Online training due to the current COVID lockdowns
Staying motivated during COVID lockdowns can be difficult, especially when it comes to your health and fitness. Ideally, gyms would be open, and personal trainers would still be doing face to face sessions. During a pandemic, however, reality isn’t always ideal. Fortunately, innovative solutions, such as online training, have emerged to fill the fitness void.
Online training provides those in lockdown with a way to keep motivated, stay consistent, and continue working towards their fitness goals. Consistency is the key to getting good results, and anything that minimises disruption to your workout routine is invaluable.
Advantages of online training
During a lockdown, online training has the obvious advantage of allowing you to continue your fitness routine unimpeded. Additionally, online programs offer other benefits, such as:
Convenience is a winning feature of any online program. The ability to log in at any time of the day, in the comfort of your own home, is handy at the best of times. During a lockdown, convenience is crucial. No one must enter your home for you to exercise online, and you don’t need to travel anywhere. All sessions take place wherever you are, whenever you’ve got the time, meaning you never have to miss a workout.
Flexibility is the close cousin of convenience. If you’ve ever had to cancel a PT session or abandon a trip to the gym, you’ll understand the value of a flexible training program. Pre-recorded sessions allow you to fit exercise into your schedule, regardless of any unforeseen events. If you miss a planned session, simply complete it later, and you’ll have no trouble maintaining that ever-important consistency.
Work Hard – Train Hard – Play Hard.
Pre-recorded training programs are an affordable way to meet your fitness goals. Online sessions don’t require you to see a personal trainer directly. Therefore, costs remain low, which can be a blessing for anyone suffering financial strain under lockdown. Financial pressure need not disrupt anyone’s fitness journey.
The ability, at any time, to pick a workout that best fits your dynamic situation is appealing. Perhaps you’re sore from a previous session and want something light. Or maybe you’ve got some frustrations to work out and need high intensity. Whatever the mood or situation, a good online program offers variety and caters to all fitness levels, from beginners to intermediates and advanced.
Excercise better – not less.
Losing direct access to your personal trainer or being locked out of the gym can be jarring. Therefore, maintaining a strong support network during lockdown is crucial to staying motivated and sane. Picks PT runs a private Facebook group, where those undertaking online training can be part of a lively community. We also offer regular catch-up calls with our personal trainers, so you never have to feel alone.
