Training in a group: 3 reasons why it’s better

Training Together Header UPDATE

When Free Athletes join forces, impossible becomes nothing more than a word. Not only will training in a group boost your motivation and performance, but with other Free Athletes by your side, there‘s no room for excuses.

You become accountable

One of the hardest parts about getting in shape isn‘t completing your workout, but starting it in the first place. It‘s one thing to say you‘re going to stick to your training schedule, but it‘s another thing to actually do it. That‘s why it‘s important to develop a healthy sense of accountability, and there‘s no better way to do so than to team up with other Free Athletes. Having reliable workout buddies increases your chances of sticking to your training, and will no doubt help you (and your training pals) reach your goals faster.

You‘ll be more motivated

There are many ways to motivate yourself and one of the most powerful is buddying up and finding strength in numbers. When you train with others, you not only support each other but add a bit of healthy competition to the mix, which can often be the push you need to keep going. If you feel like you can’t continue, someone in the group will help you see that you can. They’ll keep you going if you want to quit and make you determined to continue.

It’s human nature

Human nature makes us want to spend time with and be around others. And nothing brings people closer than pain, physical suffering and success. By joining a training group, you’re not only getting in shape but you’re also bonding with people who feel the same pain as you. The same success as you. And have a similar goal. Sharing these experiences together makes it even more enjoyable.
