It can be hard getting yourself to the gym on a cold and dark morning or after a long day, busy at work, so having someone egging you on really helps. Training as part of a group and having friends all heading to the same exercise class applies just the right amount of pressure to join them and not let them down. Though it might be easy to bail on yourself, bailing on people encouraging you to do well is a lot harder, you’re more likely to attend the gym more regularly if you have gym buddies both relying on you and routing for you. Not only this but it also adds a little bit of healthy competition, which is always good for anything you wish to improve.
A structured workout
Exercise classes are great for gym newbies or for anyone that isn’t a fan of being by themselves in the gym. Attending a class is a more organised way of working, you go knowing exactly what part of the body you’re working on, what type of muscles you’ll be targeting and for exactly how long you’ll be exercising for. If you find it hard to concentrate and stay in the gym for an effective period of time, going to a class could be a good idea.
Most importantly you will be having fun whilst working out, doing group activities is very rewarding. If you exercise on your own you can become bored and you may not want to continue training anymore, which is why group exercise is perfect for you.
