For those who have a training buddy or two either at home or to join in separately to train together which can be both a more affordable option and a way to share the fun!
Not an exercise class where you may be grouped with strangers, this would be friends and family members who wish to share costs and train together, even if you are at different locations (especially during the pandemic).
The advantages are that we go lower in cost for each person and you have buddies to get together with both during our sessions and in between to help motivate and keep things fun. It might not be for the extremely introverted, but as you do get to choose who you hang with and you will all need to agree to 1) be non-competitive and non-judgmental and 2) make sure everyone is having a good time and work to change things to make it more fun for everyone even some of us extremely private types can find one other person to be an exercise buddy.
If the group is starting out together, we can do our first meeting and the evaluations at the same time, although the latter will be a longer session than for an individual. Remember, there is none of the weighing and measuring which can be embarrassing even between friends involved in our evaluations. It is helpful for everyone to know where everyone else is at activity-wise, you would probably be doing this with folks who already are aware of each others’ health and fitness levels.
You do not all need to be at the same level of fitness as long as you remember it’s never a competition and support each other to work at their own pace and listen to their bodies. The importance here is trust and friendship….and having fun!
