An online personal trainer is a convenient and accessible means to a healthier life, but what do you need to know about online trainers? Let’s take a look…
Online Personal Trainer: What You Need to Know About Online Training
The Problem With Online Personal Training
These days we tend to take the easy route for just about everything. If we can use the internet to get something done, we will. The problem with this is that, in order to get the best service from your trainer, your trainer needs to get a better idea of who you are, concerns you have, special needs you have, and considerations that you require – something that requires one-on-one contact.
Additionally, the very nature of personal training makes the physical aspect of online training impractical. The purpose of hiring a personal trainer is to get more from your exercise and nutritional plans. Going at it alone, online resources can be helpful, but with a trainer, you are dedicating yourself to getting the most out of your fitness efforts. You are paying for catered service designed for YOUR health and that service needs to be tweaked on a daily basis to take your daily energy level and daily needs into consideration. The whole point of having a personal trainer to work with is having a fitness expert work with YOU and not to have you working with a generic fitness program.
It’s also important to consider that when you use an online trainer for the physical aspects of training, there is no one available to watch you perform exercises and routines. This means that if you are practicing something incorrectly, you stand a very good risk of hurting yourself because there is no one there to correct you and prevent you from repeating the same mistake again.
Online Aspects of Personal Training
As a personal trainer who believes in one on one care and curating a personalized health and fitness program, I believe that top of the line service requires building a professional relationship. That doesn’t mean that online health and fitness resources aren’t helpful. I often use online services to communicate with clients who have questions between training sessions. I also use online resources to recommend nutritional plans, meals, and supplements to my clients. By using these resources, my clients have access to quality nutritional information and products without having to pay a fortune or guess which supplements and nutritional are right for them.
So What Are My Overall Thoughts on Personal Training Online?
Personally, I believe that there are benefits to using online resources for nutritional needs associated with fitness plans, but when it comes to the physical aspect of training, it’s always better to get out there and work with a trainer in person!
