The Benefits of Working Out in a Group

Most of us need motivation to go to the gym and work out on a regular basis, but there’s a simple solution for that. Group fitness classes are the perfect solution to this issue and you should definitely give them a try. If you still need more convincing, continue reading this article for reasons why you should give them a shot.

Motivation Boost

Exercising with a bunch of other people who share the same goal as you is more fun than working out on your own. Achieving your goals is so much easier when you’re surrounded by people who will support you when you need it the most.


When you pay to attend a certain number of classes per week, chances are that you won’t make excuses to skip any of them. Your accountability will also increase when you know that other people from your group will be there. This way you’ll exercise on a regular basis and see improvements sooner.

We have the relationship with others that we are having with ourselves.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ A big takeaway from @stralayoga Berlin 300+ was real self-care, taking responsibility for your self, in relationship with those you guide, and of course everyone. You can't be one person some of the time, and flip a switch to be an angel when you want to be perceived that way. How we are is how we are. You can't put on a yoga costume, or extra accessories to mask your energy. What we see is you. What we feel is how you feel about yourself. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This is really great to experience and man it will hit you heavy when you do. What are your habits that hold you back? Where do you hold tension you don't need? Your main job is to take responsibility for yourself. Have compassion for yourself to have compassion for others. Move in alignment with yourself to guide others to move better. Be moveable in order to achieve. Soften in order to be strong. Make a good connection with yourself to make a good connection with others.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Stop the cycle of abuse by using discernment and not going along with systems and leaders that abuse. ⁠⠀ ⠀ We are all leaders and followers. Improve how we are and we will move in a great direction, together.⠀ ⁠⠀ Your time is now, always. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Next stop London for a weekend of ease, moving in alignment with our self, and dropping the habits that no longer serve us. Aug 17-18. 👆🏼 Link in bio if you feel pulled to join. ⁠🌱⠀ ⁠⠀ #stralayoga #yogalife #londonyoga ⁠#stralaberlin #yogatraining ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀
