3 Reasons to Try Training in Small Groups?
Motivation comes in Groups
Sometimes the most challenging thing about getting FIT is getting motivated and staying motivated. Research shows that the majority of people who commit to getting fit as a new years resolution drop out of regular training within 24 weeks!. Getting up every day to work out can be difficult, but the great thing about training in a group is the impact having other people to train with has on motivation. It is the same behavioral dynamic that arises in long-distance running, where the lead runner will set the pace for a group of runners. We have seen a distinct correlation between training in groups and the results that are seen by our clients.
Group Training makes you Accountable

This feeling will push the participants to stay committed to the training and maintain a healthy lifestyle on a day to day basis.
