Sick of your solo workout routine? From kickboxing to core conditioning to Barre, group fitness classes have something for everyone. Stepping off the treadmill and into a group fitness class can boost your energy, your performance, and your motivation to keep coming back to your workouts!
If you’re used to working out alone, the idea of walking into a new workout class that you’ve never done before can be intimidating. It’s common to worry about keeping up with everyone in the class, doing each move correctly, and not missing a beat.
But, you know what they say – great things don’t come from staying in your comfort zone.
Rest assured that not everyone in the class is a certified expert. Rest assured that you can (and should) go at your own pace. And rest assured that you’ll have a blast!
Studies show that working out in a group setting can improve emotional and physical well-being and lower stress compared to working out alone. O2 Fitness instructors create an incredibly energetic and fun atmosphere that will make you forget you’re even working out.
Plus, you’re more likely to push through a tough workout and continue to show up when you’re surrounded by the energy and encouragement of a group. Research shows that exercising in a group setting improves performance versus working out alone. Strength in numbers, right?
