Introducing Small Group Training to the Athletic Training Circuit
Small group training was named one of 2013’s hottest fitness trends, and as it looks to keep that title through 2014, I think it’s important to examine the facets that make it a hit for exercisers of every ability level.
Small group training consists of six to eight people working cohesively under the guidance of a trainer, with customization options that accomplish both strength and cardio goals. A major reason for its effectiveness is that exercise motivation thrives through group membership accountability, says the American College of Sports Exercise.
Life Fitness’ SYNRGY360 is a great example of effective small group training. SYNRGY360 accommodates users from all fitness backgrounds and lets them accomplish a variety of workout goals through rotating stations such as cable motion, boxing space and rebounders. While SYNRGY360 is ideal for small group training exercise, many are wondering if any small group training units accommodate the needs of performance training. Thanks to Hammer Strength, the answer is a resounding yes.
Hammer Strength has defined rugged and challenging small group performance training with its HD Elite rack system. With instruction from certified trainers and the use of stations such as bench press, squats, chin-ups and dips, athletes now have the ability to use the science behind small group training and apply it to performance training. The end result: increased strength capacity and toughness, without the risk of injury through tactical performance training.
