Training Myths: One-on-One is the Best/Only Way to Do Personal Training

Many people believe that personal training means having one trainer and one client; however, this style of training is becoming a thing of the past. Semi-private personal training is the wave of the future and is what we believe in here at FASTER. Semi-private training has a great deal of advantages. In the simplest form, it helps drive the energy in the facility up while driving the cost of training down. This allows more people to gain the benefits of personal training without stretching their spending limits to do so.

With this type of training clients still receive a personalized training program that is built for them and their goals, they simply share the attention with the trainer who is working with 2-3 other clients. It allows clients to develop relationships with all of the trainers at the facility as well as the other members in the facility. Accountability and support is elevated as trainers are always watching and cheering on clients, while fellow clients do the same to one another. The incredible atmosphere and community that is felt at FASTER is built in large part because of the open environment created through semi-private training. There is no intimidation as clients are all working towards their own goals and enjoy celebrating the successes of their peers around them.

This type of training also gives clients a sense of control over their workouts. What we mean here, is with one-on-one training, the trainer is constantly with the client – which is not necessarily a bad thing; however, with semi-private training, the trainer is always watching the clients, but the clients get to go through the workouts on their own using the trainer’s guidance. In turn, they gain a sense of control as they go through the sessions at their pace and terms.

So many great things come out of semi-private training that we wouldn’t want our facility to be run any other way. This is the training of the future and we are glad to give you the best experience we can!
