Tying the knot? Planning a holiday with your bestie? Or just signed up to a fitness event?
If you need a little motivation from our personal trainers, why not tackle it as a twosome?
Our Personal trainers will work with you as a couple, helping you to reach your individual goals as you workout together.
Not only will you get all of the expertise of a fully qualified personal trainer, you'll have the additional motivation of smashing your fitness goals with your other half.
Working out with a friend has been proven to increase your performance and boost your motivation. By committing to a couples personal training session, you'll be less likely to skive off, and more likely to put in more effort. (That'll be your competitive side coming out!)
Couples personal training sessions are a great option for gym newcomers who want the moral support of their closest pal, couples making a committment to their health... and each other! Plus, they're a great way to add a more sociable element to your personal training sessions.
Ditch The Desk
We all have that one colleague we consider to be our spare arm. So grab your work wife, your PA or your business partner and try a couples personal training session in your lunch hour.
Working out mid-morning is a great way to stretch out tight back and shoulder muscles and give you an energy boost for the second half of your day.
"Me and my colleague do couples personal training in Aberdeen because we don't like to work out on our own! We train during our lunch so when our day is done, we get to go home, rather than have to hit the gym when it's busy." (Sarah| Village Gym Aberdeen member)
Daytime Couples Personal Training Sessions
Speaking of daytime workouts, the gym is often much quieter during the nine to five, making it a great time to enjoy a couples personal training session without the rush on the gym floor.
Ideal for yummy mummies, retired members or those who work shifts.
"I do couples personal training with a friend, as we're both nurses, so we have busy days and little time to fit it all in. Working out together allows us to spend time together and motivate each other. We're both trying to lose weight. So we get much more out of our session than we would just doing it alone." (Kathy | Village Gym Edinburgh Personal Training Client)
Personal Training For Running Events
So, your bestie has signed you up to the local marathon, Race For Life or a mud-filled trekking challenge. You're not ready. Fear not, our Personal Trainers will help you and your friend prepare for a marathon, triathlon or mud-covered event together.
We'll create an exercise plan that strengthens the legs muscles to improve your running technique. Plus, work on your cardio fitness to ensure you last the distance!
Your personal trainer will asses both of your fitness levels and track your individual progress, though you'll have the motivation from each other to smash your personal best.
Make it even more of a challenge with a MyZone belt! You can enjoy a little healthy competition and keep track of who has clocked the most MEPs during each couples personal training session. (Buy yours in the leisure reception.)
Couples Personal Training For Newlyweds
You've booked the venue, bought the dress, the countdown to your big day is on. To ensure you're looking and feeing your absolute best for your nuptials, our personal trainers will work with you as a couple, to achieve results in time for the big day.
Aim for a slow and steady approach, rather than a quick fix, which will only lead to disappointment and add further stress to your already crammed schedule. Our personal trainers usually recommend you aim to have met your fitness goal a month before the wedding. This allows you to spend the final four weeks simply maintaining your efforts, whilst you crack on with the party planning. So add couples personal training sessions to your wedding plan in good time!
Couples Personal Training For Weight Loss
Studies have shown that exercising with a friend can increase calories burned by up to 25%.
Add a little friendly competition into your workout and you’re less likely to call time on it early, or put in a less than impressive effort. The motivation that comes from having a fitness friend pushes us to go that bit further, with the average workout with friends lasting for 44 minutes, compared to a solo session at 38 minutes.
So if weight loss is your goal, regular couples personal training sessions could see you hit your goal weight earlier than working out alone.
Couples Personal Training For Newbies
Just joined Village Gym? If you're not too sure on where to begin, grab your best buddy for backup and book a couples personal training session. We'll educate you both on how to use the gym equipment, how to spot each other and which bits of kit you should be using to achieve your own fitness goals.
Expect to do some resistance work, exercises to get your heart pumping, and test your fitness levels with a little healthy head-to-head competition!
Naturally, you'll want to finish your session with a refreshing drink in the Village Pub. That's what friends are for!
