Has your solo workout left something to be desired? Working out with a group online could be just the boost you need!

Here are some ways online exercise groups can keep you motivated to get, or stay, fit:

Instructors radiate motivation. Instructors live for exercise. Once they are in front of a class, their passion and excitement are amplified. Instructors try to lead by example, correct form, encourage their class to keep moving and answer health questions along the way.

It’s convenient. By exercising online, you don’t have to dedicate your time to commuting. You can workout anywhere, which adds convenience to your fitness lifestyle.

It gives you something to look forward to. When an online group class is added to your schedule, it becomes a part of your weekly routine. Some classes are categorized from beginner to advanced. Others are organized by activities, such as dance, boxing, yoga and more. All you have to do is pick the one that interests you the most.

You can connect with new and old friends. Hanging out in a group, even a virtual one, can be fun for everyone. If you are not inclined to workout, the excitement of seeing someone you know may be just what you need to get moving.

It builds confidence and guarantees safety. Exercises can be complicated. When you follow an online group, you are able to watch the instructor and your classmates to learn proper techniques — all while staying at home.

It adds variety to your routine. When you follow the same routine over and over, it’s easy to get bored, tired or demotivated. Yet, online group programs often incorporate a variety of exercises that make the workout more enjoyable.

Exercising with an online group can inspire you to keep moving and make your exercise routine more enjoyable. Give it a try. You might find out you’ve been missing out on something you love — and that’s good for your health.
