Whether you are going to the gym to lose weight, build muscle or just to stay in shape, there is no arguing the benefits of a personal training session. A good personal trainer can create a fitness plan that is custom tailored to your needs and your specific fitness goals and can even walk you through your workout to ensure that you are doing the exercises safely and properly. The one drawback to personal training sessions is that they are expensive. There is an upside though, and it is in the form of a growing new trend in personal training call Semi-Private Personal Training/Group Training.
Benefits Of Group Personal Training
Group personal training classes make it easier, and much more affordable, for anyone to take advantage of a personal training session, just with a group of people. Instead of one-on-one training, you are in a group of people who have similar fitness goals. The energy levels are much higher in both group and semi-private personal training sessions as there is a bit of competition with others in the class.
Depending on the size of the group, you might not receive the personal attention you would like, but the savings are significant enough to make up for it. Industry experts and personal trainers alike are saying that the popularity of group personal training sessions is a results of two things: the reduced price per session and the fact that the sessions are much more effective due to the class setting.
Many professional athletes and elite sports teams have been using group training principles for decades for their strength and conditioning sessions and have seen the tremendous advantages of this type of training. Group training for sports teams not only improves teamwork, but the effectiveness of the workouts is increased as well.
The Difference Between Semi Private and Group Personal Training
While group personal training sessions might include up to 20 people, semi private personal training involves a much smaller group of 6 to 8 people. This ensures that there is more one on one and personalised training and that everyone can progress at their own rate.
Another benefit of semi-private personal training is that you don’t feel like you are being the center of attention during the session while the trainer works with you on a specific exercise. You also have more communication between client and trainer which can make the sessions even more effective.
