If you’re new to group training classes, the thought of signing up might be intimidating. You might be worried about keeping up with the class and all the movements included in the workout. You might also assume that you need to be in good shape before you even get started.
The truth is that group training classes can be for everyone – all fitness levels. No matter where you are in your fitness journey and what your goals might be, group training classes have a lot to offer.
Here are just a few of the benefits of group training classes:
1. Workout Structure
Starting a new workout routine can be exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. If you’re training on your own, how do you know where to begin? Or how to structure a workout or even a training plan?
Group training helps you answer all of your questions, plus so much more. Rather than trying to structure a workout all on your own, you have experienced and qualified coaches to help you. You’ll get a proper warm-up, a quality workout, and a cool down. And you can expect that these essential elements of a workout are part of each class you attend.
2. Coaching Feedback
Another benefit of group training is coaching feedback. If you work out by yourself, you might wonder if you’re doing a movement correctly. Or if there are certain parts of a movement or exercise that you can do better.
Even when training with a group, you have access to valuable coaching feedback. Not only will you get a great workout, but you also have a coach nearby to offer helpful comments and support. Your fitness will improve, as well as your form and technique. Using proper form means you’re able to move more efficiently and decrease the chance of injury.
3. Proper Intensity
Without the guidance and programming you get with group training classes, it can be easy to show up at your gym and do the same workout. And while it’s awesome that you show up consistently, you might reach a plateau in your fitness and stop seeing results.
To continue seeing results and also avoid getting bored, it’s important to vary the intensity of your workouts. Adding intensity to your workouts doesn’t mean high-intensity all the time. The key is to include all levels of workout intensity. Adding a variety of intensity levels to your workouts helps you prevent overtraining.
4. Fun and Accountability
Group training offers all kinds of workout benefits. But the most significant benefit you get from working out with a group is the people. Working out with people who share a similar goal is both fun and motivating. Your workout buddies hold you accountable for showing up and working hard. You challenge each other to work harder together, and the best part is that you’ll have fun doing it. You may not like every single aspect of a workout, but the people who surround you will make it much more enjoyable.
