Being in the presence of others improves individual task performance. When you work out in a group you will work harder, and push yourself more than you would exercising alone.
Getting yourself to a group fitness class often means you’ve had to sign up or add a time for exercise to your schedule. This becomes a commitment to yourself, the instructor and even other participants. The more often you make this commitment, the more it becomes part of your routine. This helps with adherence and consistency, one of the most important factors to long term success toward your health goals.
Your group fitness instructor will take all the guess work out of planning an effective program. You can leave class feeling successful and accomplished. The predictability of pre-choreographed formats (like Surge Fit and Surge Strength) allows participants to effectively gauge their intensity and measure their improvement overtime (like trying one more burpee, or picking up heavier weights).
Humans are social beings, engaging in group activities satisfies our innate need for connection and belonging and ultimately enhances long term adherence to exercise.
Witnessing others pushing their limits can be incredibly motivating. The increased energy that flows through a group makes the class appear to go by quicker, and easier than it may seem alone.
Most importantly, working out in a group is FUN! As kids we all enjoyed exercise in the form of sports and play; As adults we often forget that working out doesn’t have to be a chore! Exercise and enjoyment both lead to endorphin release, these natural mood boosters, make us feel even more elated post-workout.
In essence, group fitness leverages the power of community, accountability, and motivation, all backed by science, to deliver effective workouts. Surge Fit offers options for every fitness level, so whether you are a group fitness veteran or your are just getting your feet wet, come experience the magic for yourself!
