We all know that regular exercise is an important aspect of living a long and healthy life. For some this task may be easier than for others. Whether it’s finding the time, the energy, or just purely the desire to exercise, we understand that picking up weights or running a few miles at before or after the work day might not be your thing. Group exercise classes
are a nice alternative to the daily grind of a regular exercise routine. Here are 5 reasons why you should try a group exercise class:
1) Workout with friends
There is nothing more motivating than working out with a small group of close friends or family members. With group exercise classes you can challenege yourself by competing with your peers. When you train with your friends you are also held accountable. You can’t bail on them because you are tired or don’t want to work out that day. Your friends are counting on you to show up to class and help push them, just as you are counting on them to help push you through the workout.
2) Don’t have to plan your own workout
When you go to a group exercise class there is no pre-planning required. You show up, and go through the program that is created for you by the class instructor or personal trainer
. This takes away the extra time and mental drain of trying to plan out your own exercise program for the week.
3) Get the most bang for your buck
Most group exercise classes are priced very fairly, especially when compared to the cost of a full time gym membership or personal trainer. While those are also great options for getting regular exercise; group exercise classes give you a community type atmosphere and a professionally designed exercise program all at a price that wont break the bank.
There are all kinds of different group exercise classes offered. Common classes range from circuit training style classes with weights to yoga and Pilates classes. One day you can work on building strength and lean muscle, while the next you work on flexibility and core strength. This regular variety helps keep even the most reluctant exercisers excited to get their daily workout in.
5) Get all the same health benefits of working out on your own
The goal of any exercise program is to improve your overall health and well-being. Group exercise classes give you all the health benefits of working out on your own, but provide you with a community, professional coaching and excitement that may be lacking from going to the gym all by yourself.
