Are You a Gym Loner?

Do you enjoy the solitude of running on the treadmill with your favourite tunes as your only companion? Or do you perhaps feel that you would achieve so much more if only you had somebody to inspire and motivate you? Training in a small group or with one dedicated partner is one of the most effective ways to give your training the push it needs.

Depending on your personal preferences, there are a variety of options to ideally suit your training style:

  • You can opt for a one-on-one training session with a professional personal trainer. Their expert advice will tailor a training programme to suit your individual goals, fitness levels and body type. And in case you don’t know, personal trainers have a rather renowned reputation for keeping you tough when you feel like quitting.
  • Or for a slightly less stringent approach, buddy up with your best mate. It still makes you think twice before hitting the snooze alarm when you know that your mate is waiting for you at the gym. And it’s really fun to have somebody encouraging you while you both gasp for air together.
  • Small group training sessions are ideal if the cost of a one-on-one personal trainer is a bit out of your budget. Group training sessions have one personal trainer and up to 6 participants. These sessions have the benefit of still offering the individual attention that larger classes don’t.
  • Boot Camp or Xpress Personal Training is by far one of the most successful ways to push your fitness and determination to levels you did not know you even possessed. There is something about not wanting to ever be the first one to quit that drives our motivation to keep up with the pack.

So whichever training style your choose, each one is guaranteed to present many benefits and rewards.


Knowing that you can always depend on your team to be there when you don’t feel you have the energy for another gym session, will inspire you to go. You are accountable to your team and your trainer which goes a long way to achieving your goals instead of giving up.


Being part of a team is a great way to stay motivated. It’s fantastic to have other people cheering you on and believing in you. And motivation leads to accomplishment. It is such a rewarding feeling when you actually achieve your goals.


Training in a group means that you have a set timetable for the week ahead. It helps your planning process and means that you will achieve more than simply attending gym only when random inspiration strikes.


Group training is a tried and tested method for producing results. You’ll rapidly notice an increase in your fitness level, muscle tone and weight loss. And best of all, it won’t feel gruelling or as much like hard work as slogging ahead on your own does.


Being part of a team is fun. There’ll be jokes, laughs and silly moments along the way that help gym to be a fun, enjoyable experience. You’ll probably also meet some amazing new friends who share your goals and interests. We’re already sensing your renewed excitement and motivation. Go on, give it a try! And if the first group style doesn’t feel quite right, don’t despair; try a slightly different approach until you find the perfect small training group that keeps you motivated, enthusiastic and hungry for more.
