It is a well-known fact that in a group there is strength. Find out why group training brings such good results. Do you want to lose weight? This is the best way you can choose!
Start training and reach for health!
A fit body is a chance to feel better not only physically but mentally as well. Regular physical activity, even of moderate intensity, is an excellent prevention of civilization diseases. People who exercise several times a week are less likely to suffer from diabetes, obesity or ailments related to the cardiovascular system. As you can see, physical activity brings measurable results and not only in terms of an attractive appearance and slim figure.
If you want to change your current passive way of spending free time for regular sports training, it is time to think about the choice of discipline and type of exercise. People who like company and find themselves well in a group may be tempted to try team sports. Playing soccer, volleyball or basketball, of course at a completely amateur level, is a great way to spend free time and a great workout for fitness.
While with team sports there isn’t much choice in the type of training, with individual sports such as running or fitness there is some freedom in how you train.
Group training – when should you go for it?
There are basically two training options. You can train individually or in a group. Each of these ways has different advantages. Not everyone likes to train in a group, but for many this type of training is a great motivation. When to choose individual training and when to choose group training?
Individual training will be optimal for you if:
- shyness is your middle name,
- you are uncomfortable with group training,
- you are a very organised person,
- you have clearly defined goals,
- you have a strong internal motivation system.
Group training, on the other hand, will be a great solution in a situation when:
- you love being in the company of even complete strangers,
- you enjoy sharing your passions,
- you have a strong need for external motivation,
- you have a strong need for external motivation, it’s hard for you to take up training on your own.
What are the advantages of group training?
The dream of a slim and fit figure can only come true if you combine a healthy and balanced diet with training that is regular and tailored to your body’s capabilities. People who are making their first steps in the world of sport should use the help of a personal trainer to create a training plan. He or she will design training units in such a way so as to achieve optimum results while not overloading the body.
Training in a group can bring much more benefits than individual effort. This type of physical activity is recommended especially for beginners, who should train under the supervision of someone experienced. Besides, a group of people with similar interests is a great motivation to go to classes even on an ugly, rainy day, when the bed has a special power of attraction. During training, you can also exchange interesting insights on how to regenerate your body between training units, or plan a joint trip to a competition. In a group, training is easier, and the desired sporting effects can appear much faster than with individual training.
Shyness – check how to overcome it!
Many people give up the benefits of group training because of their innate shyness. Fear of meeting new people, embarrassment due to excess weight, or inability to find one’s place in a group can be effective blocking factors. If shyness is also a characteristic of yours, try with all your might to break through and take advantage of at least one group training session. The first step is always the hardest, but once you take it, you’ll know it’s definitely worth it!
