As you work toward a fitness goal, you might expect a solo journey. But it doesn’t have to be. There is a huge benefit to working out with others who share similar goals and interests. And one of the most significant benefits is accountability.
Here are four ways to increase accountability through group workouts:
1. The workouts are scheduled.
One way that group workouts increase accountability is through scheduled classes. Rather than working out “whenever you feel like it,” a workout class gives you specific days and times. Knowing when you’ll attend a scheduled class helps you create a solid workout routine. Make your workouts a priority by scheduling them in your calendar just as you would with any other appointment.
2. The community is supportive.
While some people prefer to work out on their own, others appreciate the social aspect of group classes. Joining in for these classes introduces you to a community full of supportive people working toward a similar goal. When you have that sense of support, you’re more likely to keep showing up and challenging yourself to work toward new fitness goals.
3. You’ll meet a workout buddy or two.
Within that supportive community, you’ll likely meet a few people who become your workout buddies. These people will notice when you don’t show up to class. And when you’re tempted to hit snooze on your alarm, you might hear their voices encouraging you to get out of bed and to the gym.
4. Quality, consistent workouts lead to results.
Group classes also increase accountability by providing quality workouts that bring you closer to getting results. Knowing that a knowledgeable instructor will take you through an effective workout might make you more motivated to show up. Quality workout programming from a good coach builds consistency and accountability.
