How to Build Community Through Group Programming
My first experience of group training wasn’t a personal experience. It was a secondary experience that came through interacting with my mom.
When I was in elementary school, I clearly remember her going to Jazzercise after dropping me off at tae kwon do. She wore her sweats, headband, tennis shoes, and a face that showed how “jazzed” she was to meet her friends at Jazzercise. Although I have a clear memory of her heading to Jazzercise, I never had an idea of what she actually did when she got there. Based on her excitement, I assumed that it was one of the coolest things in the world. I didn't realize until I was much older that it wasn’t the workout that kept her jazzed to keep going back. It was the community.
