I have started teaching a small number of ladies for group fitness class in a yoga studio. Because the classes are small and they are very consistent, the relationships and structure could be more like small group personal training. I have gotten to know the ladies and can give them specific instructions and modifications. If I wanted to re-frame the class as small group personal training, what would the differences be? (I am not trained as a personal trainer yet, although this may be my next step.) I would think that it would include goal-setting and tracking of the workouts and progress, more measurement of the process and results. How would you differentiate small group personal training from a small size group fitness class?
I agree with Nancy’s answer to this question.
Small group personal training is limited in number, some work with groups of up to 8 (I like to limit a small group to around 5).
The major differences are the price point and the level of individual coaching you are able to provide. Larger groups require you to spread your focus to keeping the group moving and on task while periodically allowing for some sparse individual attention.
Smaller groups are a higher price point and generally a higher level of coaching. It also allows for more specific goals. Maybe there are 4 ladies that specifically want to work on building their glutes (build a booty program) this could be a specialized group to cater to that need. A larger group would more likely have more generalized workouts while still working in individual goals
