Top Five Reasons For Exercising with a Friend
Research has consistently shown that exercise is greatly enhanced when you are with a friend or in a group setting. Our new Reformer Classes at Pilates Connection is a great way to exercise with a friend. Here are just five reasons why bringing a friend along to Pilates will give you a boost..
Working along side a friend, is a great way to make the time go faster. It is always fun to chat and laugh while you sweat.
You are less likely to cancel a workout
Exercising with a friend comes with a side benefit: you’ll be more likely to do it. If not, you will be disappointing someone else by cancelling the workout. It is all about accountability, and a good way to remember and carry through on your commitment to enhance your fitness and your health. Just ask yourself, how many times have you made plans and then cancelled them, when you are doing an activity on you own. Yes group pressure really does work.
It Boosts Your Competitive Spirit
A study of 1,000 women found that 64 per cent of those who run, go to the gym or attend group exercise classes with friends will push themselves harder than if they went alone. This in turn has the added benefit of getting more out of your workout and burning more calories.
When exercising, it is a good idea to set goals, if you set a goals with a friend, you are more likely to achieve them.
You Get to Hang Out After the Workout
When you exercise with a friend, it is not only a workout but a social occasion. Many of our clients at Pilates Connection, after a class or a studio appointment, will head down to one of the many great coffee shops in Lane Cove and have a chat and a coffee after class.
