How to Overcome Loneliness: Group Training at the Forefront

In today's fast-paced and digitally connected world, it's surprising to learn that loneliness has become an epidemic affecting millions of people. The rise of social media and technology, although intended to bring us closer, has led to increased feelings of isolation and disconnection - but we’re sure you’re aware of this already.

The stats speak for themselves with one quarter of Australians experiencing loneliness and 37% of young people, and this is even greater in the USA with 52% reporting feeling lonely.

At Fitstop, we’re a business addressing this issue head-on. By offering functional group training that emphasizes community, support and genuine team-based training, Fitstop is not only making a positive impact on people's health, but we’re connecting people together and creating community.

Really, gym offerings are about so much more than just results, and that’s why group training like Fitstop stands out from the crowd.

The Loneliness Epidemic: A Growing Concern

Loneliness is more than just a feeling of solitude; it can have severe implications on people’s physical and mental well-being. Research has linked loneliness to increased stress, depression, anxiety, and even chronic health conditions. With the effects of loneliness becoming more apparent, individuals are seeking ways to connect and form meaningful relationships with others.

Fitstop's Training Bringing People Together

Fitstop understands that the power of group exercise extends far beyond physical benefits. They have harnessed the potential of functional group training to create a supportive and inclusive community for all their members. 

Here's how Fitstop is successfully tackling the loneliness epidemic:

Unlike traditional gym setups, Fitstop's functional group training brings individuals together in a fun and dynamic environment where teamwork features in every session. At Fitstop, we start and finish together. Through teamwork and camaraderie, our Fitstoppers’ form lasting bonds, providing a sense of belonging and genuine connection which form solid friendships and incredibly strong communities for our business owners.

Inclusive and Supportive Environment

Fitstop's trainers and members foster a welcoming atmosphere, making it easier for new members to integrate into the community. When you walk into a Fitstop, you’re paired up with an experienced Fitstopper and complete our sessions that focus on teamwork.  

Social Events and Challenges

Fitstop regularly organises social events and challenges that encourage members to interact outside of regular training sessions. Whether it's charity fundraisers, team-building activities, end of the Unstoppable Series celebrations or fitness competitions, these events further strengthen the sense of community and is yet another benefit of group training - you know the people who are part of your gym.
