BootCamp: Why We Work Harder In Groups

Do you wonder why you sweat more, push harder, and are sore longer after a group-fitness class? Zumba with the ladies, Kickboxing with the cute instructor, and spinning with that super energetic woman up front are your secret to a better bod. But why?  This phenomenon isn’t just by chance and it’s not just the cute instructor you’re trying to impress; it’s called Social Facilitation. 

Wikipedia defines Social Facilitation as “the tendency for people to do better on simple tasks when in the presence of other people.” It’s actually simple to kick high and spin faster, but when alone you see no reason to push it. It’s all the energy around you, the people watching, or at least the thought of them all watching you, that makes you push it. Wait…what? I’m being duped by just the thought that I’m being watched? Are you telling me that super hot instructor isn’t eyeing me because I’m doing the best in the class? Darnit!

Most people need to be pushed. It takes an immense amount of discipline and dedication to push yourself to your limits when no one is watching. You think to yourself, “Why am I doing this? No one is seeing it.” But they are seeing the results.

Why is my bootcamp the best? Because I care. Because I pay attention to things like above, and want to help you no matter what your reason is for being there. Got a hot date next week? A wedding to tone up for? Or maybe you just want to make friends, have fun, and get fit at the same time…while extracting your inner athlete for all to see. I’m here for you.

What do we do in class? I use bodyweight exercises so that You Are Your Own Gym. In my class, you use the body you have to build the body you want. Forget trying to lift a heavy weight, crank your thighs on that weird machine that makes you do the splits in public, and boring yourself to sleep on that treadmill. My classes are fun and engaging. I mix all sorts of cardio and strength moves, making working out a game, so that you are laughing and having so much fun pushing it that you forget where you are and what you’re doing. Before you know it the workout is over, you’ve burned over 500 calories, and you want more. Believe it or not, every time I say, “That’s it,” people ask for more! They don’t want to go back to life after having so much fun with the hour to themselves – away from their daily stressors and tensors.

So take a chance, realize your limits, and challenge yourself with one of my bootcamp classes.
