I am new to small group class training, and am looking for tips on how to perform the warm up portion before the resistance circuits. Also, how do you typically design your classes /choose what parts of the body to work? Do you use more total body exercises to allow for shorter workouts in order to attract more clients that feel as if they’re getting a full body workout in a short period of time?
In one of our Free Motion Circuit Classes. They will walk the track for 10 minutes then we begin our circuit training. In our other circuit class I will have them do large arm circles, lunge from side to side, toe touches..you can add whatever you like it’s up to you. Each circuit should last from 1min and half maybe 2 min. tops. It does depend on what type of class you are conducting. You can use anything from free weights to bodybar, buso ball etc.. hope some of these ideas helped.
