It's Better to Work Out With Other People Than by Yourself. Here's Why

The benefits go way beyond working up a sweat

Exercise is great for mental health; Research has shown that it can lower stress, improve mood and even decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety. But new research finds that a group exercise class may be even better for your mental wellbeing than a solo sweat session. A small study published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association found that people who took group exercise classes reported less stress and more physical, emotional and mental health benefits than those who exercised alone or did not hit the gym at all, suggesting that a social atmosphere may compound the already numerous benefits of physical activity. At the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, 69 people in their first or second year of medical school—typically a very stressful time—were recruited for the study. One group of students did at least one 30-minute core training class together each week; another exercised alone or with one or two other people at least twice a week; and a third didn’t engage in any physical activity beyond walking or biking for transportation. Students were allowed to choose their own group.

Most people overestimate their calorie burn—often by a lot. (Like enough to overlook an extra everything bagel.) But it’s not your fault.

WHY OUTDOOR CYCLISTS TRAIN INDOORS.

  #1 Control: No Wind. No Stop Lights. No Traffic. “The biggest benefit is the opportunity to get the most out of a structured session.
