How to Form a Successful Workout Group

 

How to Form a Successful Workout Group

Whether you are looking to form a group to tackle the gym, go for a walk, or make running a social event, studies have shown working out with others benefits you in a myriad of ways. Finding the perfect group can often be a challenge, so I’ve found it’s easier just to start your own! Be sure to consider the following when putting together your group.

Escape Your Comfort Zone
A great way to improve your fitness levels and challenge your limits is by forming a workout group. This will help you spark the flame of competition and realize improvements in no time. If you’ve been comfortable with working out by yourself, take the risk in joining others and enable them to hold you accountable.

Size Matters
Depending on the type of exercise you will be embarking on, you have to decide on a manageable size of your workout group. With relation to size you also have to figure out how much space you have available for the group exercise. Outdoor running or boot camp exercises can easily be practiced outside or at your local park.

It’s better to start out with a smaller group and see how things evolve instead of making it your goal to immediately grow the numbers.

Set a Time and Date
In order for your members to stick to the program, they have to be aware of the time and dates your exercise sessions will take place. Decide how many days per week the group will meet and choose a time that will suit everyone involved. This way you will be able to hold each other accountable and reach your goals together.

Consider Others
When forming a fitness group, you have to consider the preferences of all the individuals. Either choose a specific exercise to focus on, or allow the members to make suggestions as to which exercises you will be doing. A group of experts might be able to teach each other new methods of exercise, giving everyone the chance to push their fitness levels.

If you want a group to help you train for a particular fitness event, limit the group members to those individuals aiming to reach the same goal.

Establish a Leader
Even though these workout groups don’t always need to be serious or intense, it does help to establish a leader. It is all about utilizing the group’s strengths and weaknesses. One member might enjoy managing the admin, routines, or calendar and another might be the positive-minded motivator. Work with what and who you have to reach success.

What makes groups you’ve been a part of in the past, successful?

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
