What does “wellness for the whole person” really mean? “For each person, there are multiple dimensions of wellness - physical, emotional and social - that support overall health and wellbeing,”
explains Life Center wellness coordinator Barb Cacia. She adds, “Group exercise programs and classes provide multiple benefits to participants, such as peer support and relationship building, while also being fun and motivating.”
Participating in a scheduled exercise class compels you to make a time commitment to fitness, while the supervision of a skilled instructor assures that everyone uses proper technique to avoid injury.

Working out with others can be fun and motivating. The camaraderie of group exercise also helps prevent boredom.
Working out as a group, with a trained instructor, encourages proper exercise technique and guards against overexertion.
Exercising in groups makes you more likely to stick to a workout program. You’re less likely to give up with your peers cheering you on!
