Embracing the Group Mentality

Group X has remained popular for health clubs for one reason: the sense of community it inherently provides. Through Group X, members are able to connect with a group of peers in a challenging yet encouraging workout environment.

“The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) designated group training as No. 2 on its list of the top 10 fitness trends for 2018,” said Mo Hagan, the vice president of program innovation and fitness development at GoodLife Fitness and Canfitpro. “There are so many offerings and so many ways to bring group fitness to the forefront of any club.”

Chances are your club already has Group X programming in some capacity — but there might be a different offering you’re missing out on. Therefore, it’s important to be aware of what’s currently trending in Group X.
