Top 3 reasons to try Small Group Training at the McCormick Tribune YMCA
April 21, 2016
Accountability, motivation and variety"
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.

Here are the top three reasons to join Small Group Training immediately!
Accountability - Sometimes we need a little encouragement to get to the gym. When you work out alone, the only person holding you accountable when you miss a class is you. The treadmill won’t notice or care when you miss a class, but your friends will. Even in regular group fitness classes, it’s easy to stay in the back of the class and remain anonymous. When you’re part of a small group, you have other people and an instructor who are depending on you to show up each day. This extra bit of accountability helps you stay on track and gets you one step closer to achieving the results you want.
Motivation - Let’s face it, working out alongside others tends to motivate us to keep up. If you're a competitive person, this is a huge benefit of small group fitness. If you're not competitive, you may be surprised at how much harder you push yourself during these small classes. Besides, who doesn’t like a little bit of friendly competition? Small group fitness classes, such as boot camps, allow members to have a little healthy competition.
Variety - When it comes to fitness, it’s easy to get caught up in the same old routine. Unfortunately, your body will eventually adapt to the workout and stop responding. Another advantage of small group fitness classes is that the instructor has an endless supply of workouts and techniques ready for you to use. A great group instructor changes up the workout every time in order to give your body a brand-new challenge with each session!
