Why You Need a Virtual Fitness Coach
There is so much technology out there today. We have more opportunities and more is accessible to us than every before. Services that used to be limited to brick or mortar can now be done online, often with face-to-face video communication. The same goes for gyms and fitness programs.
It should go without saying that fitness is an important part of life. Exercise relieves stress, helps us sleep, manages our bodyweight, makes our bodies stronger, and helps us live longer. And that just a few of the benefits. However, sometimes, it’s hard to make fitness a consistent part of your life. Even though we know we should do something, we don’t always have the knowledge or motivation to do it. People often say, “I know I should workout, I just don’t do it because (insert excuse here).” Or, we might hear, “I know I should workout, but I don’t know what to do.” This is where a coach steps in.
What Will A Virtual Fitness Coach Do
When you make the decision to hire a fitness coach, you are making a decision to bring someone in your life to force you to do what you know you should do. You are literally paying someone to keep you accountable. Your fitness coach is a neutral, unbiased, unattached third party in your life. This allows your fitness coach to look at what you are doing well and evaluate where you are struggling without being clouded by emotions.
4 Reasons You Need a Virtual Fitness Coach
- Accountability: This is number one. As humans, we hate going back on our word. When you work with a fitness coach, that coach is going to make you set tasks and then hold you accountable for completing those tasks. A fitness coach won’t yell at you, or get frustrated, when you fail. He/she will work with you to determine triggers and roadblocks to work through.
- It’s Designed for You: You will work one-on-one with your fitness coach to put together a fitness program that is designed for you. This is a personalized program. We aren’t talking about a customized program. A customized program is a general program that has been modified. On the contrary, your fitness coach will start from scratch because you are a unique person with unique goals and needs.
- Personal Attention: When you are in a fitness class, you will receive some attention from the class coach. When you are working with a virtual fitness coach, you get full attention.
- Regular Check Ins: Your fitness coach will check in with you weekly, if not more. This will depend on your desired level of service. Some will want personal training. In those instances, your fitness coach will be with you virtually every time you train. If you simply want personal programming to do on your time, you fitness coach will check in once a week to make sure you are on track.
