Personal Training vs. Small Group Training: Which One is For You?

September 22, 2019

Perhaps you’ve never been much of a gym-goer and you really struggle to find the motivation to get active, or maybe you love exercise but you’re just not loving the same old routine you’ve been doing for years. How do you fix this? How do you keep the gym interesting and stay motivated? It all comes down to developing an individualized training plan – whatever that looks like for you. Personal training and small group training could be the answer, but you won’t know unless you get more information. For all those in the Lakeview Chicago area, here’s how to know which one is for you.

Is personal training for me?

Personal training is…

  • Private
  • Safe
  • Individualized

When you think of personal training, the first thing that comes to mind might be some type of drill sergeant. Someone who yells at you to get moving at the gym when you can’t move anymore. Yet, more often than not, personal trainers want to develop relationships with their clients so that they can help them achieve the best results. And here’s the thing, personal training does achieve the best results because it’s entirely individualized training. Your personal trainer looks at your goals and will help optimize all your workouts to exactly how you want to move forward.

Is small group training for me?

Small group training is…

  • Motivating
  • Informative
  • Fresh

Small group training is awesome for someone who needs to shake things up. If you find that you won’t go to the gym without a buddy, don’t know how to schedule it into your life or feel like you don’t really know what you’re doing, then small group training could be the right fit for you. It helps throw that fire back into what you’re doing. You can learn new routines, discover new equipment, and bring a fresh perspective to your workouts. While you might not have someone else putting together a program for you, you could potentially put together a program for yourself if you’re dedicated enough.

So, how do I decide?

The decision is ultimately up to you because you’ll be the one in the gym! Personal training and small group training are both good options, and they can both be individualized to some extent. Personal training is ultimately the way to go if you’ve been lacking motivation for an extended period of time or really want to see major change. Plus, you can always mix the two if you miss attending those small group classes. Bonus? Both of the options are inside so there’s no reason to let the chilly Chicago winter deter you!
