Healthy Competition
A good dose of friendly competition can go a long way when you’re working out. With the extra boost of healthy rivalry, you’re more likely to push yourself further, reach goals faster, and stay committed to the class longer. Remember that everyone is at a different stage of fitness, and no two people will have the exact same results. But, there’s no harm in hedging a friendly fitness bet on who can shimmy and shake the longest during Zumba class
Support and Motivation
If you’re new to exercising, dread working out on the gym floor, or just looking to mix up your routine a little - a group fitness class is the perfect choice. As part of a group the playing field is more even and you’ll feel less awkward (because everyone else is feeling the same way). As everyone begins to learn together, you’ll find that a class provides motivation and support to keep you going strong. Whether you're looking to lose weight or just want to improve your fitness, this extra support and motivation can be the push you need to stay on track.

New Friendships
Although becoming healthy and strong is the main goal, you may end up walking away with an equally valuable gift; a new friend! There’s something about sharing an experience together that can leave lasting impression on both people - marking a new friendship. You’re spending a few hours a week with these people, after all, so be open to the possibility that you may actually gain something from the class, instead of just losing weight!
