The Competitive Spirit
Personal Training draws its inspiration from military boot camps. It is for this precise reason that exercises and activities are designed by army fitness coaches. While the predominant goal of personal training is to help you to achieve your fitness objective, working together in a group has a lot of advantages to offer. Just the way a military boot camp operates; participants in a fitness boot camp also train hard every day and help each other thereby contributing to team’s harmony.
In a typical personal training session people usually pair up or work in groups that could be either homogenous or heterogeneous. They participate in various intense and challenging physical activities in the group they are a part of. In such instances, you do not participate to stay or get fit and lose weight but to provide your team mates with the social support that is necessary to get the same kind of results. This is because of the inherent differences in personalities. While some get acclimatized to the environment and can quickly get along the flow, few others could find it difficult to adjust. This is when team spirit and cohesiveness play a huge role.
Also, because of the dynamic nature of exercises, the interest levels remain high. A healthy competitive spirit exists between the teams and also intra teams. People compete with each other to progress and be ahead of others. Games and activities at personal training are designed in a way such that healthy competition is encouraged. This is because the very design of every game necessitates a winner thus bringing out competitive spirit in everyone. At the same time, since you work in groups, you also help your fellow team members to obtain the same results.
Personal training encourage competitive spirit. These sessions have become widely popular in organizations and have become an indispensable part of the corporate culture. Companies make use of exercises to promote team growth and facilitate a harmonious relationship in an organization.
Personal training makes use of challenging and intense activities to involve the participation of everyone who enrolls in these sessions. You are more or less forced to participate in every activity thereby helping you lose weight or reach your fitness goal and more importantly, to improve competitive spirit.
