IT’S OFFICIAL: GROUP FITNESS CLASSES ARE BETTER FOR REDUCING STRESS THAN SWEATING ON YOUR OWN! AND CLASSES ARE INCLUDED IN YOUR YMCA MEMBERSHIP: https://www.wellandgood.com/good-sweat/group-fitness-classes-best-for-stress-relief/

    It's official: Group fitness classes are better for reducing stress than sweating on your own
    When your body and mind aren't on the same page, it's helpful to have a workout buddy who makes showing up to HIIT class more enticing or encourages you to beat your personal record. And if the communal effects of social sweating seem just a little more effective than your solo gym time, it turns out science agrees with you.
