Another great couple of classes to kick start the week.
We welcomed a few new people to the core conditioning class as well as a full house for the kettlebell class. Neither class was a walk in the park but everyone stepped up and pushed themselves. Well done guys.
It got me thinking as to why classes are so effective and why people enjoy them so much.
The penny dropped……it’s all about the community and support.
Watching our clients before, during & after each class I realised that many of them had only met once or twice, yet they’re we’re happily chatting away like old friends. Conversations about the status of the kitchen makeover and how the weekend away was were all being batted about. I actually felt bad about interrupting them to start the class!
We’ve all done it, we want to go a class or the gym but feel a bit silly & intimidated or just not confident about what you’re doing.
Not so with classes. One of the keys to success with exercise & nutrition is having support and where better to find that than in a class setting. Let’s face it everyone is there for the same reason whether that be weight-loss, shaping up or being fitter. There is something so positive in the camaraderie of not doing it alone. All of a sudden you find that you’re not the only person that feels a silly, is not sure what they’re doing or has come a sticking point in achieving their goal. You find other people that you can bounce ideas off, have fun with and even provide some healthy competition!
The bonus to this community is that suddenly exercise becomes fun and you want to do it. You even find that you start to achieve you goals all because of the community & support.
