It’s needless to say, a lot has changed over the past year. We’ve gone from a world of jammed packed gym classes to not knowing when our next workout might be possible. While we’ve been lucky living in our paradise here in New Zealand, it’s important to take a step back and think, what can I do to make sure I’m making my life as stress-free and easy as possible. Can online personal training really help me.
When schedules get hectic and new or old stresses enter your life, it’s easy to put going to the gym on the backburner – and usually for good reasons. That one week off turns into two, then into three, and soon the hard work you’ve put in is replaced with bad food choices and a lack of sleep.
While we cannot promise joining an online personal training program will fix life’s nitty-gritty annoyances, it’s a huge step in creating an atmosphere and routine that’s easy to stick with and makes your life that one bit easier.
After a year of ups and downs, the entire world has learned the conveniences of Zoom. Things we once thought weren’t possible to do at home are now common occurrences. We believe online personal training packages are becoming the new normal in the world of fitness, and for good reason. Here’s why:
Take your online workout with you
Don’t get us wrong; gyms have heaps of benefits. However, one significant problem is that you can’t take them with you. Out of town for the week, off to visit family or friends, away for a work trip – while it’s easy to say you’ll fit in a run while you’re away or train extra hard when you’re back, with no accountability, it’s easy to put your workout out of mind.
By joining an online personal training course, you give yourself the possibility to workout wherever you please. On a nice day, head down to the beach or a nice grassy spot set up your phone or laptop, and join your personal trainer or group class for an epic workout. To gain motivation, sometimes all you need is a change of scenery.
Enjoy online personal training with personal space and cleanliness
If there’s one thing that 2020 taught us, it’s that humans love to spread their germs. No matter how much you sanitise and wash your hands, there’s no way to know if others are doing the same. Gyms just happen to be a germs paradise, with plenty of opportunities to jump from avid gym-goer to avid gym-goer. Plus, classes are typically held in tight spaces closed off to the rest of the gym, creating an atmosphere perfect for germs to spread.
Want to avoid that altogether? Online group personal training sessions are your answer. You’ll still get the wonderful benefits of group classes while working out in a place you feel comfortable and confident in.
Science endorses a shift to online workouts with bodyweight approach
Many elite athletes have switched over to bodyweight training, compared to classic gym workouts. The reason for this is simple; your body provides precisely the amount of resistance you need without causing strain and tension. By focusing on dynamic exercises, like squat jumps and lunges, you’ll be training multiple muscles of your body while inadvertently working on your fitness and flexibility.
The difficult part of bodyweight exercises is knowing what to do. One can only do so many pushups, situps, squats and lunges before getting distracted and checking what’s in the fridge. By joining an online personal training session, you’ll learn new techniques and have the push and encouragement to give the session you’re all.
We promise you’ll never second guess bodyweight exercises again. Don’t believe us? Try holding a squat with your arms stretched out for 1 minute and feel your entire body working to keep you in that position!
How do I get started with an online personal trainer?
Whether you’re already an avid gym-goer, trying to get back into your routine, or brand new to working out, Body Fit has programs to suit your every need. First, you’ll have a one-on-one training session with your online personal trainer to learn the ins and outs of working out at home, decide on your personal goals and what routine will enable you to achieve impressive results.
Once you’re comfortable, you’ll be signing up for various online group classes to challenge yourself and learn new techniques. As you continue your journey, your personal trainer will be with you every step of the way, ensuring you’re feeling motivated and have all the tools and knowledge to pursue new goals.
