If you’ve always wanted to have your own personal trainer, but didn’t think you could afford it, maybe you should look into small group training in Houston, but only if a personal trainer runs it. There are all types of group training, but the best type is led by a personal trainer. The trainer asks each participant about their goals and any special needs, such as physical limitations that might require modifying a workout. He or she then assesses each person’s fitness level and designs a personalized plan for each member, just as he or she would for private training.
The group may look like they’re all doing the same thing, but they’re not.
Each person has his or her own goal. The level of intensity will also vary in the group. Sometimes, even the form is different. A person that has never exercised and isn’t fit may be doing push-ups on bent knee, while a fitter person does their push-ups using a more traditional form. Every person in the group will have a challenging program based on his or her goals, needs and level of fitness. Nobody will ever be bored waiting for someone less fit or lost because they can’t keep up with the rest.
The trainer tracks everyone’s progress and makes adjustments as they proceed.
You’ll always have a challenging program, but one that you can safely accomplish. As you get fitter, it becomes easier and that’s when the trainer adjusts your program to match your new fitness level. Just like private training, you’ll always be working toward your maximum potential, which rises as you get fitter. The trainer also tracks your workout to make sure it’s effective.
You’ll have a lot of fun when you train with a group.
Sure, getting fit is important and should be approached with seriousness, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. Everyone loves it when someone reaches their goals or cheers them on, so they can. It’s that group support and sometimes the friendly competition that helps you achieve more. You’ll make friends and enjoy the comradery of small group training.
- Trainers provide motivation in a number of ways. When you know you’re meeting with a group, you’re more apt to go to training even if you don’t feel like it. Trainers also can remind you how far you’ve come and has proof based on earlier workouts.
- You’ll learn the right way to do every exercise. Not only does the trainer show you how to do it, he or she watches to ensure it’s done correctly. Doing an exercise improperly, diminishes the results or can even cause injury.
- The cost of the training is far less than private training, since everyone pays for the trainer’s time. That makes it less per capita.
- Some personal trainers even provide nutritional advice. They either have the credentials to do it themselves or use the services of a qualified nutritionist or team of nutritionists for their clients.
