Benefits of group exercise

Turn fitness into a social event and you'll be reaping the motivational and health benefits in no time.

Benefits of group exercise
Whether you join in a class in a gym or an outdoor bootcamp, or simply have a training buddy, there are many benefits to exercising with a group.

If you work out with friends, accountability is a great motivator. If you don't show up, you'll be letting someone else down. Try joining your local netball team, a terrific activity for guys and gals.

Encouragement from an instructor or your workout buddies can be a key factor in keeping you on track. Remember that it feels good to give a compliment, too, so pay it forward. Try joining a dance class with your partner and give them lots of praise, even when your toes get trodden on!

Another plus is the social aspect of group exercise. You can make friends with similar interests and you'll even remember their names because you haven't been drinking! I've been teaching a Saturday morning cycle class for years. People arrive early now, so they can catch up with fellow classmates.

For me, the most important reason to train in a group is because it's fun.

You'll laugh, you'll sweat, you'll work hard and in no time you'll be finished and feeling ready to face the world. Whether it's a heavy-duty bootcamp or a brisk morning walk along the beach, it's definitely more fun when you work out together.
