They’re generally anywhere between 45-60 minutes (which forces you to work out for a longer period of time), they keep you motivated and serve as a way for you to be social and make new friends who are also interested in staying fit.

Group fitness classes can also affect your eating habits in a healthy way. Here’s how group fitness classes help you maintain your diet and healthy weight.

Classes Are a Source of Constant Reinforcement

Sometimes all we need is a little bit of motivation and positive reinforcement to stay on track with any goal. Being in a group fitness class with people who have the same fitness ambitions helps you see that you’re not making sacrifices on your own. Everyone else in the room is taking time out of their day and working hard throughout the class–and probably watching what they eat as well. Not only that, you have an instructor at the front of the room who motivates you. Being reminded of all the calories you’re burning and the good you’re doing for your body by the person leading the class is excellent motivation to maintain your diet.

Classes Keep You Focused

Group fitness classes are generally non-competitive, friendly places. Go to one and you’ll see that most everyone is in the room for the same reason–to stay in shape or to get in shape. It’s easy to build friendships with people if they regularly take the same classes as you do. It’s also beneficial to maintaining your diet. While classes aren’t competitive, seeing the progress that the people around you are making is enough to keep you focused on being just as disciplined in your diet and exercise as they are–if not more so. Knowing that that gal next to you isn’t swinging through the drive through for a milkshake after an intense kickboxing class will keep you from doing so, too. Even more, if you see someone who looks great in your class, it’s easy to ask him or her for some tips and advice on meals, snacks and overall workout regimens.


Taking part in a group fitness class is a good motivator if you need that extra kick to get started. By belonging to a group, you know that everyone else is striving toward the same goal and pushing to be their best. In addition, belonging to a group allows you to make new friends, who depend on you being there for their support, which gives you another reason for going. This form of fitness has changed a lot, so if you have never tried it or if it’s been a long time since you have joined a group fitness class, give it another chance. You might be surprised !
