Personal training can be done on an individual basis or in a small group. Ensemble training has become a major trend in the fitness industry today. There are plenty of reasons group training is popular and offers its participants various benefits.
Personal Attention – Small group training is particularly useful and helpful to people looking to work with a personal trainer and require personal attention. For instance, if you visit the gym with a group of people the attention you will receive is at a minimal because the gym will not have more than two instructors at a time. Whereas, if you workout in a small group with a personal trainer at the helm, you are likely to receive one on one attention.
Economical – Training in a small group is more economical and suited to one’s budget than training individually. Not only will you receive personal attention you can exercise with an expert trainer who knows the ins and outs of sticking to a routine until you achieve your health and fitness goals.
Variety in Routine – An expert health trainer will have the knowledge to incorporate variety into your exercise routine. The more variety and change you have in your workout the more likely it will be exciting and adventurous instead of boring and mundane.
Additional Support – When exercising alone there will be times when you feel bored or dejected. However, working out with a group means camaraderie and workout loves company. Participants sharing their exercise program with others are likely to stick to the routine and achieve their fitness goals successfully.
Motivation & Encouragement – Training with a personal trainer will ensure encouragement when you feel the need to quit the program. A trainer is there to provide motivation to stick to it, work hard, push forward and help you reach your goals. However, having an entire group of participants all attempting to reach similar goals will keep you motivated through the course of the program. You will have additional support in the form of not just workout buddies but friends.
Greater Concentration – When you are in a group you cannot afford to slack or lag behind. Not just the trainer but the participants will require each individual to focus on reaching their goals. There’s no time to slack as your trainer will be on your heel urging you to push on.
Discipline – Yes discipline and adherence to the routine is absolutely necessary. It helps when there are a number of participants in the program. You can keep each other motivated until the completion of it.
Fun & Exciting – Exercising can be fun if it’s done with the right people. Get into a group where your workout buddies are not just participants of a group but also like-minded people. This can keep your group routines exciting while you all attempt to reach your maximum potential.
Results – The core aim of joining an ensemble fitness group is to achieve success at the end of it. Once you reach your fitness goals you would have achieved the desired results.
