Teamor­i­en­tated work­outs

Women's Fitness (UK) - - Fitness -

WHAT? Gym spa­ces such as Un1t, whose slo­gan is ‘we train as one’, don’t rely on an in­struc­tor to keep the ses­sion rolling – it’s down to the group them­selves. Un1t of­fers classes fo­cused on car­dio, strength, and mo­bil­ity – but you won’t make it to the end with­out team­work. One of its classes, for ex­am­ple, uses who­ever is on the sled as a timer – as long as it takes them to do their runs is how long the rest of the team works, too.

WHY? Stud­ies con­sis­tently show that work­ing out with friends is bet­ter than go­ing solo: Re­search car­ried out by Vir­gin Ac­tive found that friends who ex­er­cise to­gether were shown to train for longer, burn more calo­ries, and visit their health club more reg­u­larly. Un1t’s con­cept pro­motes an at­mos­phere that nur­tures you to go above and be­yond your limit – sounds like our kind of work­out! WHERE? Un1t Lon­don in Ful­ham and Lon­don Bridge, from £20, unit­lon­don.co.uk. FUN FACT: Fit­ness in­flu­encer Zanna Van Dijk is a trainer here!
