You’ve been there. The new year rolls around, and you vow to finally get to the gym at least a few times a week. You hang on for the first few weeks, maybe the first few months, but then life gets in the way and you inevitably cancel that membership.
But let me ask you… did life get in the way? Or was it really your mind getting in the way of your fitness goals? Exercising alone requires self-discipline. That can be tough to find when you’re starting out on your fitness journey! But did you know there is another, better way?
Small group classes can transform your fitness mindset. The benefits are countless! And in the Columbus, Ohio area there are plenty of options for a small group personal training class that works for you.
Keep reading to learn why you should try small group training and to hear some of our best class offerings!
Benefits of Small Group Training
Research shows that we as humans gravitate towards the healthy behaviors of others in a group setting. This rubs off particularly well when it comes to working out. Not only will the good behaviors rub off on you in class, but having that set group to work out with also helps you commit to showing up!
If you know your small group class is scheduled for Tuesdays at 5:30 pm, you’re more likely to show up. Why? You’re held accountable to a time slot that you’ve committed to with your money and time. Plus, the social responsibility to not let your classmates down will also motivate you.
Beyond just showing up, you have the chance to motivate others and be motivated. Someone at your side cheering you on can get you through that last set of pushups. Or, maybe you want a little friendly competition to help you beat someone’s record!
Ever been working out at the gym and realize you have no idea how to work any of the equipment? Or want to focus on legs or core, but don’t know what exercises are best for that? You could do some googling to figure it out on your own, or you could try small group training.
With small group training classes, you get all the benefits of a personal trainer. They can answer all your questions without stretching your budget for private sessions. With a small group class size of about 5-10, you’ll still benefit from individualized attention from your trainer.
