WeTRAIN: Making Fitness Social

Some of the many reasons I love teaching group exercise classes, are some of the same reasons I attend group exercise classes for my own training. I love that you’re not in it alone and if you pick the right class you can even get that community feeling.

I can’t speak for every class or every studio out there, but many times, once class is over, everyone just leaves and thats that. Whereas with Personal Training, the connection between client and trainer actually goes beyond your weekly session(s).

So, maybe, you could get the best of both worlds? The camaraderie and the social aspect?! The attention to detail from your trainer and the ability to have the session tailored to your own goals? Yup. That is basically why WeTRAIN exists. To bridge the gap.

The sessions are all small group so there will only ever be a maximum of 7 other people with you. From a Trainer or Host (as they call us) perspective, this means I’m able to keep a good eye on everyone during the 45 minutes and ensure they’re working to the level they committed to (you can choose ‘Chilled’, ‘Medium’ or ‘Beasting’).

I’ve been leading Tuesday evening sessions (630pm & 730pm) with WeTRAIN on Clapham Common throughout the Summer; it’s been an amazing opportunity to get some fresh air, soak up the sunshine and meet new people. There is so much going on in the area too – check out the blog post I wrote for them of places to get your weekend brunch fix.

With the cost of living currently so high in London, it can literally be a struggle to find money to spend on fitness so I think WeTRAIN have a bright future ahead of them offering a quality service at an affordable price.

There are so many different sessions available (currently only in SW London at the moment) that you will be spoilt for choice! Yoga, Barre, HIIT… and WeTRAIN have so many things up their sleeves for us…

Stay tuned….!

Have you ever used a Personal Trainer?! What do you think of the WeTRAIN concept?!

    Love this. Seriously, I can't stop enthusing about WeTRAIN, the balance of social with dedicated leading really sets it apart.
