So, you've made a commitment to your other half to get fit together. Or perhaps you've roped your buddies into a fitness challenge. If you're ready to ramp up your fitness routine and need a little support, working with small groups is a great idea, helping you to reach your individual goals as you workout together.
Small group training doesn't only add fun to your fitness session (because everything is better when shared with friends!), it's a great way to keep yourself motivated, on track and accountable for showing up!
Going even further with the group activity vibes… enjoying a personal training session as a group is a great option for groups of friends preparing for a charity event, Mum groups looking for a sociable way to workout or businesses that want to keep their teams on top form!
Avoid The Lunchtime Lull
Ditch the desk at lunchtime and enjoy a group training session with your colleagues!
A lunch hour workout is a great way to stretch out crumpled back muscles that have been hunched over a desk all morning. Plus, you'll get a boost of energy to help you tackle the rest of your day!
"We hit the gym every Thursday before lunch for some Training in Blackpool as a team. It's a great way to avoid sitting at your desk all through your lunch hour and gets us all revived for the afternoon. A quick shower, then we're back at our desks for a sandwich, all pumped and refreshed!" (Abbie | Village Gym Blackpool member)
Sweatworking Is The New Networking!
Post-work networking is so 2018. Working has become a workout with the latest trend to hit the fitness scene...sweatworking.
Forget meeting over lunch or after work drinks, business professionals have found that talking shop whilst burning calories has become a great way to integrate work into their fitness routine.
Sweatworking is a great way to get your colleagues bonding, and is fast becoming a popular choice for teambuilding, as employers strive to inject more fitness into the workplace.
Off Peak Training Sessions
If you're more flexible between the nine to five, the gym floor is often much quieter during the daytime, making it a great time for mum groups, seniors or shift workers to hit the gym.
Local yummy mummy groups love the buzz of a group training session to maintain their fitness levels and tone up. Our senior members also enjoy a group workout, followed by a cuppa tea afterwards in the Village Grill!
"We're a group of four new mums so the group training in Hull really works for us and our schedule. We always stay for a coffee in Starbucks afterwards which we class as our social time. It's great to be able fit in time for the gym and a social life in one go. It's the highlight of my week!" (Emma | Village Gym Hull member)
