What is Group Training?
Group Training involves exercise with up to 7 other people all being lead by a qualified and experienced coach. The trainer will demonstrate exercises and mentor you through safe and effective methods, measuring and recording progress at key milestones. Due to the highly interpersonal nature of this type of training, everyone collaborates on motivation and spirit to create a charged environment.
What takes place during a Group Training session?
You’ll begin with 5-10 minutes of warm up to ready the body for exercise. The “work” part of the session (40-50 minutes) typically involves full body exercises using bands, balls, dumbbells, and your own weight, plus short periods of cardio. The session ends with 10 minutes of static stretching. Nadeen’s role is to motivate, support and instruct you through your program.
How long is each Group Training session?
Sessions are 60 minutes in duration. This breaks down into a 5-10 minute warm up, 40-45 minutes exercising, and 10 minutes cool down and stretching. The session will be paced to meet your group’s fitness level, making sure you’re challenged but not beat.
How many sessions do you need to see results?
Group Training programs vary in length depending on your situation and goals. Generally you’ll need a minimum of 8 sessions with Nadeen to develop a routine and notice changes like improved balance, strength, and weight loss. The real benefits come through regular exercise and you can expect to see significant improvements after 2 months.
Where does Group Training take place?
Nadeen has relationships with multiple gym locations in downtown Vancouver and also runs outdoor sessions in the Vancouver area. Outdoor locations for Group Training include Ceperly Park, Second Beach in Stanley Park, Coopers Park Yaletown, and Guelph Park in Mount Pleasant.
What if you’re unfit?
Even if you haven’t been active in some time, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly and positively your body will react to regular exercise. Nadeen will offer you modifications so you’re able to workout at your own pace, regardless of who else you’re training with. Training in a group has also shown to elevate individual fitness levels.
What if you have an injury?
Many of us suffer from knee, shoulder or low back pain caused by injury. An effective exercise program will help to rehabilitate the problem area and alleviate pain. You won’t be doing exercises that agitate your injuries. Modifications are always available so let Nadeen know if something doesn’t feel right and she’ll help you switch it up.
Who will you be working out with?
Most people who sign up for group sessions have a similar goal to improve their fitness level, manage stress, and be healthy! Men and women of all ages and backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to come train and be part of a group.
