously (or consciously) you’ll be pushing yourself harder than you would on your own. It also holds you accountable to show up week after week, and finish each workout!
Another major reason that people stop going to the gym or aren’t getting the results they want out of their workouts is lack of structure and knowing how to put an effective routine together.
If you’re tired of doing the same types of workout day after day, a small group exercise class is a great way to switch it up and incorporate some variety into your routine! Most classes, including the small group fitness classes at Inspire Fitness Training Studio, will use a variety of different equipment and training techniques to keep it fun and exciting every time.
Correct form during any type of exercise is key, and something people often struggle with. When you attend a workout class, a certified instructor is constantly watching, walking around, and correcting people’s form. This helps to prevent injury, ensure you are targeting the correct muscles, and getting the most out of your workout!
Joining a workout class is a great way to meet people in your area, who likely have similar interests, lifestyles, goals, and hobbies. After all- you both chose to attend the same fitness class!
If you’re new to town, it’s a great way to make friends in your community. You’ll start to see familiar faces in classes, and eventually “gym talk” can lead to smoothies after class, a run on the weekend, and maybe friendships far beyond!
