So you’ve decided that you need to step it up a little if you’re going to achieve the goals that you’ve set down for yourself.
You know what you want to achieve, you’ve got a plan of the steps you need to tick off along the way.
Now it’s about going to work to get it done.
We have found year after year that getting the best out of yourself often requires getting the best out of someone else as well.
What do I mean? Well, setting you’re alarm to go off at 5:00am (or before) to get to the gym for a 5:30am session ain’t that appealing if there’s no one there waiting for you is it?
The snooze button is a little more attractive when there’s no one there to keep you accountable. Especially as the mornings get darker, the nights earlier, and both a little colder.
Now this does not necessarily mean that you have to have a drill sergeant trainer there waiting for you at the gym either( although for some can this is certainly a positive). But training with a trainer, with a training partner or even in a group can be one of the most beneficial ways to keep you on track and working toward ticking the boxes as you work towards the bigger goal you have set for yourself.
Group Training is everywhere these days, and for good reason! From Pilates and Yoga classes, to Powerlifting and Weightlifting gyms, Functional Fitness studios and Group Cycling classes. Everyone is realising that especially when it comes to your fitness the sum is far greater than it’s individual parts.
We have forever been a Personal (predominantly one on one) Training organisation. We began our Group Training program here at RevoPT as a necessity more than anything else, initially anyway, about 6 years ago. We had a very busy and popular trainer need to step aside from his work with us.
He had a huge client load. We were incredibly busy and had to look after all of his clientele without losing any of his hard working clients if possible. So, after a bit of discussion with them all the solution we came up with was to have some of them train together in a group rather than trying to find a short term replacement that may not have been the ideal fit.
We had this group training together a couple of times per week following on from a plan set by their former trainer.
The amazing thing was we started seeing their results improve. Dramatically. This was not a group of untrained individuals. This was a group of hard working, dedicated fitness enthusiasts that had been working on their individual goals for quite sometime.
Together however they were all becoming better. They were more dedicated, more focused on what they were needing to do outside of the gym to achieve success. More engaged in the work at the gym. They were enjoying the whole experience more. They were pushing each other harder and even getting a little competitive, but more than anything, trying to lead by example.
The sum of the parts were definitely greater.
Everyone was starting to build bonds within the group too. Friendship were being forged that are still strong to this day.
In short it has been the most successful change in the way we have run Revolution Personal Training to date.
We feel that Group Training offers something unique no matter who you are.
- Small class sizes – a maximum of only 12 per class
- Strength Training – a huge focus for us is getting people strong, no matter what level that start at
- Coaching – everybody is here to get better
- Movement, no matter who you are you can move and perform better.
- Community – Above all, development of our strong community. No one is left behind.
Hopefully this gives you the push you need to seek out your tribe. Find the style of training that suits you. Get involved. Get passionate and most importantly get results!
