Being in a group, irrespective of its nature, is one of the best feelings. A sense of unity, belongingness and togetherness are what makes any group awesome.
“Couples who workout together, stay together.”
I’m sure it applies any two or more persons. Friendships and relationships are stronger in bond when they emerge through any sport or physical activity.
Moreover, if your group has presence on social fitness apps like Fitso or Strava where you can compete with your friends having the option of tracking and logging all your fitness activities and competing within yourselves in a fun way, then the results and motivational levels are much higher as opposed to an individual working out on his/her own.
So speaking about the importance and awesomeness of a grouped workout, here are some of the top Health and Fitness Clubs in Bangalore that you should consider if you’re looking to get into a fitness group.
