Small group training sessions are similar to normal fitness classes. With just a few people taking part, this allows your personal trainer to give each individual personal attention and motivation to help them reach their fitness goals. It's been said that there is strength in numbers. This is particularly true when it comes to small group personal training. From increased focus and fun, to more motivation and discipline, here's three key benefits to working out alongside a partner or two.
1. A sense of camaraderie and fun
It provides a great opportunity to meet other like minded people who also want to get fit. The group dynamic creates a sense of support and encouragement between the class participants.
Working out on your own is great, but the added motivation that comes from a group setting is dynamic and challenging. Nobody wants to be the weak link in a group. This psychological phenomenon, called the Köhler effect, means that people who train together get more results. You'll want to do your best to not only keep up with the other people, but to set an example to them too.
3. Affordable and sustainable
Group personal training is more affordable than regular individual personal training, and is more supportive than larger gym group classes. The emphasis and attention is focused on the individual through challenging and encouraging them to continually improve and work towards their goals.
