Finding the motivation to get up and go to the gym every day isn’t always easy. When you exercise alone, you don’t feel the need to push as hard, and if you’re social, working out by yourself can be very lonely. Exercising alone isn’t for everyone. In a group workout session, you are driven by your peers to work hard. At Bombay Jam, our dance workout class provides you with a challenging, fun and social workout experience. We promise to motivate you with our Bollywood-inspired choreography and our mixes of Bollywood and Top 40 flavored music.
Still not sure about group exercise? We have provided you with four reasons why group exercise leads to good habits!
In our dance workout class, you won’t only be learning new dance moves, but you will be having the time of your life in this immersive Bollywood-inspired group experience!
Have No Fear
According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) group exercise facilitates positive social interaction, greatly diminishing social anxiety. Because people are actively participating in the activity together, there isn’t any time to worry about missing a step wrong or doing the wrong move. It’s the experience of the exercise that instead becomes important. Once everyone is having fun together there’s no time to stop and worry in our dance workout class; you’re on the go, go go!
Distraction = Death
When you’re working out by yourself, it’s easy to get distracted. Whether that’s because you can’t find the right music to listen to or your five-year-old wants to play hide-and-seek while you’re exercising at home, these distractions turn into interruptions that become your reason to quit. Instead of trying to continue with our exercise goals we give up, saying it’s too hard or that we just don’t have the time. But it’s all about making time. The solution is to center yourself and realize the importance of exercising in a space dedicated to working out. With group exercise, you not only find your space, but you find your team.
Exercising Right = Better Health
It’s hard to maintain motivation when we are working out by ourselves. Because exercise and training is a process, you don’t readily recognize the changes in your health. If it seems like we’re not meeting our goals, we begin to wonder what the point of it all is. This is where group exercise comes in to save us. Because we have made a pact with our instructor and peers, we fight through our slump and hit the ground running once more.
With an unstructured exercise regimen, we are more willing to break our goals. But when we have signed up for a class that we have paid and set time aside for, we are accountable to attend. We have not only given our money to participate in the group exercise, but we have given our word that we will all be working towards the same goal: better health.
“A” for Effort
Exercise classes provide stability and training for people who have limited experience with certain methods and who appreciate sticking to a daily or weekly regimen of exercise. A structured exercise environment provides people with a sense of safety and uniformity. The YMCA of Silicon Valley suggests that group exercise classes push people to meet a goal. The feeling of being surrounded by a group of people all working towards the same endgame, in addition to having an instructor who supports the class with words of encouragement and hands-on training makes all the difference in the effort and commitment you’ll put forth in your fitness efforts.
