#AKT_brain: how to train more effectively individually or in a team?

Individual trainings are held according to a personal plan – on your own or with a trainer. Group workouts are different in terms of physical activity, intensity and type, here several participants are monitored by one coach.

Individual training with a trainer has obvious advantages:

• Their effectiveness and competent implementation;
• Accounting for the characteristics of the athlete’s body;
• Pass safely, under random control;
• Under arrest and motivation;
• More or less flexible schedule.

The main disadvantage of such training is their high cost.

What are the benefits of group training?

• High performance – a person strives to perform sets of exercises in full force and be better than other athletes;
• Formation of a community of people with similar interests – people here are united by similar values;
• Positive emotions from the training and communication of athletes with each other and with the coach;
• Affordable price.

Another plus of group workouts is their variety. You can choose your direction:

• Aerobic training
(aerobics, kickboxing, boxing, tai-bo, cycling and others);
• Power training
(Body sculpt, Lower body, Upper body, ABS, ABL, Pump and others);
• Mixed workouts
(functional, circuit, interval training, TRX – training with loops);
• Dance training
(zumba, belly dance, pylon dance, body ballet and others);
• Low impact workouts
(Pilates, callanetics, fitball, stretching, yoga and others).

To achieve results with both group and individual training, you need to attend them regularly, at least 2 times a week for 1-2 hours.

It is optimal to start exercising individually with a trainer in order to learn how to properly perform basic exercises. And then move on to group training, which will bring more efficiency.
