Community Workout for a Cause: Recap🎗️

April’s community workout session was a blast for the community as we raised money for a great cause. Our trainers led a fantastic fitness session by engaging everybody in the Chris Protein studio. Here’s a recap of the event!

Community Workout Recap

The most recent community workout was all about fun exercise and philanthropy. We exercised hard and raised $340 for the American Cancer Society doing so! The workout session included squats, lunges, rows, weightlifting and other fitness routines to invigorate your body. The best part though was that we were doing it for a good cause.

The community workout wouldn’t have been possible without our great trainers who led the event, Chloe and Celeste!

This special session pushed participants and provided great workouts for everyone. Our workout brought community engagement and fun as we helped the American Cancer Society. The non-profit organization says the U.S. will see over 2 million new cancer cases in 2024, so every ounce of effort matters to help the cause.

Community Workout Benefits

While exercise can be fun alone, it can be even more enjoyable when you have others around you. Here’s how a community workout benefits you.


How do you stay motivated while working out? Some get it through being around others in a positive and uplifting environment. Group exercise lets you see others with similar fitness goals as they push themselves to the limit. The energy is infectious as trainers and fellow clients sweat and work hard with you.

Research backs group exercise through the Köhler effect. This theory says your performance improves in group settings compared to time alone. A 2023 study found the Köhler effect positively impacts an individual’s exercise performance with a statistically significant increase.


Why do your workouts improve in a community setting? You’re more engaged and ready to tackle the exercises before you. Fitness is more fun when you have good music, camaraderie, and positive energy to draw from. Your engagement increases regardless of your age or experience level!

A 2023 study examined how older adults with chronic lung disease responded to exercise in a group setting. The participants found authentic social engagement, sustainable achievements and increased motivation. Exercising with people with similar backgrounds made them feel more comfortable and confident.


Community workouts mean you have built-in encouragement from workout leaders and the other participants around you. Chloe, Celeste and the other Chris Protein personal trainers keep the energy high with unbridled enthusiasm. A positive and friendly environment gives you the right mindset for working out and achieving your goals.

Experts say group exercise is also worthwhile for your basic psychological needs. Social support reinforces your sense of autonomy and makes you feel in charge of your choices. Working out with others makes you feel more fulfilled and more likely to stick with your fitness journey. Intrinsic motivation goes a long way to help you stay focused and positive every step of the way.


Goals set the stage for your fitness journey by setting the bar high. A sense of direction gives you the motivation to reach your target. How does group fitness factor into your goals? These sessions provide the determination to accomplish any feat. Finding exercise partners helps you complete workout programs and find the motivation deep inside. The infectious energy makes it easier to stay focused on your goals.


Group workouts include people from all walks of life. Despite the differences, everyone has common goals regarding their fitness levels. The community setting increases accountability because everyone is supporting your success. Connecting with trainers and gym members makes the workouts more fun and thwarts the temptation to skip a session. Your friends at Chris Protein’s gym can give each other tips to stay motivated and meet your goals.


One of the best parts of group workouts is the leadership you get from exercise experts. Chris Protein’s trainers provide individual and group guidance to produce the best results. While you can train alone, group exercise offers structure and expert-backed routines to ensure you get the most from your sessions. After a community workout, you can ask your trainer for a recap and takeaways to improve the next one.
