I remember some months back, when I enrolled in a fitness class, initially I didn’t find it funny, though I endured it for some weeks but I had to stop, because fitting exercise into a busy schedule can be a roadblock to a successful regime. However, people do not need to dedicate large amounts of extra time to exercise.
Experts in the field of fitness are saying one should consider online fitness training, with a computer, smartphone or tablet, and a workout pro on the other end, one can achieve this goal.
Fitness training involves engaging in physical activity and increasing the heart rate beyond resting levels. It is an important part of preserving physical and mental health.
According to the most recent National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted by researchers across the globe, it shows that more than 2 in 3 adults are overweight or obsessed.
The same survey found that around 1 in 13 adults have extreme obesity and face an increased risk of severe health complications.
Some websites offer live action, two-way trainer-led workouts with the instructor’s supervision and instructions as you go.
Others offer customized routines that you follow from a video library or with an app. Many will track your progress and update your routine as needed.
Some provide monthly consultation through phone calls or video chats or feedback, when you send in a videotaped workout, and answer your questions via text.
As you investigate the choices, it is imperative to check that the trainer is certified by an established fitness organization.
There is also wisdom in asking for references and reading of comments on social media, mostly Instagram, not just testimonials posted on the website. You also need to beware of unrealistic promises. Compare the costs from different companies so that you know what you’re getting for your money.
The benefits of regular physical activity are wide-reaching and should form a part of every person’s day to help them remain healthy.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend at least 2.5 hours of moderate cardio activity or 1.25 hours of vigorous cardio activity every week, plus two days of strength training.
Online training isn’t right for everyone, especially if you’re out of shape or have medical issues. But even then, it could help during the second stage of a fitness plan after getting an in-person assessment and workout routine.
