The golden ratio: A line is divided into two parts and the longer part (a) divided by the smaller part (b) is equal to the sum of (a) + (b) divided by (a), which both equal 1.618. It may sound complicated, but when seen in nature, the ratio all comes down to aesthetics. The golden ratio achieves perfect harmony through proportion, and it’s been applied across disciplines for centuries. First math, then art, architecture, and design. And the latest is fitness. 

Though not a new concept, small group training recently has pulled ahead as the health and fitness industry’s answer to the golden ratio. With one trainer leading a group of five to seven members, small group training achieves the perfect balance. Members get the energy of a group fitness class, while benefiting from the individualized attention of personal training. Not only will your members love it, but your club will too. Below, see four reasons you need to consider small group training at your club.

Build Community

Your club is a pillar of your community, but as membership grows, it can be difficult for members to get plugged in and stay connected. Small group training provides an ideal platform for members to meet other members and begin building meaningful relationships within your larger club family.

Keep Members Engaged

Studies show that individuals are less likely to cancel exercise plans when they involve other people. A small group training program provides members with the accountability they need to keep coming back to your club. It’s easy to skip that 6 a.m. cardio session when you’re the only one who will know if you miss it. When six others are waiting for you to show? Not quite so easy. Accountability to small group training means stronger loyalty to your club.

Provide Member Value

People love personal training because it produces results. Members get one-on-one time with a trainer whose sole focus is to help them reach their fitness goals. Unfortunately, for many, personal training can be costly and inaccessible. Small group training provides a comparable alternative with plenty of personal attention at a fraction of the cost. 

Make Gains for Your Club

Financially, small group training is as beneficial to your club as it is your members. With personal training, one trainer can serve five members in five hours. With small group training, that same trainer can serve the same number of people in one-fifth of the time. That extra time will save your club in overhead each day.

Now that you’re convinced on small group training, the next step is to make it a reality in your club. To do so, your members need to be aware of their new option and have easy access to sign up. Club Automation’s enhanced mobile app can help with both. Provide members with customized messaging about small group training and let them sign up and manage their training, all directly from the app.
