If you have a goal to become physically fit, you are already on a good path. Adopting a healthy life style and being fit are the best ways to keep you away from obesity and heart diseases. The truth is, a healthy body is able to fight off infections much better and more naturally than a body that isn’t physically fit. Working out is one of the best ways to be healthy and the great news is that it is a lot more fun to work out in a group exercise setting than to go it alone. Here’s how!

For one, the group will help you to have accountability.

Working out in group exercise class is easy if you join a program such as XFIT, TUFF, Zumba, BodyPump, RPM, the list is endless. With XFIT, you are surrounded by like-minded individuals who have one goal in mind, to become physically fit. XFIT uses innovative high intensity physical fitness training. They use a combination of exercises through gymnastics conditional development and Olympic weight lifting. When working within a group such as this, you can benefit from the accountability you will have with the other members. They won’t let you quit or miss a class; it’s a great way to stay committed and motivated.

TUFF stands for ‘The Ultimate Fitness Firster’. This type of class is great for working out in a group exercise environment. If a person has a goal in mind to lose weight and become physically fit, TUFF is a great way to do it. The classes are done in short bursts of several minutes of intensive physical training with short rest periods in between, know as HIIT (High Intesnity Interval Training)By doing this in a group setting, it is easier to keep up with the sets as and to work with the specified weights; the group environment keeps you working hard to your maximum effort. Get ready, as the classesare challenging but will leave you feeling energised and pumped!

Swing Yoga is also a great option for a group exercise class. This type of exercise is so different from your normal workout sessions and will leave you feeling calm, relaxed and energised. Swing Yoga is calming and relaxing but also intense enough to build muscles while increasing stamina, boosting metabolism, and helping with balance. When you roll all that into one with the use of specialised swings and expert instructors, you have an intense workout you have Swing Yoga. When you do this within a group, you have an even more enjoyable time. You will look forward to these sessions as you travel the physical activity path with like-minded people who want to have healthier bodies just like you. It’s also a great way to meet new and existing friends in a new social environment, while staying fit and active at the same time. Cancel you post-work calorie filled dinner plans and opt for a group exercise class instead.

As you can see, there are many great ways of working out in a group exercise setting. Meet new friends, join a new community, invite your friends along or spend some quality time with your partner.

True, but I think it depends on your goals. Group classes are a great way to stay motivated and to share your workout with friends. One-to-one personal training is more effective when aiming to reach a specific health or fitness goal. Both have their benefits.

Your blog is GREAT by the way!
