In recent years, the term ‘group personal training’ represents the latest trend, as big box gyms are making way for smaller, more personalized fitness centers. The reason? People want individual attention and workouts without paying the hefty cost of one-on-one training.
Getting fit used to mean one of three things:
1. You were a lone gym rat
2. You hired a personal trainer to whip you into shape
3. You participated in exercise classes (aerobics, yoga, etc.)
A traditional exercise class is something that an entire group follows. In this setting, the instructor teaches, and the students follow. On the other hand, group personal training differs because of one operative word: ‘personal’. Group trainers do something that exercise instructors don’t do – they coach. Often, their students are doing different things at the same time, according to their own level of ability, fitness, intensity and speed.
And group personal training isn’t going anywhere in a hurry. Why? Because it works, and it’s more affordable than its high-priced sibling, one-on-one personal training. In addition, you get the added bonus of motivation from both your instructor and your peers. There’s more energy and even a bit of good old-fashioned competitiveness. After all, if the person next to you is going all out, you’re more likely to do the same.
