Small group training blends the best of group fitness, the motivation of working out alongside like-minded individuals in a specialized format, with more attention similar to personal training. Groups of typically 6-8 participants per one trainer are led through workouts. These classes are held in sessions (typically 6-8 weeks long). Registration is required to reserve your spot. Trials are not available.
