The findings were part of a recent survey conducted among more than 500 members of 24 Hour Fitness. Among the top positive physical effects reported, increased energy (74 percent), enhanced muscle tone (71 percent) and improved endurance (71 percent) ranked as the highest, while a sense of accomplishment (67 percent) and improved sleeping habits (46 percent) ranked as top mental benefits.

According to the poll, respondents said their favorite Group X® classes included indoor cycling, Les Mills BODYPUMP™ and boot camps.
