My Opinion on Group Fitness

If you're into fitness, you've likely heard of or participated in a group fitness class. Group fitness classes usually occur in a gym or a studio with 10-30 people and an instructor. During these classes, everybody does the same workout for the same amount of time.

These classes are popular for a lot of reasons. Many people like to do them with friends, while others just like to exercise in groups. Everybody prefers different environments, and that's fine. However, today, I wanted to share my opinion on group fitness and how it may not be the best option if you're looking to achieve a specific goal.

My opinion on group fitness

While everyone prefers different methods of exercise, from my perspective, group fitness is not the best option. In my opinion, there is a difference between working out and training. If you're doing a workout, you're moving your body and getting a general workout. Meanwhile, if you're training, you're following a plan and have certain exercises you need to do for different parts of the body to reach a specific goal. Group fitness falls into the workout category.

Of course, group fitness can be fun, exciting, and motivating on it's own, but it isn't necessarily going to get you the best results or the results you want if you have a specific goal in mind. For example, if your goal is to have fun with friends and do more of a generalized workout, then it could be good for you. However, if you're looking to reach a certain goal, attain a certain body type or aesthetic, lose a certain amount of weight, or gain a certain amount of muscle, group fitness is not the way to go.

This is because group fitness is not custom for you. Everyone is different and has different bodies, so in order to achieve more serious results and not just shed a few pounds, you need something custom fit for you that can matches what you need for your body, weight, age, etc.

So, while any exercise is better than nothing, and you can lose some weight and get some results with it, you might not ever reach your goal because you aren't optimizing your exercise properly.

At the end of the day, if you enjoy group fitness as a fun social activity, that's okay. But in my opinion, it should be an add-on to your normal training routine.
