Benefits of One on One Personal Training -Mandy Dobbs

Coaching one to one is ideal if you have a very specific fitness goal. For example, if you are an athlete training for a competition, just wanting to increase your general fitness or if you have an injury. Your goals might be so individual that an all-round general strength-based programme might not be appropriate. The one to one road is also the one to follow if you are recovering from a serious injury where your session needs to be personalized and tailored to help you recover and avoid any new injury.A trainer will be present the whole time to ensure you're maximizing the efficiency of your workout.

Key Benefits of One on One training;

  • The trainer will take into affect your 'personal’ state of health and fitness

  • Rehabilitating injuries

Group Personal Training - Robyn Carney

Most people work best in a group environment. It creates an exciting atmosphere. You are more motivated to push yourself harder in your training with others around you. If the other people training with you are getting on with their workout it will drive you to do the same. In a group session you will be focused on your training and getting more out of your session than if you were training alone in the gym. Remember a coach is there to make sure you are training safely, effectively and proficiently not counting your reps. Group Personal Training makes workouts fun with more people - the more the merrier!

Key Benefits of Group Personal Training;

  • You gain accountability - me (the trainer) and your friends

  • Personal to you, your goals. Not just a generic circuit training class.

  • Still get the personal training aspect - with a trainer watching and correcting your technique and teaching you the right way to do exercises

  • Flexibility of when you do the workout - can work around your schedule and change to suit you.

  • Healthy competition with your friends instead of just working you vs you.

  • Motivate each other and push one another to work hard during sessions
