5 Benefits of Having a Fitness Community
“Together we’ll go far!” – Jessica Yarmey
Having a like minded group of people in one place together is a game changer when it comes to pursuing your fitness goals! When you’re chasing big changes, it’s easier when you can go on that journey with the support of a community. There is often power in achieving goals with a group.
There are a wide variety of reasons people love group fitness. Here are some of the biggest:
Signing up for your next class is a commitment to show up not just for you, but for others too. It’s easier to get yourself to the studio when you have a scheduled workout slot that you’ve committed to.
Once you’re at class, you get in a better sweat session as you feed off the energy of the coach and those around you.
3. Stress Reduction
In 2017, researchers published a study in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association that found that medical students who participated in group fitness classes experienced a significant decrease in stress and an increase in physical, mental, and emotional quality of life. The support and encouragement of a group environment combined with the cortisol-lowering endorphins from exercise are a powerful cocktail for stress reduction.
4. Improved Fitness
What sounds more fun, 45 minutes running alone on the treadmill or 45 minutes in a high-energy kickboxing class? For most people, it’s the latter. Group fitness workouts are typically more fun and interactive, making members more likely to stick with a program long-term, and thus get in better shape and reach their fitness goals.
5. Social Connection
Attending a group fitness class is a great way to meet new people who share similar interests and goals. Classes with friends fly by! The sense of community alone is often enough motivation for members to hit the studio on a regular basis.
