GROUP TRAINING VS. INDIVIDUAL TRAINING: WHAT’S THE BETTER INVESTMENT?
Have you ever tried to do two things at once? For example, eating breakfast while driving to work. Whatever you are eating would probably taste much better if you were sitting down at the table, focusing on your meal, rather than the traffic around you. Or how about writing an email while watching your favorite TV show? You probably have to rewind quite a few times because you missed something!
What we are trying to say is that you can never do multiple tasks as well as doing just one. This same idea can also be applied in the fitness world. What if your personal trainer had to watch and guide more than one person during your workout? What about if it was two or more?
At Philly Personal Training, our Rittenhouse personal trainers primary goal is to focus on you and your fitness goals for maximum results. If you are torn between investing your time and money in either personal training or group fitness training, take a look below at all the benefits Philly Personal Training can provide that a group class cannot.
CLOSE SUPERVISION & SAFETY
In a group fitness setting, the instructor is tasked with keeping an eye on upwards of ten to fifteen individuals. In turn, class patrons are more susceptible to injury and incorrect form due to the lack of attention.
With personal training, however, you will have the undivided attention of your personal trainer to help perfect your form and deliver maximum results for your efforts.
MOTIVATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY
For most, having a workout buddy (or several) is all the motivation we need to get our workout in for the day. This motivation can be achieved in both a personal training setting and group fitness setting, but will it last?
To put it in the simplest terms, to reach any type of fitness goal consistency is key. Group fitness classes can vary, and people generally lose interest in them when they don’t see their promised results. With personal training, you will have one dedicated coach that ensures your motivation levels stay high and your workouts challenging.
Group fitness classes were created under the principle of a “one-size-fits-all” with every fitness level welcome. The downside of this, though, is that group fitness does not take into account the personal goals of each individual, which is the driving factor in a lot of workouts. Personal training, on the other hand, is the exact opposite where goals and customization are the focal points in every workout session.
If you are looking for the most bang for your buck, personal training is going to be the better investment for you. Contact Philly Personal Training today to meet with some of the best personal trainers in the Philadelphia area. Together, we can crush your goals!
