THE BENEFITS OF SMALL GROUP TRAINING
Your decision to do small group training is one of the best investments you can make for yourself. Regular exercise is a major self-care strategy. Small group training allows a group of individuals to train together for a common goal while receiving individual attention. A trainer will assist you and your group in designing an exercise program. Whether your group is training for a team run, fitness challenge, to improve health, or just wants to workout with friends; small group training is a fun and safe way to exercise.
Groups benefit because the cost per person is lower than the cost of training one on one with a trainer.
The trainer will design exercises appropriate for each member of the group. You will gain tremendous confidence and your adherence to exercise will be enhanced as a result of attending all sessions with your group.
