So you're interested in starting to workout or just get a bit further than where you are at. How do you take that next step?
There is always the option for in person training at your local gym. It is a fantastic way to get in better shape, learn how to do exercises while having a lot of tools at your disposal. That being said, I know there are a lot of people this could be difficult for on various levels. Some people may not be able to afford a multiple times a week session or even one session a week making it difficult to have a plan and stick with it. I know the gym can be an intimidating place if you've never worked out before and have no idea what you are doing, or if you are feeling self conscious about other people watching you workout. Some people may just not have the time to commit to a trainer and have to do the workouts on their own schedule knowing that they have some point during the day free but may not know when that is. Do any of these things sound like you? Do you want to get in shape but need that extra push to stay motivated and committed but don't necessarily can work with an in person trainer? Online distance training may be for you.
With online personal training there are options for how much you can commit to working out while also choosing your availability to work out. You still have that coach and motivator to keep you going and to answer any questions that you may have but at a lower cost. You have the option of working from a local gym, your own home, outside (when weather permits), or an apartment complex gym. There are a lot of options for places to workout so you can feel as comfortable as possible. Additionally, you have someone to help you figure out how to achieve your goals on a personal level. You will be given many options for how many days to work out, what kind of workouts that you want to do, and various levels of communication. I truly believe one size does not fit all for fitness and weight loss and your needs and workouts may be different than others.
With my online training I am available as a coach to you throughout the week and have workouts made specifically for you. The only thing that you need to do is show up for the pre arranged number of workouts that you and I have decided on based on your goals and availability and complete them. I check in with my clients at a bare minimum of 1x per week and usually multiple times a week. It is easy for me to monitor your progress through check ins and schedule times for you to do progress photos and measurements so you can see the progression that you are making. It is important to remember that change takes time but if you stick with it and give it your all you will see not only a difference in yourself physically, but also emotionally, while giving yourself more day to day energy.
On an additional level, nutrition is important and I recommend my clients to discuss with me how they are eating. From there, we talk about the ways to improve upon eating habits and how to make them achievable in real life.
Online coaching does not only mean that you have workouts set up for you on a weekly basis, but there are other options to make things even more feasible. Would it be easier to have a Skype session once a week for a 1/2 hour or an hour? This is easily arranged and can help you make sure that you are correctly doing your workouts and get that extra little push that you need.
I would start by sending you some information on what you would need to get started, the measurements you would need to take, and asking you a few questions to figure out how to plan for you. From there we would do a 30 min Skype consultation that would allow me to explain further what we would be doing and answer any questions that you may have.
In person training is fantastic, but if it is not feasible for you, online training may be the way to go! Send me an email with any additional questions on pricing and availability! If you are interested I would send you a questionnaire and we would move forward from there. Happy training!
