Lucille Roberts - Finding Strength in Numbers

Discover the Power of Team Play for Individual Results

Sometimes taking care of number one, means counting on others for support and guidance. That's why at Lucille Roberts we encourage our members to attend group exercise classes. We've discovered that when it comes to establishing an exercise routine and sticking to it there really is strength in numbers. Our members seem to agree. They have discovered that exercising in a group offers them the following benefits:

Motivation: Did you ever notice how much easier it is to get something done when you're motivated to do it? The same is true of exercise. By joining others, of all different experience levels, our members find they are motivated to work a little harder and garner strength from others.

Camaraderie: A social, fun environment makes it easier to get moving. The time goes faster when you see the same friendly faces in the classes you attend.
Technique: By watching others you can learn a whole lot. The right technique is imperative to getting the most out of your exercise routine .Watching others helps you learn the right techniques for squats, lifting weights, doing push-ups and sit ups, leg lifts, etc.

Challenge: Chances are you will see a lot of the same people in the classes you choose to take. Many exercisers find themselves comparing their abilities to others and challenge themselves to match them. From the number of reps you do, to the weight you use, a little friendly competition pushes you to be the best that you can be.

Consistency: People who exercise in groups tend to return to the gym more often to repeat the same classes. Again, it could be the friendly faces they have grown accustomed to seeing. It might be the encouragement they get from others or the challenge they put on themselves to work harder and better than their neighbor. Regardless of the reason, the result is the same….the more consistent you are, the better the return.

Preventing Boredom: Sometimes doing the same thing, in the same way, can lead to boredom. If you get bored, chances are you won't want to exercise anymore. By choosing a number of different group classes to attend, you'll continuously be providing your body and your mind with new challenges.

According to the American College of Sports Medicine an important fitness trend is group exercise. From aerobics classes to yoga, step classes to basic boot camp, the group that moves together…improves together.
