Small group training session 2 starts on Monday, Oct. 28 and runs through Thursday, Dec. 12. Small group training also known as RazorFitness offers a unique opportunity to explore a new dimension of fitness by blending the camaraderie of group fitness with the individualized attention of a certified personal trainer. Classes meet twice a week for one hour.

Classes are offered at various times throughout the day and take place in the UREC Train Studio in the HPER Building. All U of A students and UREC members are eligible to register for the class. The cost for students to participate in the entire six-week section is $36, for all other UREC membership types the cost is $48. Registration is now open for session 2.  

Long time small group training participant, Billye, started participating regularly in these classes three years ago. "I love the fact that each trainer works hard to identify strengths and weaknesses of each individual, and adjust the workout accordingly." Additionally she noted that the connection she builds with her trainer and other participants helps keep her accountable and coming back week after week.

This semester, UREC introduced Technogym Teambeats to the small group training experience. Teambeats utilizes heart rate training to improve fitness and maximize performance. While heart rate monitoring is optional in order to participate in the class it is a good option for those looking to track their progress. Compatible heart rate monitors are listed online at urec.uark.edu. Participants may also purchase a Polar OH1 Plus at the UREC main office, HPER 225.

Participants may register for small group training session in the UREC main office or online at urec.uark.edu and selecting Member Services. The Fall 2019 schedule, registration packet and more information for all session dates and times are listed on urec.uark.edu.
