In today’s age, technology has grown in leaps and bounds, bringing the entire world to our fingertips. Every aspect of our lives, our jobs, the way we travel, the way we work, our leisure activities, everything has been affected and made easier by technology.
So why not our workouts too?
I am talking about the ongoing debate about online fitness coaching.
To find out what people really feel about the same, we conducted a survey. These were the results.
So what we realised was that people are open to the idea of online coaching, but don’t necessarily know or understand the benefits of the same.
So here we are!!!
We understand that you are skeptical about the idea. Well, I am here to tell you that the benefits of online coaching vastly outweigh the apparent disadvantages!
First of all, what does an online fitness coach do? Simply, an online coach can help you reach your health and fitness goals with all the convenience of training in your own home, or other personal space. An online personal coach can provide you all of the services a face-to-face professional would.
Listed below are the advantages of online coaching-
No more will you have to miss your workouts because of the weather or the inaccessibility to the gym! With online training, all you need is some space in the comfort of your own home, and you are ready to go!
How many times have you missed your workout because you are travelling, or out of town? Or your kids have their exams going on, or are not feeling well and you need to be at home with them?
With online coaching, you can not only exercise at home, but take your workout with you wherever you go!
With the technology advances that we see today, real-time training and monitoring an online class has become a reality. Your coach could be sitting in another city/country, but with the help of live video training, they are always available to answer your questions and correct you if you are doing something wrong!
All the time in the world
Time isn’t a problem anymore! Missed your morning workout due to other commitments? Just see the recorded workout session and get your exercise quota of the day!
Now you don’t need to search and search for a good workout program, only to find that the gym/fitness club is too far away, or not accessible! All you have to do is switch on your mobile, laptop or tab, and you are sorted!
You can workout at home within your comfort zone, and no distractions around! No shouting, no crowds, no noise, no sharing your personal space with others. You focus on mastering your technique without getting worried of who’s doing what. Just focus on YOU.
Self-motivation plays an important role in getting fit, and when you are responsible for your own workouts, what could motivate you more? With regularly tracking and monitoring your progress, you never miss a workout!
Skeptics think that the one downfall to online coaching is the safety factor. But as we have explained above, when you have live training sessions where your coach can see exactly what you are doing, and your coach is just a click away on emails and calls, what do you have to worry about?
So what do you think of Online Fitness Coaching??
Is it a Yay or a Nay?
