If you don’t have the extra time to get to a gym or don’t have a gym near you, consider getting fit with online help. Not only is online training easier to fit into your schedule, it’s also far more affordable. You’ll get a personalized workout program and nutritional guidance at a fraction of the cost of individual face-to-face personal training. Whether you’re a busy working mom or dad, have erratic hours or have a schedule that doesn’t work with gym schedules, online training can make it easier to create your own workout schedule and it cost less. That’s a double win.
You won’t miss out on accountability, which is one of the bigger benefits of having a trainer.
Just because it’s online, doesn’t mean it’s like going to a website and following the exercise program when you feel like it. A good online program includes accountability with regular reports to a trainer. It’s either done through email or skyping. You’ll also have access to the trainer’s knowledge, so you can ask questions and even tell about your success.
It’s not all about exercising for fitness, either.
If you’re accessing online training, it should include both exercise and healthy eating. Healthy eating isn’t tricky once you know how to make smarter decisions, but initially, you may need more guidance. Having sample menus for each day and a shopping list really helps make it simpler. It also can provide recipes that taste good and don’t taste “low calorie” or “healthy.” Those descriptions identify rice cakes and food that tastes like vitamins, not real food.
If you want to watch how to do an exercise, rather than read about it, a good online program provides it.
No matter how articulate the writer, it’s not always easy to describe a body movement. What seems like a good description to some people, is unintelligible to others. That’s why providing a video of how the exercise looks can help achieve the best form. Having the right form for any exercise boosts the effectiveness and helps prevent injury.
- Some online programs, like ours, allow you to use it if you sign up for just the online training or use it free as a supplement if you participate in a live program at our gym, like group or private training.
- People often use online programs for their convenience, but also for the price and flexibility. New parents find it a great way to achieve their fitness goals without the need for a babysitter.
- No matter how you choose to train, starting is the most important part. Online training can get you started until you’re ready to take your new found skills to the gym.
- If you don’t need both nutritional training and fitness training, a good online program allows you to choose either one or both.
