Small group personal training in action

1) You want a fitness program made specifically for your goals, level, and lifestyle

We’re all unique and have our individual goals and priorities. This should be reflected in the way we train, eat and live.

No two individuals will respond in the same way to a specific training or nutritional prescription. What are some of the factors that could impact this? Genetic variation; biological age; training age (i.e. experience in fitness); current level (i.e. consistency or the lack thereof over a period of time); past injuries/medical history; lifestyle habits - sleep; diet; stress levels, schedule... to name but a few.

Quite a lot of things to account for, right? This is where personalised fitness program comes in. This approach considers all moving pieces in your life and honours your individuality to provide you with best possible prescription... for YOU. 

You are unique and so should be your fitness.

2) You need the accountability of a personal coach

Establishing consistency in the gym is hard. We need discipline in so many areas of our lives that sometimes you just don't have enough mental energy left to push yourself to go to the gym. This is why having a professional coach in your corner who will hold you accountable and support you when the going gets tough is absolutely invaluable. At Deep Foundation Fitness, we make sure we regularly touch base with all our clients and make sure that we make it as easy as possible for them to stick to their training routine.

3) You love training with others

There is nothing more motivating in the gym than having great training partners.

Enjoyment is one of the best predictors of adherence to a training program. If you dread going to the gym, even the best program is unlikely to produce the results you want. Undoubtedly one of the easiest ways to ensure enjoyment is to train with others. The support and motivation that you get from a group are unbeatable.

Why do we love the small group PT model? - It allows us to combine group dynamics while still giving our clients individual attention. Simply put, our clients are getting results while having fun.

4) You want a flexible training schedule

Life is busy as it is. Sometimes you have too much going on and you need to reschedule your session for another day/time. Unlike personal training, where cancelling a session is not well received and might even entail a cancellation fine, at Deep Foundation Fitness, you have the flexibility to change your training slot to a time that better fits your schedule.

5) You don't like overcrowded gyms

Raise your hand if you agree - there is nothing more annoying than finally making time to go to the gym, only to find out that the place is packed and you need to wait 10 minutes to use a piece of equipment. At Deep Foundation Fitness, our training slots are limited to five people, and since we design our gym specifically to serve our model, you'll never have to wait for equipment.

6) You need coaching but you can't afford a personal trainer

Let's face it, not many people can afford to spend 100-120 CHF every time they want to go to the gym. The good news is that you don't need to. If the program has been created specifically for your level and abilities, you won't need 60 minutes of hands-on coaching. The small group personal training model allows the coach to spend time with each client individually and guide them when needed. This will also help you develop autonomy over time and take charge of your training. Best of all, you will get to train with others which will make the whole process much more enjoyable. And to top this up, you will get this for only a fraction of the price of personal training. Click here to find out more about our memberships.

Bonus: You would love to have guidance on nutrition and broader lifestyle choices

Training is only one part of the puzzle when it comes to health and fitness. The other major areas are the nutrition and lifestyle choices that you make. At Deep Foundation Fitness, in addition to a personalised training program, coaching, and access to the gym, all our members receive guidance with nutrition and help with improving lifestyle areas such as sleep, daily energy levels, and much more.
