The group training program describes the variety and sequence of workouts that make up your group training offering. Workouts need to be effective, progressive, and desirable, matching the vision that you’ve set up. You’ll need to figure out whether you want the group training programme’s workouts to be centrally managed by a developer at the facility, purchased through a third party group training service, or created by trainers.
Equally important is to figure out the style of class you want to create. Will it be a true class, where everyone is doing the same thing, or circuits, where participants spend a fixed amount of time at each station, whether within a small group or not? This may depend on trainer and equipment availability, and class size.
The training environment will set the tone for your programme. Holding your group training classes in a dedicated location away from the gym floor and group exercise room creates a desired exclusive space, giving you the chance to command a higher price point. The types of equipment you use should reflect your programme’s vision, and need to be versatile, fun, and easy to use.
