Group Exercise Is The Future of Fitness
Group exercise provides participants with an opportunity to get motivated and push themselves by being physically active with others. Most of us remember playing outdoors with friends during our childhood or participating on sports teams in school. Once we hit adulthood, though, many of these forms of exercise fade away to make time for other responsibilities. Too often we try to get back into shape by joining a gym or buying fitness DVDs only to find it is hard to motivate ourselves during this solo workouts. Enter group fitness.
Group fitness generally involves physical activity with others under the direction and supervision of a trainer. At OC|FIT, trainers use all sorts of exercise formats from resistance training to core workouts, running to muscle conditioning. In the group fitness setting, participants find they push themselves harder and generally find they get more enjoyment out of the workouts. This difference is due to the sense of shared dedication to self-improvement that the clients of OC fit body experience. Group exercise is fun, safe, and more often than not provides participants with a variety of class formats to keep them motivated and interested. The social setting of group exercise classes can help keep participants from getting bored because every class session is different. At OC|FIT, not only is their some variety between what trainers lead a given class, but also clients can meet new fellow participants at the wide range of group class times that are available. This means participants never have the same type of workout twice.
Group fitness also holds participants accountable. How many times have you skipped working out a certain part of your body because you either did not know what exercises were most effective, or you simply did not enjoy those types of exercise? With group fitness classes, not only are there infinite variations of exercises to perform but also you are motivated to keep up with the group and try everything—even when a certain muscle group is not your favorite to work. This accountability stretches beyond just encouraging participants to push themselves to try new and more physically demanding exercises. The sense of camaraderie OC|FIT clients feel after just a few sessions with their fellow participants helps to motivate them to come back day after day. Just imagine: it’s 5:00 A.M. and you just would rather stay in bed, or it’s 4:30 P.M. and it has been a crazy day at work. The last thing your tired self wants to do is go workout. Then you think of the inspirational people you worked out with at OC|FIT yesterday and it gives you that extra push to be there, dressed and ready to sweat with them. This sense of a shared passion for fitness is something all OC|FIT clients feel fairly early on and it keeps them coming back for more.
Before you know it, group fitness becomes more than a task to perform each day and it becomes more than a simple habit. Participating in group exercise becomes a way of life. The success of these group fitness classes for individuals who give them a shot indicates just how effective these programs are. The sheer number of success stories and the testimonials from clients speak for themselves. Group fitness helps people feel motivated and eager to participate, forces them to push themselves, and keeps them interested. At OC|FIT these are our goals—at every class—with every client.
Group fitness classes are also beneficial to people with many demanding responsibilities because they are offered throughout the day and thus help even the most busy people fit their daily workout into their schedules. Even if you cannot squeeze in a session in the morning, there are still multiple afternoon options available making it convenient to keep on top of your fitness goals.
