Online Personal Training is something fairly new to the personal training world. You may be unsure of how it works and if you will get the results and accountability you are looking for. This blog is to help you understand online personal training and to show the benefits it has over one on one personal training.
With online personal training you can workout when it fits your schedule. When working with a one on one trainer at a gym you are under the mercy of their schedule. I have an online client who works out at 10 PM most days. She is a night owl and this is what works for her and her schedule. She struggled keeping a schedule with a one on one trainer. Life would get in the way and she would have to cancel constantly. Now she gets her workouts in when time allows for her. Sometimes it's 2pm and other days it's 10pm.
When working out a convenient location is important. If you join a gym that is far away or not conveniently located you are more than likely not going to go. Online training is designed for you to workout at home. With just a few minor pieces of equipment (bands and a few dumbbells) you have a perfect home gym. Of course, the workouts can be designed to be done at a gym or even a hotel room. All the workouts are on video and can be accessed from an app right on your phone. Which means you can take the workout with you anywhere.
Will your one on one personal trainer keep you accountable on a daily basis? Most likely not! With the Good Body there is daily accountability. Plus, skype assessments, emails and support groups. Through the app I can tell if you have checked in and done your workouts. I can even see the amount of calories you are eating. My current online clients can't say enough regarding the accountability.
The price point for online training is less expensive than a one on one trainer. The average cost of a personal trainer, especially if you want one who is qualified, is usually $50-$100 an hour. If you are training with them two times a week you are easily spending $400 to $800 a month. This plus the cost of a gym fee can really add up. With the Good Body you will receive workouts to do 5-6 times a week. This would cost you over $1000 a month working with a one on one trainer. Spending $400-600 a month with online training is more affordable, plus you have the convenience element and accountability.
Talking about convenience, most online workouts will not last a full hour. The Good Body workouts are effective and efficient. You can also split up that days workout, for instance you can do the cardio portion in the morning and then the weight portion in the evening. Your online trainer will design workouts to fit your needs and time.
Online training is a win win. If you are wanting to lose weight or hit any other fitness goals I encourage you to give online training a try.
