Exercise in a Social Setting
✅✑ ADD FUN TO HEALTH
Even the most varied of exercises can become stale and uninspiring. Sometimes, finding a way to stay motivated to workout can be challenging even for those most dedicated to fitness, but exercise in a social setting just may make the difference.
A recent study has shown that working out in a group setting can add more fun to workouts, and possibly create little healthy competition.
According to researchers Sphink and Carron (2008), “Membership in cohesive groups has a powerful influence on individual behaviors such as adherence and conformity.” People who exercise in a social setting provide each other with support, helpful praise, and are more consistent in their exercise routine.
✅✑ SCHEDULE A COMMUNITY WALK
People in the neighborhood may enjoy a specific time to gather with friends and walk as a supportive and motivating group.
Exercising in a social setting can also alleviate boredom and provide a positive outlook on life. Schedule a 30 minute walk with others that are interested in the benefits of an aerobic activity.
Walking promotes the movement of large muscle groups, helps strengthen bones, and provides good brain chemicals that reduce anxiety and improve mood.
✅✑ JOIN A DANCE CLASS AT A LOCAL COMMUNITY CENTER
If exercising in the gym is getting repetitious, or working out alone is becoming to sedate, join a dance or exercise class at a community center. Dancing is a fun exercise that will burn calories and brighten your spirit.
Moving to music is an excellent way to stimulate “feel good” brain chemicals that make you want to exercise more. Dancing with others promotes a social atmosphere of fun and may re-energize an exercise routine.
✅✑ HAVE A HOME FITNESS PARTY
For more healthy social interaction, invite friends to workout in or outdoors. Sharing home gym equipment, such as free weights, treadmills, or ellipticals with friends can spice up an activity and add fun to working out.
Playing exercise videos outdoors and working out as a group can make cardio training more pleasurable. People who are engaged in enjoyable activities tend to perform them longer and more often. Variations in activities are welcomed and beneficial at home fitness parties.

✅✑ JOIN A SPINNING CLASS WITH FRIENDS
Indoor cycling is one of the best ways to strengthen legs and slim down. Calories burn quickly on cycles and build heart muscle.
Spin to the music and enjoy the healthy social interaction of friends and fellow exercisers. The bikes can be set at any pace and there is no danger of lagging behind or not keeping up with the group.
As people improve their performance, the dramatic weight loss ensues. Most people invest in a cushioned seat that provides a comfortable ride. Spinning is one of the most effective cardio exercises that can be performed at a safe level with a low risk of injury.
✅✑ EXERCISING WITH OTHERS INCREASES WORKOUT TIME
Working out with others may increase the time of the exercise session, has a supportive component, and makes an exercise routine more enjoyable.
To alleviate boredom and re-energize a workout routine, include friends or join a group in a local community or gym. Exercise is an integral part of physical and mental health that keeps the body disease free and resilient against chronic conditions.
For a brighter mood and a more enjoyable quality of life, exercise with friends with creative and effective strategies.
