5 Benefits of Small Group Training Exercise Fitness Classes

Small group training (also known as group exercise classes, gym classes or group training) is one of the best ways to get in shape, lose weight, build a better body and sustain a healthy lifestyle. Group training classes in Cork are on the up and here at One Arena we can help you fulfil your open exercise goals while having fun in small group fitness training classes.

Before we start, what exactly is small group training?

SGT stands for small group training which consists of a small group of people performing a variety of exercises to help lose weight, build muscle and improve cardiovascular health. 

Small group fitness training at One Arena involves a maximum of 10 members and 1 to 2 coaches per session.  

Our small group training program consists of 4 different sessions that are full-body sessions and use both resistance training and high-intensity cardiovascular training to help our members achieve their health goals. Each small group training session lasts for 45 minutes.

But what exactly are the benefits of small group training fitness classes?


1) You get a qualified personal trainer to work with you in our Cork gym

Possibly the best thing about small group exercise training is that it’s led by a professional Cork based PT. Unlike signing up for a Cork gym membership and going it alone, joining a small group training class is the next best thing to having a personal trainer, which makes it an affordable way to spend your time working out with a personal trainer who knows how to help you achieve your goals.


2) Small group training is more cost effective than personal training in Cork

Attending a group exercise class may make you work harder if you’ve got that competitive edge or if you don’t want to be left behind. Studies show that small group training fitness exercise attendees work harder when working out in a small group fitness class than if training alone.


3) There’s less chance of injuring yourself

With the help of a certified and qualified personal trainer at your disposal at our Cork City gym you can have a professional watching over and they can correct your poor technique – you can also learn how others train in the small group training classes!


4) It’s really easy

Since our Cork personal trainer is responsible for making the workout plan you don’t have to do any real thinking – it’s all sorted for you the moment you join the small group training fitness class – all you have to do is arrive at the gym, follow the personal trainer’s instructions and leave – simple as that!


5) You’ll make new friends!

Through regularly attending the small group training fitness classes you’ll naturally make new friends and even create friendly competition or egg each other on during your small group training fitness classes in Cork. It’s always a great experience starting a fitness journey with other like minded people!
