Top 20 Reasons Group Fitness Rocks

“It’s a lot easier to be motivated and guided by another human when it comes to working out.” That goes double when you’re working out with a whole group!

Group fitness classes do more than just help you burn calories and sweat; there’s a sense of community involved that helps keep you motivated and accountable, while offering a sense of camaraderie in a world where human interaction is otherwise disappearing bit by bit… especially this past year.

“…Group fitness fosters connection to other people.”

One study from the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association found that people who workout in a group have a higher quality of life than people who work out alone - and a 26% lower stress rate.

Another research study examining solo workouts versus group fitness found similar results, plus a few more — showing that the benefits of group fitness go far beyond just physical results.

Group Fitness Participants:

  • Mental +12.6%

  • Physical +24.8%

  • Emotional +26%

  • Stress -26.2%

Individual Fitness:

  • Mental +11%

All around, the individuals who participated in group fitness saw higher levels of benefits than those who went the solo route.
