It’s generally easier to exercise with other people, but a group workout class may seem daunting or intimidating. It’s good to have an idea of what to expect from a group exercise class before you start so that you can feel more at ease when you step through that door.
You Won’t Get It Right Away
The odds are that you’re not going to be the most in-shape person in your class, but you probably won’t be the most out-of-shape person, either. Even if you are, that’s okay! It’s a new class and a new workout routine with which you’re unfamiliar. You’re not there to wow everybody with your impressive natural talent. You’re there to work out. Don’t be afraid to start slow until you get into the swing of it.
No One Is Looking at You
One of the worst things people expect from a group exercise class is that somehow, they’ll humiliate themselves. People fear working out in groups because they think someone might laugh at them for not doing the last two reps or having trouble keeping perfect balance during part of the workout.
But you should remember that everybody’s there to work out. While it’s normal to worry someone might be watching and judging you, most people there will be focusing on their form instead of criticizing yours.
Don’t Be Afraid To Move to a Different Class
For whatever reason, you may feel like a particular class isn’t for you. Maybe you’re not gelling with the group or don’t like the instructor. Perhaps the course you’re in isn’t targeting the specific body parts you’re hoping to work on.
We always recommend taking at least two classes to get a feel for it, but if it’s not working out, don’t be afraid to try another class. Not every instructor will be your ideal motivation source, and exploring other options is okay.
