Whether it’s been a while since you’ve stepped foot in a gym or you’ve been doing your own workouts for years, group fitness classes can be a functional addition or substitution to your workout routine.
Here are five reasons to start group fitness classes:
1. Learn Proper Form
When you train with a group, the class is led by a knowledgeable and experienced coach. As a result, you’ll learn the right way to move and not have to guess or assume you’re using proper technique. Learning proper form also decreases your chances of getting an injury.
2. Meet New People
It’s easy to get into a routine of hanging out with the same group of people. Group fitness classes give you the chance to meet new and interesting people from all different walks of life. And you’re guaranteed to share at least one thing in common – fitness!
3. Get Results
One of the greatest things about group fitness classes is how much the workouts will challenge you. There’s a little bit of a competitive spirit when you work out with others, but the primary person you’re trying to compete with is yourself. As you push harder to do better than you’ve done in the past, you’ll get results.
4. Find Your Routine
When you’ve dedicated a specific chunk of your day to a group fitness class, you’re setting yourself up for a routine of success. By choosing and being held accountable for the time and days that you’ll be at the gym, you’re more likely to show up and get closer to achieving your goals.
5. Never Plateau
Group fitness programming includes variety and unique workouts that will challenge you. You’ll also establish benchmarks through specific workouts to measure your progress. The constant variety ensures your body doesn’t plateau.
