Better with Friends: Benefits of Working Out with Other People
There are so many things that are just simply better when you do them with friends. And now there’s something that’s not only better, but better for you, when done with a supportive group: working out.
Exercising with a group of like-minded people, led by someone who has experience in becoming more fit, is a more effective way of getting and keeping you motivated to improve your health. In fact, working out with others can also push you to push your body in ways that you might not do so on your own. Your competitive nature will quickly kick in when you see stronger people in your class—and realize that you can catch up to them.
And when you’re working out with others, being led by someone who is trained to do what they’re doing, you’re less likely to hurt yourself. The focus instead will be on form, on warming up, on cooling down.
