Small group personal training is like a fitness-focused coffee date with friends. While it’s small enough to offer quality and intensive focus, it’s also big enough to be fun and enjoyable. For years, small group personal training has been increasing in popularity for a few crucial reasons.
Not only is small group training affordable, but it’s also a fun way for clients to interact with friends or new people, learn something new from a personal trainer, and enjoy a workout group dynamic all at once. In fact, small group personal training is particularly appealing for active living clients. Active living for seniors caters to their unique needs and avoids some of the particular pitfalls of larger group training experiences.
Small group training doesn’t have the intimidating boot camp feel, for example. This makes it more welcoming for active living clients looking for an enjoyable experience.
The most significant difference between small group personal training and one-on-one training is the attentiveness and focus of the coach. In one-on-one coaching, instructors are only there to focus on a single person.
Small group personal training programs allow trainers to make personalized adjustments and recommendations based on the individual’s performance. In small group personal training, meanwhile, the instructor is there to focus on about 3-10 people. While this takes down the individual focus just a bit, it still offers a high level of personalization and an opportunity for adjustments. This is part of why small group training is such a great fit for active living clients. Because the injury is an increasing risk with older clients, small group training offers the dynamism of a group exercise experience, but all of the one-on-one focus and injury prevention of individual training.
When compared to boot camp or HIIT-style classes, small group personal training offers a much higher level of specific movement focus and finesse. In a HIIT class, the instructor’s goal is to give the entire class a “hard” workout, not to correct individual movements for active living clients.
Whether the exercise is twenty minutes or an hour, small group training is becoming incredibly popular at gyms and fitness centers around the country. Here are five good reasons for that shift:
Small groups typically include groups of 5-10 people. This limited group keeps these classes accessible but ensures the motivation level remains high. This is critical for people who find it difficult to get motivated to work out and will help ensure people generate the results they want from their workouts. Even if you’re not naturally a competitive person, working out with others is an excellent way to push harder and come out of your fitness shell.
Less Injury Risk
By definition, small group training is meant to cater to people with varying fitness levels. The benefit of this is that it decreases injury risk for people and helps everyone move forward at the same time. Additionally, since small group sessions include short training times, it’s easier for busy people to fit these sessions into their schedules. Ideal for people who can manage about 30 minutes of a workout session, small-group and HIIT sessions are a great way to get incredible results, avoid injury, and stick to a schedule all at once.
Personalized Time With a Trainer
Even people who don’t partake in one-on-one training will benefit from the individual time associated with small group training. By design, small group training focuses on providing each attendee with plenty of time to interact with and learn from the trainer. Whether the participant is learning to use a new piece of equipment or navigating around an old injury, this personalized time with a trainer is invaluable.
For active living clients, small group training allows them to continue the lifestyle they are looking for, like to play more golf, tennis, or play with kids and grandkids. This is a significant benefit for many such clients. While HIIT or personal training can be too intense for many active living clients, small group training is an excellent way to support real lifestyle goals while also staying in great shape.
Building and Reaching Attainable Goals
A critical aspect of motivation for active living clients is goal-setting. These clients may not have the same goals as younger clients or endurance athletes, for example, but they know what they want, and they need a personal training program that will help them reach those goals. Small group personal training does this. Because small group training offers these clients a chance to gauge their actual fitness level and work on ways to enhance their fitness while working in a fun and motivating group. In this way it is a motivating workout environment in which to set goals and crush them. With the help of a skilled trainer, small group classes can set comprehensive, team goals and achieve them quickly and easily.
Small group personal training programs run for different lengths, depending on their goals and objectives. As a general rule, most small group personal training programs last between four and six weeks, although some are larger or shorter. This is ideal for active living clients, as it provides enough time to see results, but is not long enough to impede other responsibilities or commitments. In some cases, small group personal training programs may run even longer. This is typically the case if the program is preparing clients for a specific event, or has a particular fitness goal in mind.
By 2030, Baby Boomers ages 65 and older will make up 21% of the U.S. population. Right Now, that number hovers around 15%. Either way, it’s clear the number of older adults in the country is growing, and that many of them are searching for ways to remain active and fit.
If your gym wants to cater to these active living clients, you’ve got to consider their unique needs and requirements. These include the following:
If you are looking for a fast, efficient workout to improve your cardiovascular fitness and health, our Small Group Conditioning sessions are the way to go. This is not your typical “burn” type workout. It’s not all HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout. Our workouts are based off sound research and training protocols that are proven to get results. We focus on properly using science-based interval training protocols to improve your VO2 Max, and train the heart muscle both concentrically and eccentrically – an important factor for both cardiovascular fitness and health.
Having only 6-people in a Conditioning session helps reduce the risk of injury and allows us to deliver more focused workouts. In a smaller group setting, we can write workouts that can allow us to make adjustments and focus on the members much better. Not only does the smaller group allow us to provide a better workout, it provides a platform for both the trainers and the members to connect with each other. With multiple Conditioning sessions scheduled back to back, there will be more people crossing paths with each other further strengthening the gym community as a whole.
Below is a brief outline of what you should expect from a Conditioning workout.
The 30-minutes on the schedule are for the efficiency of the scheduling system for the trainer, and for the overall flow of the training sessions at the facility. The workout will last 40-45 minutes overall. The goal of a conditioning session is to increase VO2 Max (heart-lung efficiency), blood flow, endurance, and longevity. For those looking to lose body fat, they go hand-in-hand. With our NEW conditioning sessions being only 6 people, we can now coach REAL interval training that scientifically gets the job done. Come see for yourself.
“This gym has changed my life! The semi-private classes offer a low pressure way to really work on all of the different parts of the body. A few short months after joining, every part of my body felt better as a result of the training. I have been in for over a year and always look forward to getting to a class. The workouts change on a regular basis to keep things interesting and hit different muscle groups. Other gym members are extremely friendly and at a variety of age and fitness levels. The trainers are all excellent – each with a slightly different perspective and way of motivating the class and explaining the different exercises. Peppy background music adds to the energy of the gym. I highly recommend SOF!”
“This place is the best. I look forward to working out here every single time. The trainers are knowledgeable, kind, and empowering. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. I’ve been a member for 6 months and have gotten so much stronger in that short time. A lot of the strength and conditioning movements have some sort of core work involved – after having 2 kids, this is the first place I’ve found where the workouts are really helping me get my core strength back. You can do a trial to see if you like it first, which I also found to be really helpful. People were so friendly and encouraging when I first joined, and really made me feel welcome. 5 stars- the best!”
