Unfortunately social distancing is the new norm these days. However, it obviously creates new challenges in maintaining consistency when trying to stay healthy… especially when your “go-to” options may not be available.
For example, if you’ve been using (or thinking about getting) a personal trainer, those plans may be on hold (although face-to-face restrictions on personal restrictions are being lifted in many parts of the country).
Regardless, the good news is that you can still find an online personal trainer course, which offers a host of other benefits (even if social distancing isn’t a constraint). So it’s worth exploring this type of personal trainer course, and here are 5 tips to help you find the right one…
Try a consultation when exploring online personal training. Your first consultation should ideally be complimentary to provide a general idea of what you can expect from the course, how you mesh with your trainer, and whether the program will meet your goals.
Athletes and fitness enthusiasts take their sports seriously, so they’re quick to share information about their fitness experiences. So you’ll want to look at reviews and testimonials to gain valuable insights about a particular online personal trainer course.
Are you normally a self-starter, or do you often need an extra push? If the second category resonates with you, then look for an online personal training course that provides built-in accountability.
One of the best things about personal training is the additional accountability you’ll have compared to working out by yourself. You’ll have more motivation to stick to a regular schedule, and you’ll push yourself further. You’ll also benefit from options such as reminders, tracking, and messaging with your trainer.
Personal training is supposed to be “personal” right? So consider what customizations are available based on your needs. Some options are semi-customized, while others are fully customized.
Finally, your online personal trainer course should include clear workout instructions and demos (including videos) to ensure you are performing your exercises correctly and safely.
