SMALL GROUP TRAINING
Perhaps you don't want to train alone. Perhaps you want to use training as an activity where you spend more time with your partner. Perhaps you're in a small group of friends who want to make the commitment to get fit together.
If you want to get the most out of training, why not get me to train your small group? By training together, you can reduce the costs and motivate each other.
WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?
If you are going to train in a small group, I take on groups of two or three people. More than that and I suggest that you join a gym class because the benefits of training together are outweighed by the length of the enforced rests. You should all be of a similar level of experience – beginner or intermediate level is usually best – and have similar aims (otherwise the routines will not achieve the aims you each seek).
Beyond that, however, this can work for anyone, male or female, mixed groups of any age. We can do this in the gym or we can do it at your home. What's most important is to do it.
What equipment is needed? Well, this depends where the training is done. A lot of calisthenics exercises can be performed at home and at the gym. If you are training in the gym, then we can use all the typical gym equipment. If you are training at home, then we can work with bodyweight exercise, resistance bands, dumbbells and Trx.
MY APPROACH TO THIS TYPE OF TRAINING
I train small groups in circuits and supersets. That way we can maximise the number of exercises that each of you do in the time available. You will move between two or more exercises alternating with little rest between them. If you think this is an easier option, I'm going to disappoint you.
So, for example, where I am training two clients, one client will perform Exercise A of a superset while the other one performs exercise B. Once the first exercise is completed they swap position and perform exercises the other client was performing before. With three clients I use a similar approach but in this case, we will be using more circuits and giant sets.
By following this approach, the weights lifted can be adjusted according to the ability of each individual client.
HIGHLIGHTS OF A TYPICAL TRAINING SESSION
So, what can you expect? A typical training session is about one hour long. It begins with about 10 minutes warming up. The first phase of warming up includes movements to increase the body temperature and the second phase involves dynamic stretches exercises performed to warm up the muscles before the actual training session.
The core of the session itself is about 45 to 50 minutes long. The training in each session will always vary day by day (although I personally suggest doing a total body workout each session or rotating between an upper body session and a lower body session, always followed by 10 to 15 minutes core at the end).
