Better Programs. Better Outcomes.
There are few better ways to get more people moving than group training. Clients love it: it’s more financially accessible than personal training, it creates a positive sense of community and it allows people to motivate each other for success. For the health and fitness professional, small group training is a great way to reach, motivate and help more people make healthy changes in their lives. Small group training, however, comes with challenges. With different levels of fitness and ability within a group, you must strike a careful balance to ensure that clients get the individual attention they need while safely executing movements. The key to success in small group training is great program design.
In this video training, ACE Certified Personal Trainer and founder and owner of San Diego Premier Training Mike Deibler MS, CSCS will show you how to put systems in place to screen clients for small group training. He will also explain how to create a periodized plan for a group of participants having different fitness levels and needs. With information about proper client intake, modifications, different motivation/leadership styles and proper planning for a variety of individual needs, this course will set you up for small group training success.
You will learn:
- How to screen clients to determine if they are a good fit for a small group training program
- The proper progression and regression models for individualized program design within a group setting
- Different periodization models to use for small group training
- How to use group training to build a community of followers and advocates for your program
