Let’s face it, when it comes to having a personal trainer, it’s the accountability – knowing that you have to answer to someone else – that matters the most. When choosing a training program, you might want to consider going for an online one; they usually offer higher flexibility at a fraction of the cost. If you set your goals and are willing to make a change, an online fitness program might just be the right thing for you – you’ll be able to unleash your full physical potential. Here are a few tips from Kemo Marriott, founder of Holistic Motions, to ensure you make the most out of your online fitness program.
Find out how you will be tracked
Different programs use different measures to keep track of your goals. From the use of photographs, girth measurements or even blood tests, there’s a wide range of metrics available to measure your goals against. In some programs, you’re even given a fitness tracker like Fitbit or a Withings scale. These will help benchmark your performance whilst giving your coach all the information they need to tailor your program. Thus, it’s important you find out how your trainer will track your metrics to be able to choose a program that fits your personal goals.
Find out how your program will be provided
From guidebooks and online videos to one-to-one sessions, you might get access to your trainer in a wide range of platforms. If you’re new to the world of fitness you will most likely need an online library of videos explaining even the most basic exercises. If you’re a more seasoned fitness fanatic looking to up your game, you might need bespoke training solutions. Given your current fitness level, make sure the program is tailored to your particular goals and past experience.
Find out how much contact you are given with your trainer
We’ve mentioned that accountability is the key to success in any program, so you should determine how you would be kept accountable. Will you have a weekly Skype or phone call? Will you be allowed 24/7 email or text support? These are key considerations, as having constant contact with your trainer will help you when you’re feeling like giving up.
Will there be a nutrition program?
Whether you’re looking for a drastic transformation or you just want to start looking after yourself a bit more, a nutrition program can make all the difference. Find out whether your training plan will provide nutrition guidelines and how it will be specifically tailored to you and your goals.
Put in the work
Once you’ve decided on a training plan that suits your needs and lifestyle, it’s high time to listen to their advice and follow their guidelines. Schedule in your workouts and ensure you make the necessary arrangements to be able to follow your nutrition program. Get yourself a fitness tracker if needed and ensure you’re ready to give your everything – success will then become inevitable.
