Group or Solo: Which is the Best Way to Exercise?

By Genevieve Cunningham

Working out is such an individual thing. Everyone likes something different. Some people like their workouts to be super intense -- sweat, sore muscles, the whole shebang. Others like a softer approach -- gentle workouts and less intensity. The key is to figure out which works best for you. But besides the intensity of your workout, there's another big decision to make: Should you work out alone or should you find a group? If you're in search of a good workout routine, take a look at the advantages of each so that you can make the best decision for your health. 

What's Your Personality?

One of the most important things to consider before choosing an exercise route is your own personality. Some people are more social. Some people are more reserved. Some people love sharing the gym, and others prefer it empty when they get their sweat on. What works for you? What makes you the most comfortable and the most motivated? Think about your own personality and preferences before committing to one type of exercise over another. 

Benefits of a Group

There are many benefits of working out with others. When you're in a group, there are other people there to help you stay motivated. People to push you, challenge you, and help you keep going. But there are also people to keep you accountable. Want to skip? You'll be less likely to do so if members of your group reach out to see where you are.  If you're one who thrives on external motivation and accountability, group exercise may be just what you need.

Benefits of Solo

If you're more intrinsically motivated, you may be able to work out completely solo. And there definitely are some perks. When you're all alone, you can work out whenever you feel like it. You don't have to wait on the group or meet anyone at a certain time. You can also do whatever kind of exercise feels good. Don't feel like aerobics today? Maybe you can go for a run instead. When you work out alone, there's a lot more flexibility. If you're able to internally push yourself, working out alone may not be a bad choice. 

There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to exercise. If you prefer the group, choose that. If you prefer to go it alone, do that. The key is to get up and do it! Find a group, go solo, or change it up so that you can improve your health and feel a little healthier every single day.
