Small Group Training at Ballard Health Club is a great way to improve your fitness while learning new exercises and training strategies with an expert there to coach you on good form and hold you accountable, while being more affordable than one-on-one personal training.
Do you crave the motivation and camaraderie that comes with exercising in a group, but are intimidated by larger class sizes? The team dynamic that comes with regularly working out with the same small group of people, sharing similar goals, will definitely encourage you to push yourself to your limits and ensure that you get the most out of every workout. Research has shown that when you're exercising alongside someone else, you tend to give more effort than you normally would when exercising alone. Regularly scheduled sessions also help build structure and routine in your weekly workouts, and with consistent attendance you will see noticeable, positive changes in your body.
Personalized Training, in a Team Environment
Adding variety to your workouts keeps your body challenged, your mind eager to grow, and your soul ready to have fun. This can be hard to plan own your own, so let us do it for you! Consistently switching up the workout not only makes training more interesting, but it helps challenge your body in new ways to avoid hitting a plateau. Each trainer offers their own style of training and designs the workout for each of their sessions. Please review the descriptions at the bottom of this page to learn more about what to expect from each trainer's session.

MEET OUR TRAINERS
With Small Group Training, each trainer designs their own program. See below for a description of each trainer’s style.
Aeron’s group training sessions are fun, challenging and educational! Her focus is on developing a supportive and thriving community, knowing that everyone has a unique set of goals, obstacles and ways of learning. Each session is designed to offer a variety of challenging exercises to build and refine skills, increase strength, boost stamina, improve balance and develop a stronger core. You will walk away sweaty, energized and with a smile on your face, knowing what you just accomplished, and you’ll have the confidence and calm to take on your day.
Chassi's sessions focus primarily of strength and conditioning components, adding in mobility exercises specific to that day's training program. Her clients will learn proper lifting technique and correct functional movement patterns while exercising. This opens the door for building lean muscle mass and maintaining cardiovascular endurance, all while creating/maintaining stability and strength throughout the body as a whole.
Small Group Training with Chris will include a mix of strength and high intensity interval training with a focus on partner exercises and teamwork. These sessions will utilize a mix of circuits and strength work to create a fun, challenging and fast-paced workout.
Jake’s group focuses on improving functional fitness by utilizing compound movements and full body interval training to increase client’s overall performance! Whether you are new to the world of fitness, looking to supplement your current routine, change your body composition, or improve strength and endurance, this class will help you reach your goals! You’ll learn new exercises, make friends, and kick butt - all while getting one-on-one attention from Jake.
Lara’s Small Group Training sessions draw on her powerlifting background to focus on building functional strength in a wide range of movements, using barbells, dumbbells, and bodyweight exercises. Over the past year, her SGT clients have mastered push-ups, deadlifted over 200 lbs, and improved shoulder and upper back mobility. Lara also incorporates her yoga and acrobatic training into sessions through customized mobility work and movement play time, or skill practice, to keep the workouts fun, time-efficient, and challenging. She has a passion for helping all her clients feel like the best version of themselves, and hopes everyone walks away from her sessions feeling more free and awesome in their bodies!
Roxy likes to work hard, play hard, and her SGT sessions reflect that. Her goal is to build strong, flexible people who feel confident trying new things. No matter what fitness level you are at, expect to have fun and learn to move in new ways. Expect to leave sweaty and smiling. Roxy has a keen eye for good form, which makes her class safe for all levels and a great introduction to using different types of equipment. From barbells to bodyweight, and kettlebells to battle ropes, we will play with it all.
Opened in 2018, our studio is fully stocked with the best functional strength and conditioning training equipment available.
