One of the largest fitness trends in 2018 is group exercising, a workout with around 5 or more people. Exercising within a group can vary from peaceful yoga in the park, in which you simply focus on your body’s strength and flexibility, to an exhausting spin on the bike. So rather than exercising alone whilst listening to the same repetitive music, get a few friends or training buddies together and enjoy exercising together. There are many benefits of doing so!
Group exercising not only improves your physical performance and fitness, it also gives you an amazing mood boost and will enhance your overall wellbeing. It creates an incredibly sociable, fun and even competitive atmosphere. I always find that when I am exercising in a group there is a great sense of team spirit with everybody supporting each other to reach their goals and to test new limits.
If you discover any new exercises, you can share and try these with your friends, reaping the physical and mental benefits together. Group exercising provides a forum for you to share your exercise routine and discuss with another person what exercise works well and what doesn’t, which is the most challenging and which is your favourite, and so on.
With friends and training buddies by your side, you will be motivated to push towards your personal fitness goals. It is evident that training within a group applies just the right amount of pressure so that people are less likely to let each other down. I know I always feel bad, embarrassed even, when I stop or take it easy for a few seconds during a spin class when all my friends are working hard. You will be supported and motivated by your friends to exercise harder and for longer, pushing through the physical and mental barriers of exercise.
Every month Nutri Heroes will be releasing lots of new videos of exercises in all sorts of different disciplines, so don’t miss out on sharing these with your training buddies. Once you experience training as a group, you will be hooked and will never look back!
