When you’re looking to lose weight and get in shape, it’s important to train the right way and be able to keep up with your workout and nutrition goals. If you do this, you will see results and you will see them at a faster rate than you initially expected.
One of the main factors that you should consider is the size of the group that you train with. Studies show that small group training is actually more effective and that we should work out with others rather than by ourselves.
This is one of the reason behind Team Howell's personal training packages that are geared towards helping our clients work towards their fitness goals in small groups. Here are 10 reason why you should consider exercising with others to increase your fat loss results.
1. Greater Variety
In a small group, you’ll be under the guidance of an expert personal trainer. That means that you won’t have to worry about workouts being boring. Instead, you can look forward to exciting workout sessions with plenty of different exercises all put together in a carefully designed worouts with your goals in mind.
2. Increased Value
Small group training may not provide the same level of personal attention as working with your coach on a 1-2-1 basis. However, it will have the added benefits of receiving the same level of expertise, care and will provide budgetary benefits so you can focus the saved money elsewhere.
3. Motivation BOOST
You might like working out solo but you likely don’t get the same level of motivation that you will if someone is working next to you. Most people we have worked with proved to be competitive to an extent. Seeing your fellow team members working hard will push you to do more.
4. In It Together
Indeed, going through the same challenge of completing your lifts creates a level of camaraderie. You’re not just in it for yourself. Everyone is working together to achieve their fitness goals and succeed. Due to this, you are more likely to see better results.
5. Fun And Games
Working out by yourself can be boring. Working out with a group? That can be great fun with jokes and laughter paired with reinforcement and support.
6. Hone In
When you’re working out by yourself, it’s easy to let your mind wander. You might take longer breaks, simply because nobody is watching. Accountability can increase your performance, help you get the most out of your workouts and ultimately produce results faster. With a trainer and the rest of the group constantly around, you’ll be able to stay focused and work harder.
7. Help At Hand
Need a helping hand to get through some tough routines or challenges? In a group you’ll always have someone nearby ready to spot you, say a few words to get the weight up and your trainer will also be there to support, adjust and make sure your exercise technique is on point.
8. That Personal Touch
Even though the attention of your trainer will be split between 3-5 people, you will know they have their eyes on you and that in itself is often enough to get one more rep, go a little bit heavier and give you the confidence you need to develop faster. Working out alone in the gym or attending large group classes will not create the same effect.
9. Keep It Up
Studies do show that by joining a small group or signing up for a program you are more likely to stick with your exercise routine. You won’t give up at the first sign of struggle because you’ll have a reason to keep coming back.
10. Getting The Results
Last but not least, you are more likely to see greater fat loss results if you exercise in a group. Why? Well, it’s a little of all the factors that we have just mentioned.
You’ll be part of a constructed program and this means that you will be working towards a goal on a path that has been shown to lead to success before. You will be surrounded with like-minded people and also get to meet other members of the community who have already achieved what you desire and are working toward more advanced goals.
