Small Group Training Products and Programming

According to the American College of Sports Medicine, small group personal training (SGT) ranked in the Top 20 Fitness Trends for 2016. Other ranked topics in their Worldwide Survey include body weight training, core training, HIIT, and functional fitness. This is fantastic news for the training industry as these are all disciplines in which personal trainers are very well-versed!

While one-on-one training is still popular, starting a variety of small group training programs is a great way to get your business booming!  People of all ages and fitness levels want to get involved with a personal trainer but sometimes shy away from the exposure that comes with one-on-one attention. Small groups are a great way to exponentially grow your clientele and your influence in a fraction of the time.

Remember, SGT doesn’t just mean outdoor boot camps and Crossfit boxes. There are many different categories of folks out there that can benefit from a group workout setting. For example, with Spring Break around the corner, think about starting a Spring Training Camp for young athletes in your community. Or what about contacting a local senior center about offering a class targeting older adults? Don’t get caught in a niche. Program variety is a key component to developing a successful and far-reaching personal training business comprised of both small groups and one-on-one clientele.
