Group fitness classes are a great way to find motivation and accountability, while working with a trainer who can provide assistance with form and help you get results.
Everyone is “in it together” in a group fitness class, which naturally lends itself to camaraderie among members. For people who like to be social, this is an important factor. For those who are competitive, the social aspect is valuable because with a little camaraderie comes friendly competition, pushing you to work harder than the person next to you.
This is why group fitness is perfect for days when your workout motivation is low, and you’d otherwise breeze through an easy workout. With both the attendees and the instructor pushing you, you’ll work harder than if you’d gone at it alone.
One of the most popular reasons for taking a group fitness class is the simplest: They’re just plain fun. With music playing and everyone else working with you, sharing in the struggle and the success, it can feel more like a party than a workout.
