PT8 is our latest offering in personalised group fitness services at Fitness Enhancement. We now offer Small Group Fitness classes offering function training similar to F45, but with smaller numbers and more personal attention, at our Nerang Personal Training studio on the Gold Coast.
Functional Training on the Gold Coast
What does “functional training” mean? It’s all about using your body in a functional manner, just like you would in real life. It involves bending, twisting, reaching, pushing and pulling so you prepare your body for the real life movements you might perform. Things like getting in and out of a car, climbing a ladder, moving furniture, vacuuming, sweeping, getting up off the floor, carrying groceries in from the car, carrying a toddler. Real life movements don’t require you to sit still in a machine and bend one joint and contract on muscle at a time. In real life you have to move your body all together, brace your core, bend your knees, push with your arms, rotate to one side.
The PT8 Difference
Even though we are big believers in functional training, (places like F45 and Crossfit offer this style of training), we also believe you can’t get proper safety and support when you train in a busy, crowded class environment. It’s so important that every session can cater to each individual, with Trainers being able to offer cues and modifications for clients with health issues or injuries. This is why we now offer functional training but in a small group, to give you the one-on-one attention you just can’t get in a crowded group class.
Small group, big results
For group fitness and weight loss, scientific studies have looked at what group size gets the best results. One study compared a group of 30 people to a group of 12 people over a one-year period. The smaller group achieved FOUR TIMES the results of a bigger group. The researchers believe that the smaller group setting provided more a positive and collaborative atmosphere. The researchers said the biggest difference between success and failure was simply “sticking to it”. The more intimate dynamic in the smaller group resulted in better adherence and better results.
