A little encouragement from the instructor or fellow classmate can help you keep up your level of workout intensity. A good group fitness class should provide a very positive atmosphere.
Healthy competition helps most people deliver their best effort. Challenging a workout buddy can help you both do more than you would have done on your own.
Enduring a challenging workout together is a great way to develop new friendships.
When you’re part of an exercise group, others will know when you miss a workout. You’ll be less likely to skip a group strength training class when others are counting on you.
An instructor led workout is more likely to be a well planned, complete workout. On your own you might be tempted to skip exercises you don’t like or aren’t sure how to perform correctly.
A good group exercise class will encourage a sense of play. If you’re smiling and sweating at the same time your intensity will be higher and you’ll realize better results.
