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?
Hello Karen Mikolainis,
The main difference is the individual attention, and tracking of workouts and RPE for personal training compared to the group tracking their own workouts and being responsible for staying in their own training capabilities.
With that comes much more work on your own time for personal training as compared to group training. How we communicate during the classes is another major difference.
