Benefits of group exercise

8th May 2020

Exercise is great with many benefits for physique and for mental health. Some people prefer to exercise alone whereas some prefer group exercise. Whilst they are both associated with great benefits, group exercising goes beyond and is a great motivator allowing individuals to exercise to the best of their ability, with support and fun.

In the current COVID-19 crisis many of us have had to social distance and avoid social contact. We understand how this can have a great impact on both physical and mental health therefore it is more important than ever to bring people together. Group exercises on online classes for example can be beneficial in bringing people together, improving physical and mental health.

Some of the benefits of group exercise include:

  1. It is a motivation boost

    Meeting like minded people with similar goals to you can be incredibly inspiring. This may help further you along and motivate you to reach your goals.
  2. It provides structure to exercise

    It can be difficult coming up with an exercise regime and motivating yourself to exercise at a specific time. With exercise classes, it takes the stress out of coming up with a structured exercise regime and helps you structure your time better.
  3. Increases social interaction

    Group exercise can allow you to meet new like minded individuals with similar goals to yourself. It is a great way to meet new people!
  4. It's fun!

    Group exercise can be fun. With motivational music, a great group of people and a lively and enjoyable atmosphere it can motivate you to do better for yourself and have fun at the same time.
  5. Help you reach your fitness goals

    Ultimately this fun and motivational form of exercise can aid you in reaching your fitness goals!
