The Power of Exercise with the Right Support
For our last blog for Breast Cancer Awareness Month we’re focusing on female empowerment through exercise. However, challenging your life is or how fit you feel, working out can help lift you up and empower you as a woman. At Xercise4Less Gyms we witness the power of exercise when we see our female members working out with the support of other women or exercising with the guidance of our friendly personal trainers.
You can see an example of some of that female superpower in action with our video on YouTube of Xercise4Less women members working out together guided by one of our female personal trainers. Let’s look at a couple of ways you can charge up your energy banks with the support of your fellow women gym members and our fitness staff.
The Many Benefits of Training in a Group of Women
Working out within a group of women can motivate you to ever higher levels of fitness. You’ll be practically able to run a marathon with the energy provided by the encouragement of a female workout group. Exercise is good for everyone, but group exercise has been shown to improve the quality of life even for women being treated for breast cancer. And those group classes offer far more than pulsating music. Training in a group of other women can offer psychological support and social opportunities whether you’re feeling a bit gymtimidated or lacking the motivation to exercise.
Working out in our Female Only gym zone or in the main fitness space, feeling part of a group can boost your physical and emotional health and improve your mental resilience. Exercising in a female group makes you more accountable as you don’t want to let anyone down by not turning up. And it’ll make you more motivated through the friendly support of your fellow women members. You’re more likely too to try new forms of exercise when you’re a part of an encouraging group and that will prevent you from being bored at the gym.
Group fitness classes are popular with women members too as they’re a great place to meet friendly people with similar fitness goals and needs. Plus, it’s a lot more fun to work out alongside other female members rather than on your own. The shared experience of working out with other women in a non-intimidating inclusive environment has a supportive power all of its own.
Exercise Your Personal Right to Better Health
Although it’s a lot of fun to work out with a group of women, you don’t just have to rely on them to reach your fitness targets. A personal trainer can also be a great resource for women trying to improve their health and wellbeing. Setting up a regular session with one of our personal training team is a very useful way of working towards specific fitness goals. As an exercise expert a fitness instructor can show you the most effective ways of setting and then smashing exercise targets. They’ll show you how to maximise your efforts, so you avoid common gym mistakes and prevent you from injuring yourself in the process!
Working one-to-one with our friendly fitness staff, you’ll be able to develop a fitness plan that will work for your individual body. But a personal trainer is more than simply a great resource for female members. Individual training sessions will give you the right tools to feel truly empowered by exercise. When you know what you’re doing in the gym, you can work out the best way forward for yourself, supported where you need it by our personal training staff.
