Do you enjoy working out on your own, or would you rather be part of a group?

We all know that going to the gym without a friend to spur you on can be hard work. It’s hard enough to exercise in the summer and then winter hits,  and we all go to ground. Even Personal Trainers at times find it hard, so I enjoy working out with my husband Martin. When we were training for our marathons on those cold winter nights, we relied on each other to get out the door after a busy day at work. Going to gyms or pounding the streets on your own, can be a miserable place to be – there’s no one to motivate you or have a chat with.

A recent study in the US, found that participating in a group fitness class led to a “significant decrease in stress and an increase in physical, mental and emotional quality of life”.

By attending a group class, I’ll be able to walk you through each exercise, using the correct technique and urge you on when you think you can’t do another thing. Group workouts are great, because you naturally work harder when people around you are giving it their all. This all means, you will get so much more out of a group workout than going it alone.

A healthy body is important of course, but so is a healthy mind. The social element you get from a group is vital too. Fitbiznow will be scheduling some fun group activities from coffee get-togethers (the first Saturday of each month) to obstacle courses, Christmas outings and plenty more surprises. The pub will be included too – fitness should be fun. When it stops being fun, you run the risk of giving up and that’s simply not going to happen if you pop along to my classes.

If you live in Bedfordshire, I’d love to invite you to my first Group Session on 1st September at Odell Park, Harrold, You can find out all the details here.

Take care and look forward to seeing you soon.
