Exercising with other people is motivating and boosts happiness


How do you feel when you are exercising by yourself as compared to when you exercise with with a group of friends? I know that I love group exercise, whether it’s with my cycling buddies at Cactus Cycling or Syncardia, with my hiking group on Friday mornings, or swimming or lifting with a friend. Working out with others creates good energy, is motivating, distracts from physical discomfort, instills a sense of communal belonging, provides social benefits, and releases endorphins – those hormones that create euphoric sensations.

With all of these feel-good sensations derived from group exercise…it’s a no brainer. So grab a friend and get out there!
