Small Group Workouts Work
Happy Friday - or as we say in class, happy Fri-YAY!
We made it to the end of another week. I am not sure about you, but I wouldn’t have made it through the last 2 years with my mental health intact without my morning workouts. The participants that train with me here in the studio and virtually have kept me sane. We are all grinders who can’t get enough of the functional movement and strength that are fused together in the various morning classes. The classes are also efficient because we are always multi-tasking by doing two things at once (think lunges while doing bicep curls, etc.) great for busy executives and busy Moms. Some come twice a week, some three and a few aim for five days a week. Even if they cannot complete the entire class, they show up, do what they can and then get back to their day.
Consistency is key and the busiest people are the ones finding the time to fit fitness in. When things first shut down I dipped my toe into Zoom and went all Virtual, well after I realized this wasn’t going to be just two weeks. This morphed into a combination of In Person and Virtual that has now become the norm. As people trickle back in by ones and twos we are finally getting back. Both options are always available.
The morning routine kicks the day of right: we sweat, lift, laugh and tease through the entire class. I really love these people who have supported me through this crazy two year pandemic. They have been there 100%
Exercise affects everything, it makes such a difference mentally, and we are building a little community here. The encouragement and tips we all give each other are so valuable. The little outdoor group will be back again this Spring….looking forward to that! All Moms, all encouragement and support, it’s a beautiful thing to be a part of. Studies show that participants are more likely to train consistently when they train together in a small group. We all have fitness and wellness goals, and the support and camaraderie helps everyone feel better. It’s powerful.
