Ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in The Jour­nal of the Amer­i­can Os­teo­pathic As­so­ci­a­tion, peo­ple work­ing out in a group low­ered stress and sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved qual­ity of life, com­pared to those who ex­er­cised in­di­vid­u­ally. Those par­tic­i­pat­ing in group ex­er­cise spent 30 min­utes at least once a week in a core strength­en­ing and func­tional fit­ness train­ing pro­gram. At the end of 12 weeks, their men­tal, phys­i­cal, and emo­tional scores im­proved sig­nif­i­cantly. They also re­ported a 26.2 per­cent re­duc­tion in per­ceived stress lev­els. By com­par­i­son, soli­tary ex­er­cis­ers worked out twice as long, and saw no sig­nif­i­cant changes, ex­cept in men­tal qual­ity of life (11 per­cent in­crease). “The com­mu­nal ben­e­fits of com­ing to­gether with friends and col­leagues, and do­ing some­thing dif­fi­cult, while en­cour­ag­ing one an­other, pays div­i­dends be­yond ex­er­cis­ing alone,” con­cludes Dayna Yorks, DO, lead re­searcher on this study.
