Group Exercise Advantages:
Let’s take a look at some of the advantages and disadvantages of group exercise right now. There are other forms of working out that are available at this time, of course. Not the least of which includes private personal training and online training options. However, let’s focus on group exercise for the time being.
To start out, let’s look at some of the advantages of group exercise. For one thing, doing group exercise classes comes with a whole lot of accountability when you compare it to simply signing up for a gym and expecting yourself to show up consistently to do a workout routine that you have to come up with. Working out alone means there is no one at the gym to help hold you accountable to showing up. Since most of us don’t hold ourselves accountable very well, and that’s just human nature, a group training program can help you to show up more consistently because there are other people holding you accountable for showing up.
The number of people who may end up holding you accountable to showing up for a group exercise varies. This is because some of the folks expecting you to show up to a group exercise class could just be the friends that you make along the way while you are doing a group training program. You may end up having 5-10 people who you work out with regularly who will start to expect that you show up to your chosen class time. This will only help to keep you motivated to show up to your class. Simply showing up consistently is one of the biggest things in between most gym members and actually achieving their health and fitness goals.
The other person who is going to help ensure that you show up to your group training sessions is the trainer who runs the group. This accountability is only going to help you to show up more. Another benefit of a group exercise program is that you don’t have to come up with your own fitness routine every time that you go in for a workout. This is an incredible time saver. Not only that, but you also get the benefit of knowing that the time you are spending doing a workout is not wasted, because a professional has put together the entire group training routine, and all you need to do is to show up.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the disadvantages of group exercise. One disadvantage of group exercise as compared to personal training is that you will get less one on one time from the fitness trainer in a group training scenario as opposed to a personal training scenario. On the other hand, you will get more personalized advice from a professional trainer during group exercise sessions as compared to an online training session. Here at Kvell Fitness and Nutrition, each of our trainers is qualified to help everyone in their group exercise classes achieve their specific health and fitness goals.
Are you the kind of person who likes to work out everyday? Let’s take a look at that and some other aspects of group exercise programs right now. One of the disadvantages of exercising everyday is that you will find yourself in danger of hitting burn out. One thing that makes a lot of people successful at achieving their fitness goals is pacing. If you just start something off, it is important to pace yourself. Not all fitness programs require you to approach it like a sprint. Most workout routines are more of a marathon. This is because truly working out to improve your health is a long term game. At Kvell, we are mostly interested in helping you to get the body that you need in order to live the life you want to live.
Let’s keep looking at some of the advantages and disadvantages of group exercise. One of the advantages is that you get to have accountability from your friends who are working out with you on a regular basis. One of the disadvantages of group exercise is that if you work out everyday right out of the gate, then you might burn yourself out. Breaking down your health and fitness goals in such a way that allows you to have small, easy to achieve, goals that you can do on a daily basis is the key to not burning out. Start out small and build from there. For most people, working out 3 times per week is enough. If you want to work out more frequently than 3 times per week, then we suggest that you take it fairly easy when it comes to those extra workouts. This applies to the type of group workouts that we offer here at Kvell Fitness and Nutrition.
Group Personal Training:
So, what are some of the benefits and challenges of group personal training? Let’s take a look at some of those right now. One of the benefits of group training is that you get to work out with all of your friends. Working out in a community has been proven to help when it comes to keeping you coming back every time for your group exercise program. Showing up on a regular basis is one of the biggest things in between most people and actually achieving their fitness goals.
Another major benefit to doing group training is that you get a training professional to monitor your progress and keep you on track when it comes to the technicalities of doing each and every fitness movement. Check out what we have going on here at Kvell to see if our group fitness program will match your health and fitness needs.
Our program has been known to benefit anyone who is looking to increase their flexibility and general energy levels by working out. Another thing that our group training sessions offer is a preplanned and effective routine every time that you do a workout. The fact that someone else has put in all the needed thought and time to plan out every work out that you do puts group exercise programs far ahead of many other workout options when it comes to the advantages column.
What are the Benefits of Group Training:
Let’s talk about some of the mental benefits of group exercise now. You get a great mental boost when you are working out with your friends. This is because doing things in a group motivates most people far more than they could motivate themselves while doing a workout alone at a gym.
One of the cons of group exercise is that it has to be done at a specific time. With our group sessions here at Kvell, we schedule set times when we do our 45 minute group training sessions. Everyone can book which group training session they want to be a part of by using our app. Then, everyone can come together at the set time and do their group exercise routine. This does mean that, unlike when you just use your gym membership to go and do a fitness routine you came up with, that you can’t just go tot he gym at any time that you want.
Let’s take a peek at some of the benefits of group exercise for older adults. One of the great things about doing group workouts that built correctly is that each and every movement is scalable so that everyone can do each step of the fitness routine. For example, here at Kvell, we take every movement and break it down into 3 different levels. So a push up, a sit up, or a pull up can all be scaled into various levels of difficulty in order to make sure that everyone can do the same workout routine.
There are also ways to incorporate partner or group activities into the session when it comes to working out in a group. You can work out consistently with your partner when you both join the same group exercise program. That accountability can really help a lot of people to achieve their health and fitness goals much faster than if they were just working out on their own. Also, you can get your friends to come and work out with you when you go to a group fitness session on a regular basis. If fitness and being healthy for life is your goal, then a group workout program just might be the key to you achieving success in your fitness journey. Make sure that you sign up for the group fitness program that fits you best so that you can the most out of your workout!
