Have you ever considered group training? Or joining a boot camp?
To some, the gym is a space to be alone where you can lock into a meditative-like mind-set. However, there are plenty of benefits to reap when getting involved in group training. What could be better than training alongside like-minded individuals where you can come together to motivate and inspire one another to tackle your fitness goals head on.
Whether it’s zumba classes, kickboxing classes or a yoga class, there are a variety of group training and boot camps across the country. Here are some of the wonderful benefits of group training.
A sense of duty
Many tasks at group training events require partnering up where you’ll spot and support one another. This means you have a sense of duty to your peers as well as yourself, so when you wake up to that alarm call and consider staying in bed for an extra hour instead you won’t just be disappointing yourself, you’ll be letting your classmates down as well.
The motivational atmosphere
It can be tough when you hit that wall when you’re half way through a workout and nobody’s there to pull you out of it. When exercising in isolation it’s easier to fall behind as there are zero consequences aside from your personal fitness gains. In group training or at a boot camp, you’re immersed in a motivational atmosphere created by the instructor and participants in the group. This means you’ll never be short of support when you’re struggling to perform that last mile, rep or push.
Nearly all successful figures had competition with somebody – this is incredibly healthy and builds a great drive when it’s friendly. This can be found at group training – you’ll have an innate competition with the people around which fires up inspiration to perform a task or particular exercise well.
Advice from peers & friends!
The great thing about training in a group is that you’re likely to share similar goals with the people around you. There is a common ground in group training which allows you to socialise with ease – this can be valuable for learning new tips and approaches.
