Online Personal Training
Online personal training is fast becoming a major change in
the world of training for bodybuilders, power lifters, and strength athletes.
Even sport-specific training often leads athletes and competitors to search for
the best fitness trainers online to improve their game. So what is the great
appeal of having an online strength coach or personal trainer?
The first advantage, as mentioned above, is the ability to
hire a coach who can live a mile, 1,000 miles, or even 10,000 miles from you.
You are no longer confined to the trainers at your local gym; While they can be
great coaches, they can also be mediocre or just not on the level of some of
the online coaches.
The other big advantage is that you are more likely to find
the right trainer for you. Whether you want to increase muscle size, get
stronger, become a competitor, or lose weight and adopt a healthier diet, you
will be able to find trainers online for just that. If you are 50 years old and
you don’t want to work with a 23-year-old coach who has no experience in life
at that age, look for a coach who is older or older than you.
For many athletes, scheduling is often a problem. Life gets
in the way of plans or the gym is too busy when your coach is available; after
all, most only work peak periods every day. However, with online training, your
trainer provides you with the exercise and/or meal plans and allows you to use
them when it fits into your schedule.
This means that if you’re hung up at
work, on a hot date, or just need a day’s rest, you can tailor your training to
that, just as you would without a coach. That flexibility doesn’t normally happen
with face-to-face trainers at the gym, as that would make your other clients
suffer from scheduling changes.
So how does online training work?
It usually begins with an
in-depth consultation, discussing your goals and aspirations, your history with
both weight and life in general, and a careful study of any underlying medical
or emotional conditions that may influence planning. Once that assessment is
done, your trainer will come up with your initial training plan (and initial
nutrition plan if they offer the full service). You will keep track of your
food and drink intake and weights and sets and send them to your trainer,
usually weekly. When prompted, you will also submit photos and/or videos of
your training to help your coach assess your progress, form, and strengths, and
A good coach will modify your workouts and diet as time goes
on in order to realign you with your goals. And that, folks, is the main reason
you need a personal or fitness trainer in the first place – to keep you on track
and bring your expertise as you build your own. Time to get an online coach!
