Benefits of Group Exercise

Whether you're a beginner at the gym or you just don't have much fitness knowledge, group fitness classes may be your solution. Joining a class can help build a foundation and structure that you can use to fuel your personal health journey.

1. Motivation

It's inspiring and motivating to be surrounded by dedicated, like-minded individuals. It doesn't get much more empowering than a class with an encouraging instructor and supportive people all working hard together. Group fitness is a great way to help motivate yourself and others to dig deeper and push harder in workouts.

2. Structure

Group fitness is a great way to get a workout in without having to think or plan. Each class is structured with a warm-up, a balanced workout and a cool-down. The warm-up is designed to help you properly raise your heart rate while loosening your joints and muscles before jumping into strenuous activity. The instructor will coach you through each segment of the workout. And to finish off, the cool-down will help you safely lower your heart rate and stretch all the major muscles worked during class to reduce soreness.

3. Proper Form

It is the fitness instructor's job to not only show proper form, but to also make sure that everyone in the class is executing each exercise the right way. Not only is proper form important for your muscles to reap the most out of every exercise, but it also helps eliminate potential injuries.

4. Variety

Having a variety of classes in your weekly workout regimen is a great way to create muscle confusion to keep your body guessing and ramps up your metabolism. As well as helping to prevent boredom!

5. Fun

There's really no other way to put it: group fitness classes are fun. Between the upbeat music, a great workout and a group of people motivating each other along the way, it's an enjoyable way to exercise. If you're looking to add a little more pizazz and fun in your fitness life, group classes may be just what you need.

6. Wellbeing

Research has shown that any exercise can lower stress, improve mood and even decrease symptoms of depressions and anxiety. New research finds that a group exercise class may be even better for your mental wellbeing than a solo session. In addition to a community vibe, researchers noted that the music and choreography used in group classes may boost mood too.
