Question: Is Personal Training or Group Training right for YOU?
Answer: It depends on the individual person.
Some people thrive in group settings, but others need more attention to their personal details and goals. Here’s a list of comparisons between personal training and group training.
|Personal Training||Group Training|
|Personal Training gives you individual attention for your specific needs.||Although Group training can help you meet your specific needs, programs are more generalized to fit the group.|
|Personal Trainers provide accountability. You have a set time and location to be.||Group training classes are conducted with or without you so you may feel the urge to skip out if you’re not dedicated enough.|
|Personal training doesn’t allow you to slack off during workouts.||You can fade into the background during group training activities, but you’re only hurting your own progress.|
|The expense of personal training is premium due to the 1 on 1 nature of the sessions.||Group activities can help you leverage more training sessions and fit into your budget.|
|Personalized fitness is great for people with health issues or disabilities because the personal trainer can focus on the individual.||Group training can be great for people who need to feel the security of others around them and like a team environment|
|For people who are afraid of gyms, a personal trainer can help you learn more about fitness and overcome your fear of gyms once you know what you’re doing.||The group environment can also help you overcome your fears of the gym over time as it can make your experience more social.|
|Training can be conducted anywhere, home, park or fitness studio.||Group training can be conducted in a variety of settings; home, park and fitness studios. Outdoor Bootcamps and small group training are just a couple of options|
