Group Fitness

The concept of group fitness has become a growing trend in fitness culture for quite some time and continues to increase in the fitness community everyday. Group fitness begins with the idea of bringing students together with a common goal, to get in shape, be part of something and get motivation they otherwise might not have. When students come together to workout they bring a sense of belonging, a sense of community where they can begin to feel familiar, accepted, and gain momentum within their workout environment. Going solo to the gym doesn’t breed a lot of friends, and a particularly social atmosphere, but group classes can and some persons need this sense of belonging and community to perform their best. In addition, having an instructor present (and sometimes even instructor aids) can really help bring an added sense of motivation and understanding of the exercises being taught.

Group Fitness: How It Works

There are an enormous variety of group fitness classes conducted throughout the world every single day. “Group exercise, first known as “aerobics” upon its debut in the U.S. in the 1970s, has evolved into a sophisticated smorgasbord of activities, offering constantly changing, creative options,” states an article written by Julie King at IHRSHA. Source. These classes are lead by an instructor and can vary immensely in size. Before taking any class, make sure you are mentally and physically able to participate, and check that the instructor has been professionally trained (received a known established certification to teach that group exercise class). Once you’ve made your selection of exercise, prepare by inquiring if there are any materials you need to bring, or if they are any provided. Then, just show up! The beauty of this type of workout is the energy derived from a mass as opposed to a single person. Sometimes it can be tremendously encouraging to practice in a group setting rather than trying to self motivate. The added bonus of having a group motivator there leading the class, keeping a trained eye or your form, and encouraging you to meet and even surpass your known boundaries can also play a pivotal role in taking your workout to the next level!

Group Fitness: Why It Can Work For You

Group fitness can serve as a means to motivate. By having a set time, day, and allotted time to workout, you know what your exercise regimen will be and be able to structure your day. When creating your own fitness routine, you’re left to devise a workout from your own knowledge base, or possibly a material you read or a friend or colleges. In a group fitness setting, you have a trained professional who, if trained properly, has been well groomed in their area of expertise and who comes from a community of other instructors and fitness personnel full of ideas and methods to further aid your workout. Much can be learned and gained in these group settings! At FitNetX you can find the class the best fits you! Look for things you think you might enjoy, or possibly something you’ve always been curious about, and give it a try! Expand your horizons in fitness and see what your good efforts bring to your future.
