With gyms closing periodically, many people shifting to working from home and previous lockdown measures implemented, the Covid pandemic has demonstrated the importance of creating a health routine that can be done anywhere. Online coaches can assist you in prioritising your fitness and health goals in your schedule.
5 Reasons to work with an online health, fitness and wellness coach:
1. The Power of an Exercise Program
Everyone has a lot of time commitments and tasks to complete each day. Working with an experienced exercise coach will provide structure and routine to your workouts. Online coaches have the expertise and knowledge needed to help you reach your fitness goals in a safe and effective manner, which will help you achieve your goals more effectively.
An exercise coach will help deliver a programme that helps you get optimal results based around your fitness and health goals. Structured fitness programmes will help you to progress based on the time you have available, your current fitness levels, any health conditions you may have and the equipment you have available. Online coaches can deliver a programme that challenges you in a safe and effective manner to excel your health and fitness.
2. The Power of your Mind
When your body is strong, your mind feels strong. Online coaches can help you realise that you are truly worth investing your time and energy in. Great coaches develop clients' self-esteem and confidence as part of your health and fitness programme. Your mind is a muscle that gets strengthened in the same way as the muscles in your body get stronger through exercise.
Hutton Health can deliver mindset videos, activities and tips directly to your phone as part of your program.
3. Personalised Programs
Online coaches can help you set realistic health and fitness goals and a programme to help you achieve them. A personal trainer can evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and suggest areas for improvement before you start working out.
Personalised programs are tailored to your current fitness levels and health needs as well as your fitness goals. They are designed around the equipment that you have (or do not have) available. If you prefer a gym setting, workouts can be provided for the gym to give you direction and structure around your fitness goals.
Personalised programmes challenge you in a safe and effective manner and provide individual strategies to excel your health and fitness.
4. To Boost Motivation
A personal trainer/online coach can help you to stay motivated and hold yourself accountable for your workouts. Regular check ins with the coach help to keep you on track through your programme. The Hutton Health app tracks your progress, effort levels, body stats and workout compliance to help motivate you to stick to the program. Unlike a personal training session, where generally the coach is only available during your allocated time slot to encourage your movement and healthy choices, online coaches are available any time to ask questions, to provide motivation and to encourage sustainable lifestyle changes.
Imagine your online coach as your biggest cheerleader, your accountability partner and your exercise buddy in your pocket, with you every step of the way as you progress through your programme.
5. Accessed Anytime, Anywhere in the World
Your program is delivered straight to your phone through the Hutton Health app. It means that it is flexible and can fit in to your hectic schedule. It is a great solution for busy people. With many people working from home and gyms periodically closing in line with lockdown measures, having a program that can be tailored based on the equipment and space available to you is vital to helping you progress. Post Covid, an online program allows you to fit workouts in around your travel and commute.
Personal trainers provide people of all ages and abilities with a variety of benefits and everyone can utilise them. The most endearing quality of using one is your trainer is right beside you on every step of your fitness journey.
