“It is much more fun to workout with a partner or in a group!” This is a motto that I live by and quickly realized as a personal trainer. For over 1 year I did one on one training nearly exclusively, but I soon had a big ah ha moment that would change my life! Most people don’t want to have a trainer watch them count reps! Instead they wanted to be in an environment with others who were working out and suffering (I mean feeling the burn) right along side them going through a carefully designed program that is going to deliver maximum results while limiting the chances of injury! I found that I could just as effectively train 4 people as one person. Actually the results were even better in many cases, and then I took that a step further and now can train about 30 at one time and give each one personalized attention and create an environment of positive supportive energy.
So I ask you a question… Do you have very much positive supportive energy around you? Or do you feel like you are trying to be the healthy influence in an unhealthy environment? Having a support group, even if it is one person, can radically change the results that you will get!
In this video Sarah and Angie (who are sisters and workout at MamaTone together) show some great exercises that you can do with a partner. Many of these exercises you could modify to do by yourself, but remember my motto, “It is much more fun to workout with a partner or in a group!”
