One of the fastest-growing trends in fitness"
One of the fastest-growing trends in fitness is small group training, an effective, affordable and fun way to reach your fitness goals. In the McCormick Tribune YMCA's Small Group Training classes, you’ll meet new, like-minded workout buddies, be held accountable, and have people there to motivate you every step of the way. Click here to register and visit our member services desk.
Here are the ten reasons why Small Group Training might be exactly what you're looking for!
More personal attention – While large-group exercise offers many benefits, the instructors are not always able to see and correct each individual class member. In Small Group Training, the instructor-to-participant ratios are much lower.
More economical – Personal training provides the most personal attention and greatest opportunity to succeed. Some people, however, may find that Small Group Training fits into their budget better and still gives them the attention they need.
Variety – By working with a knowledgeable fitness professional, your workouts will change and evolve as you progress, preventing you from hitting a plateau and getting bored.
Camaraderie – Let’s face it, workouts love company. Sharing the workout enhances the experience for participants by boosting morale and support.
Motivation – Having someone exercising right beside you can push you a little harder than you might push yourself.
Support – Both the trainer and other participants are there to help you get through the challenges of the workout, as well as the challenges of life.
Greater focus – There’s no time to let your mind wander with a trainer keeping tight programming and watching your every move.
Fun – Yes, fun! The right exercise program done with friends can definitely be fun.
Adherence – Research shows that members who are involved in programs are more likely stick with it. With all of the previously listed benefits, how could you not want to keep coming back?
Results – When you stick with a well-constructed program, you will get the results.
