Virtual fitness training is a service where a certified personal trainer guides you to achieving your fitness goals. There are many ways a virtual coach can help an individual get to their fitness goals, some of which are through video and phone training sessions, through providing personalized workouts which individuals can do on their own, through personal nutritional guidance, and by providing the support and motivation that everyone needs to get to a goal.
Virtual training has many benefits, some of which are having a personal coach that makes sure you are on track and are doing the right things to get to your fitness goals; having the convenience of never having to leave your home, thus getting more fit on your own time; having your personal issues addressed, such as a unique meal plan that works with your body type and personal fitness goals, and / or addressing injuries that are not always addressed by just following a generic workout template from a magazine; lastly, virtual training is more economical than the sum of having a gym membership plus the additional costs of a personal trainer and nutritionist.
Why do you need a coach? Just like in school and sports, students and athletes always have someone to guide them through a subject or to the finish line. The teacher/coach not only provides the knowledge and tools to achieve the goals, but they are also the cheerleader and major supporter of the individual in achieving their goals. Having a coach is essential and when the relationship is based on trust, knowledge, and understanding, the relationship is invaluable. Additionally, how spectacular is it to have a coach who is there for you whether by video, phone, or email during the times that work for you? Just like Hollywood stars, you have a trainer and nutrition coach on speed dial!
