By Jen Azevedo

Working out helps you to feel and look great. However, maintaining a workout schedule and creating your own programming can be difficult. Many people struggle with staying motivated and excited.

If you feel stuck with your training plan and want to get stronger or leaner, joining a small group fitness program is the answer to your needs.

Small group training at the Paseo Club is led by certified instructors who know how to challenge you while keeping you safe. You can learn new movements, new methods of training, and how to have proper form to minimize your risk of injury.

In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about the Tribe small group training program — what types of Tribe classes are taught, what you learn in class, who the class is best for, the schedule, and the cost.

icomp_image_Oscar_Campos_Far_rightWhat is Tribe small group training?

Tribe is a specialty fitness program led by the Paseo Club’s Director of Fitness, Cezanne Youmazzo. Cezanne and her dedicated staff teach four distinct, yet related, Tribe small group training sessions several times every year.

Programs last for six weeks, and each class builds on itself so you can get stronger, faster, and have higher endurance each week. Measure your progress with a before and after performance assessment.

Each class is capped at ten people so you can receive ample one-on-one attention and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow classmates.

Four Tribe Small Group Training programs at the Paseo Club

Choose from four Tribe small group training programs at the Paseo Club. They each focus on fitness and strength-building, but every class is unique, so you can choose the program best tailored to your individual goals.

Tribe HIIT Extreme is a strength and endurance HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) conditioning program. It is the ideal fitness regime for any committed individual. Tribe HIIT Extreme will increase your strength and endurance, help you burn fat and calories, and produce functional, full-body fitness results, leaving you looking and feeling amazingly fit!

Type of class: This is a high-intensity and high-impact program. 
Five common movements in this program: Jump roping, pull-ups, push-ups, animal crawls, and kettlebell swings.
Who this program is best for: This program is for people who are competitive and like high-intensity intermediate/advanced workouts. Participants need to be able to run and jump comfortably and safely. 
Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 am 
Cost: $200 for two days per week for six weeks or $100 for one day per week for six weeks. 

Testimonial: “TRIBE HIIT initially started out as an early morning workout class that my husband and I could do together. Nearly six years later, TRIBE is not just a class we go to, but rather has become all of the things we need in life and at our age to keep us happy, fit, and healthy. The exercises are challenging and keep us in shape, but they are modifiable depending on how you and your body are feeling that day. However, the camaraderie in the class is the true gem. Our 5:30 am TRIBE keeps us accountable and we genuinely care about each other. That's what makes TRIBE HIIT special for me. I may walk away for a week or two and then my TRIBE checks in and gets me back in the class again. Jen's TRIBE class is fire.  I love it and will always find my way to class when I can.”

It’s an awesome small group workout with friends. I receive a lot of personal attention from Jodi, who has been very accommodating, adjusting my workouts to facilitate my physical limitations.”

Type of Class: A mix of high-impact and high-intensity classes with some slow low-impact movements.
Five common movements in this program: Jump roping, pull-ups, push-ups, TRX rows, and planks.
Who this program is best for: This program is great for people who want a challenge but want extra time developing their midsection. 
Schedule: Mondays and Wednesdays at 6 pm.
Cost: $100 for one class per week and $200 for two days per week for the six-week series.

Testimonial: “What I like most about Tribe is it’s a six-week program. I can do anything for six weeks. It’s fun to get to know and work out with the same people each week and it’s taught by the best trainers. Every Tribe program is a little different so you can select the one that best meets your needs and fitness goals. Tribe HIIT/Core is the program that motivated me to focus on my fitness and physical health again. I love it!”
