Group Fitness

When you ask North Americans why they opt out of making time for some healthy exercise, one of the common answers is lack of motivation. This is where something like group fitness can become an integral part of their healthy living. Group fitness offers the ability to interact with others, understand and share challenges with them but most importantly a way to network and get fit at the same time.

Often people shy away from this alternative because they feel shy or embarrassed about how they look. Here is the great thing about group fit, so do the other guys. Understanding the motive for them to be there can really lighten the environment and make you feel better. I once ran a group fit initiative of young adults between 18 and 24, male, overweight and who all shared the aspirations to shed off some pounds. Common goal isn’t it? Their attitudes remained positive and most (if not all) achieved a respectable result.

Working out can be a drag, I know that, you know that and so do the people in the gym right now. But if you care about the longevity of your life and want to be able to stick around to see what’s going to happen in the world 15 to 20 years from now, its not that big of an investment. Consult your local gym or community centre of group fit initiatives. This can include anything from swimming, biking, walking or getting dirty with it in the gym. Show your body some respect and start achieving those goals today…with the right mindset and positive attitude you can do it!

    Group fitness initiatives are very effective. Even if you’re not socializing you’re still fulfilling a common goal and one person’s energy ignites yours. Its a great way to enjoy your workouts while effectively reaching your own fitness goals/objectives.
