Many people cannot afford having a personal trainer motivate and guide them through training. Using a program that has been professionally designed by a personal trainer is affordable, simple to use…
So we are in the middle of winter and you realize that your jeans are sitting a bit tight around the waist, your energy levels are low and you have not stepped foot into the gym for about a month now.
There is a way out of that rut and the first thing you need to do is to make a decision that you are going to change your lifestyle.
Many people are way too busy these days to be wasting time on going to the gym with no plan or purpose in mind. You jog on the treadmill for 10 minutes (without a sweat), then you drag your feet to the rowing machine (thinking this will probably burn off that cake you had last night) and you end up just stretching in the end (and getting a smoothie) because you are unsure of what to do next.
Countless people wake up aspiring to head to the gym, only to find out that they have no exercise schedule to follow therefore become de-motivated to exercise and end up not going.
Online training/fitness programs is a great way to receive guidance in exercising specific muscle groups each week and in utilizing your time effectively through working up a sweat. Through following an exercise program, you will start to move closer to achieving your goals, gain confidence again and always have a prepared program waiting for you.
Benefits of Online Training Programs.
Many people cannot afford having a personal trainer motivate and guide them through training. Using a program that has been professionally designed by a personal trainer is affordable, simple to use and will keep you challenged without having to pay the extra fees.
Designed according to your needs.
The Personal trainer constructs the program according to your needs, for example if your goals are to tone your body-strength training such as squats and triceps dips will be incorporated in the program. Every day will be designed to target different muscle groups and each exercise will be specifically aimed at achieving your goals. The Trainer will formulate the program in order for it to be adaptable especially to those who have injuries.
I once designed a program for a client who had struggled with her lower back due to pregnancy and once she started exercising again, slowly but surely her core became stronger, her muscles became more defined and started to love her body again. It is important for a trainer to identify the ‘weak spots’ a client may have to ensure the program is properly suited to the client’s body.
The great thing about going to the gym (or training at home) with a planned exercise program is that there are a variety of exercises you can perform each week. It will keep you motivated, challenged and inspired to keep moving. A planned training program will ensure that you never become stagnant in your training & throughout the weeks, you will notice how much stronger your body becomes.
The benefit of using an exercise program, is that you are still able to contact the trainer if you have any questions regarding the program. We live in a tech savvy world with Facebook messenger and WhatsApp at the tip of our fingers, so if you ever need to contact the trainer-the apps are available. The trainer will assist you in nutrition advice, injury prevention and guidance in techniques. Furthermore, the trainer is able to keep you accountable for the days you exercise as well as motivate you during the tough weeks in winter (we understand the struggle)
Once you start with your program, you can use it anywhere you like-whether you are at home, away on holiday, looking after your kids or outdoors. There is no specific time you need to adhere to, making it suitable for your timeframe. Once you inform your trainer about your schedule, he/she is able to design it according to your desires, for example if you are a frequent traveller- the trainer will devise the program where no equipment is required, making it simpler for you to work up a sweat.
You thinking to yourself “I wish I could afford a personal trainer” but having an online training program from one of our trainers is just as motivating! What is great about using an online training program is that all the exercises are planned for you, specifically designed according to your needs and always readily available for your use, at any time of day.
I always say- if you are looking for an excuse-you will find one! There will always be reasons why not to exercise but today is the day you need to choose to look after your body and no matter your age-you are able to get fit and strong again! Do not wait for the Doctor to speak to you about your high blood pressure pills- make a decision to get your body moving again, because after all- it’s the only place you really have to live.
It all starts with a decision.
