Small-group training consists of a coach working with a group of three to eight clients. Keeping the number of participants in the group to a maximum of eight allows the personal trainer to establish a connection with each person while still paying adequate attention to the participants' safety, form, and alignment throughout the workout. Small-group training is the same as personal training, except that instead of being one-on-one, some people train with a single coach. People often choose to work out in a group because it is much more convenient and cost-effective than working out alone.
In a typical training session for this kind of training, the number of participants ranges from four to ten. Personal training in small groups or training in small groups is a group exercise with a coach and between 3 and 6 clients at a time.
