Group training consists of 3-8 participants with similar fitness goals. As with private training, I will keep your needs and goals in mind, providing you with a safe and effective workout each session. Group training means the additional support of others, the opportunity to socialize and have fun, as well as the tendency to work harder than you would on your own.
