If the only workout you’ve done over the past few months is beating yourself up for not working out, it’s time to forgive, forget and move on. The time has come to remove yourself from the couch cushions and get moving! Starting a fitness program is one of the best things you can do for your overall health and well-being. Physical activity can help reduce your risk of chronic disease, improve your balance and coordination, help you lose weight, and even improve your sleep habits and self-esteem. And there’s even more good news! Our experts at Woman’s Center for Wellness make it simple by providing a fitness program that combines nutrition and fitness all into one.
Woman’s BALANCE Program offers a personalized fitness program that focuses on real food, fitness, and coaching to help you reach your fitness goals. That’s right! Our talented team of fitness and nutrition experts takes all of the guess work out to provide you with a fitness program that meets your wants and needs. We also know that starting a fitness program alone can be tough, so BALANCE offers group programs, enhancing the experience with the benefits of working with others, like extra motivation and friendly competition.
Here are some ways the group program can help you succeed in reaching your goals:
Motivation and Accountability
If you’re having trouble getting to the gym in the first place, a group program may be just the motivation you need. Knowing you’d be canceling on your group or team provides a more valuable incentive for pushing excuses to the side and showing up. Our trainers have noticed that solo participants are more likely to miss or reschedule their appointments than participants in groups. They also say that exercising with others encourages participants to push past the discomforts that are actually growth and improvements. Let’s face it, we all try a little harder when others are trying too!
Competition and Camaraderie
Everyone is “in it together” in a group program, which naturally lends itself to camaraderie among participants. For people who enjoy being social, this is a big factor! Those who are more competitive also benefit from a group program, as the group provides a level of friendly competition, which can help push participants to work harder.
Everyone Knows Something
Here’s the thing, you don’t know what you don’t know. And starting a fitness program comes with a lot of questions and concerns – we get it! The BALANCE program works to reduce these worries by providing ample access to health coaches, fitness trainers, and nutrition experts; but even better, the group program allows participants to learn from each other. Sharing what you know with a group member, who then shares something they know with you, is a fantastic way to improve outcomes and helps empower participants. Group programs also allow participants to share experiences, share what’s possible, and inspire each other along the journey.
The BALANCE group program is a great way to find motivation and accountability, while working with a team who can provide assistance to help you get results. Click here to learn more about the BALANCE program and how you can get started. Go on! We promise you won’t be disappointed.
