Exercising can be intimidating. Gyms are loud places, filled with sweaty people who seem like they know exactly what they’re doing. And as for you – you might be feeling alone. Group fitness holds the answer to all of your anxieties; let Holloway Sportswear explain how.
Count me in. Accountability is one of the most important components to group fitness. After sweating and grimacing with the same people week after week, a strange sort of camaraderie begins to form. This bond becomes a source of motivation to get you through the doors of the gym, which can sometimes be the hardest part. In fact, dare we say it, you may even look forward to your group fitness classes.
Push it. Chances are, you don’t know what you’re capable of. Group fitness classes can get you off that workout plateau. Sometimes all it takes is an instructor in front of you or a friend alongside of you to push you toward running that extra minute, or finishing that last set. In some cases, people feel a sense of competition which can help them further their fitness goals. Although pushing yourself harder than you thought possible is something you are capable of doing on your own, it’s much safer to do in the company of a knowledgeable instructor. Remember that safety is always the number one priority when it comes to exercise.
Fitness friendship. Community is a vital part of any lifestyle-changing decision. In group fitness you are provided a community that shares most of the same lifestyle goals and needs. You may have more in common than you even realize. This fosters the perfect environment to not only give but receive encouragement and energy. Have we mentioned yet that group fitness is fun? Does it get better than having fun with your friends? Yeah, we don’t think so either.
Instead of letting all of your workout gear collect dust in your closet, take advantage of the classes that your local gym offers. There is a group fitness class for everyone, whether you’re looking for some relaxing yoga or total body tone. Holloway knows that group fitness is a beneficial way of staying active, and will help you with the rest when it comes to getting the right gear. So get out there, build community, push yourself further, and let Holloway help you along the way.
