If so, you are not alone. That's why there is a section on Craigslist dedicated specifically to 'Activity Partners'. Working out can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be boring and lonely. Group fitness classes are the perfect solution. Here are a few reasons why group fitness classes are beneficial:
Motivation: A little encouragement from an instructor or fellow classmate and positive atmosphere can help you keep up your level of workout intensity.
Competition: Healthy competition helps most people deliver their best effort. Challenging a workout buddy can help you both do more than you would have done on your own. Example, Let's both master our superman today!
Community: Enduring a challenging workout together is a great way to develop new friendships.
Accountability: When you’re part of an exercise group, others will know when you miss a workout. You’ll be less likely to skip a group class when others are counting on you.
Structure: An instructor led workout is more likely to be a well planned, complete workout. On your own you might be tempted to skip exercises you don’t like or aren’t sure how to perform correctly.
Fun: A good group exercise class will encourage a sense of play. If you’re smiling and sweating at the same time your intensity will be higher and you’ll realize better results.
