Day 35 of the 60 Day Ultimate Optimization Challenge

Today is an interesting discussion—should you workout alone or socially/in a group setting? 

The answer is… studies show that it depends on your personality! Read to find out.

Workout in a group: you may thrive in a social setting—be it a group class because you get motivation from others (typically dopamine-driven people) and like some healthy competition. 

An example of this would be a HIIT class with others.

Workout alone: serotonin-driven people prefer working out alone and in a calmer style. 

This could be a walk in nature or yoga. 

My recommendation: I think you can get benefits from both so try to switch it up if possible. 

Find your personality and then do both. 

Your homework for today is: If you thrive on working out with others, do two social workouts and if you like being alone, do two solo workouts this week.
