Group Fitness On The Rise
Working out with a friend or in a group is becoming an increasingly preferred form of exercise.
We have all seen it happen – finding the motivation to complete your early morning or late-night workout. You’re at the end of a workout and can’t imagine doing any more. Then your gym buddy or trainer comes along and encourages you for one last set or rep. You do it and push yourself beyond what you could have done alone.
There is something to be said about the power of group training or a 24/7 gym workout with a friend – but what is it about exercising with others that motivates us?
We’ve found some experts on the topic and learned that when it comes to workouts, there are some clear benefits to our belief that – “Friends who Stepz Together – Gain Together”
Gym Benefits Of Training With A Mate – Backed By Science
Or as one study found – lose weight together- “One study found that 95 per cent of those who started a weight-loss program with friends completed the program.”
“Group Fitness may not be a new concept, but it has certainly seen massive up-trends over the last ten years. With rapidly rising numbers in functional training, aerobic and dance-based classes and the emergence of CrossFit and its tribe mentality,” says Sam Waller, Personal Trainer and Franchisor of Stepz Fitness. “I believe it to be a key indicator that working out in a group or using it as a tool to enhance internal or external competitive performance is fast becoming the preferred form of exercise.”
Not only is group fitness having a moment, but it’s having a significant impact on our health, too.
Research shows that the healthy actions of others rub off on us. A study published in the Journal of Social Sciences found that participants gravitate towards the exercise behaviours of those around them. And a 2016 study published in the journal Obesity found that overweight people tend to lose more weight if they spend time with their fit friends — the more time they spend together, the more weight they lose.
Which makes a pretty strong argument for making your workouts communal. But it’s just one of many reasons why it may be easier (and more enjoyable) to get fit in a pack.
