The business of personal training has been defined over the past couple of decades as training one person at a time, one-to-one training in other words. That’s what most people consider personal training as being.
However, as a trainer I have to use my time wisely to reach a greater number of people.
The semi-private model starting to rear its head a number of years ago. Forward thinking fitness business pioneers like Alwyn Cosgrove presented the idea of semi-private training where a small number of clients took the same time slot to run through their program with their trainer.
This has a been a great model to adopt for both my business and for the clients who have jumped on board.
The benefits speak for themselves. Accountability, fun, partnership, camaraderie and a wee bit of competitive spirit help clients to turn up, do the work and ultimately, achieve better results.
What I have noticed though, is that when partners train together, the work ethics jump a notch. Maybe it’s because the frequent chit-chat is reduced (compared to friends or relative strangers) or maybe it’s because each partner wants to prove themselves to their partner or maybe it’s just because partners are more comfortable working hard with all the face-pulling we make during hard sets! Haha – who knows…
.. but what I do know is, that when partners train together they end up with better results.
With that in mind, I’d like to fill up some time slots with other couples who want to take on their health and fitness goals.
If you and your partner are thinking of taking up some training, this could be your ideal opportunity.
