Exercise Happy Hours: A Game Changer Or Flash In The Pan?

Life is full of new beginnings and newer avenues and fitness is not averse to this rule. Time and again, people have invented unique techniques and ways to keep themselves fit. Be it Yoga, thousands of years ago or Line dancing which caught the public eye in the 90’s.

Couple of years back a new routine arrived on the block and has quietly made its presence felt. Wondering what that is? It’s “Exercise Happy Hours”. But hold your galloping horses for a second, because we are about to dive into the details to see whether it is the real deal or just a marketing gimmick.

Group Exercise

Sounds cool! Tell me more about it

You might have heard of happy hours in bars, restaurants and amusement parks, but fitness studios and gyms? Surprised aren’t you? But fitness centers across the world are trying to cash in on this new rage. Simply put, it is a form of exercise routine where the participants indulge in group physical activities inside the gym with party atmosphere to go with it.

The essence of this activity lies in making exercise fun with friends inside the gym instead of boozing at the bar on a Saturday night; a much better alternative isn’t it? What’s even better is the fact that people do not have to choose between exercise and meeting friends, so out go the excuses.

Oh I see, but can you elaborate on it a bit?

Activities can range from the mild to the hectic (needless to say it is done with a dash of fun). Spinning is a huge hit and one of the primary exercises carried out during such a session. Imagine sweating it out with your buddy and trying to outdo him (friendly rivalry renewed in a whole new way). Doing aerobics with a party theme and disco lights is enough to get the adrenaline pumping. The Zumba dance adds a whole new flavor to proceedings. What’s more you get healthy juices to swig on whenever you want to.

Not only are there fitness benefits involved, but it can be a great way to solve matters of the heart as well. When so many people come together at one place, sparks are bound to fly.

Agreed, its great fun but this can’t be the real deal

You are dead right… is my answer to the curious mortals questioning its authenticity. Fitness simply can’t be a one off event where you get together and slog it out. Sure, you might feel great after such a session, but the ramifications can be worse if you don’t follow up with sincerity.

Overuse injuries is the most common drawback to such a routine. And, if you are unlucky enough, you might in your over-zealousness tear a muscle or fracture bones. Diet is another aspect that is basically non-existent in this routine. And, smart people know for a fact that diet is as important as the workout regimen.

Like it or hate it, but this fancy new routine is definitely catching eye balls and is gaining ground rather quickly. While the verdict about its benefits is not out yet, one thing is for sure ‘drinking nights’ are going to face tough competition from this newbie.
