Fitness & Dance Exercise on Health Benefits 

Group Fitness Session - Workout Outside - Social Distance

Increase your commitment to a fitness routine: “Working out with a crowd carries a plethora of intertwined benefits that include enhancing consistency, duration, motivation, conversation and inspiration,” says Dian Griesel, Ph.D., co-author of TurboCharged and president of public relations firm DGI. “Workouts with others improve consistency because they involve a commitment. ‘No shows’ and cancellations get noticed by others and positive peer pressure can help curtail the urges to skip a workout … or quit.”

Be part of a community.

It may sound cliché, but it’s true. Being part of a “fit fam” can actually be hugely beneficial. By being part of a community, you can find support and guidance from people who are on the same journey as you. Whether that journey is to better your health and wellness or improve your strength and endurance, there will always be someone who has your back.

 

Add variety to your workout.

Doing the same moves over and over again can get stale. Not only is it boring, but it also might be hindering your results. Adding variety to your workout is one of the best ways to prevent plateau, and group exercise classes are an easy way to switch things up. Different trainers have different styles of teaching, so even if you find one class you love, it won’t feel stale no matter how many times you go back.

 

Hold yourself accountable.

We all know the hardest part about working out is getting your butt to the gym. Most group exercise classes require that you book your spot in advance. If you decide to cancel last minute, you’ll likely get charged a pretty penny for your cancellation. This will likely encourage you to stick to your sweat schedule.
