The Benefits of Group Fitness

“If you want to go faster, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” -African proverb

Perhaps getting your sweat on with a new group of people you’re not familiar with doesn’t sound that appealing — on the other hand, it might just be the challenge you need to finally achieve the fitness breakthrough that changes your life! Group fitness is an aspect of The Union in San Antonio that we believe has tremendous value, and we think we can convince you to join us! Here are four great benefits to experiencing group fitness in Texas:


Get Motivated and Inspired

Group fitness is extraordinarily motivating! While you might’ve stalled while trying to hit that last rep while working out solo, you’ll find that the strength you needed was there all along when you have friends cheering you on! The wonderful thing about a group fitness setting is that there is no pressure to be “the best” — you’re all working towards the same goal. There will always be someone stronger or faster than you, but when you’re working together, this can be used to inspire, not discourage. We will always go further together.


Perfect Your Form

All of our group fitness classes are led by experienced, enthusiastic, and friendly trainers. These men and women are incredible assets and allies when it comes to getting your form correct, avoiding injury, and getting the most out of your fitness routine. A group setting with a knowledgeable trainer is the perfect balance between working out alone and hiring a one-on-one personal trainer. You get the motivation of getting fit with a group of supportive people, as well as the focused attention of a fitness professional.


Engage With Your Fitness Community

There’s something special about being a part of a community of people who are all working towards the same goal — better fitness, better health, and better lifestyles. When you participate in group fitness, the person to your right and the person to your left are on the same health journey that you are. You can find the support and guidance you need from your fellow “travelers,” who are also looking for support from you! When you’re part of a fitness community at The Union, there will always be somebody who has your back.


Mutual Accountability

Almost anyone will tell you that the hardest technique to master in getting exercise is walking out your door to go to the gym. When you exercise as part of a group, your presence is valued — and your absence is noticed. When you develop an expectation with your classmates to persevere with your fitness goals, we believe you’ll find it easier and easier to make the choice to leave the house and join your fitness community at The Union!

Your road to a better life and a healthier lifestyle is easier when you take the journey with friends. Experience the difference that group fitness makes by getting started with The Union! With three locations in San Antonio, there’s a group of people waiting for you to fill the empty spot in their fitness class!
