ERG, Small Group Training

ERG programs are performance based and results oriented.  Our group physical training programs are conducted in the ERG Performance Training Area.  The programs are designed to help people look better, feel better and live better. A variety of modes of exercise are used over one-hour periods of time.  The term group training is currently used in the fitness industry to describe group fitness classes that promote fat loss, camaraderie, and team effort. They are designed to push people a little bit further than they would normally push themselves alone.  The idea is that everyone involved works at their own pace as they team up and work towards one goal, either in pairs, small teams of three or four, or even two teams head on.

ERG participation provides social support for those taking part. This provides a different environment for those exercisers who find it hard to develop a habit of exercise. Participants make friends and socialize as they exercise, although how strict the trainer is depends on the group in the camp.  Indoor boot camps are a growing trend in fitness as they are climate proof and offer a better environment for the exercisers.

There are many other benefits of ERG programs, which includes mental health. It has long been know that regular aerobic exercise can help to reduce high blood pressure, hypertension and combat stress. Part of this is due to the release of endorphins, which act as a mood elevator.

ERG programs run on the BAC 6-week cycle and are fee based programs.
