To exercise from your living room and have an interactive experience just as if you were at your neighborhood gym!
I am highly fascinated with the ways that technology is enhancing our day to day lives, technology allows us to be more connected than ever in very savvy and conscious ways.
One of my favorite ways technology is demonstrating this said connectivity is through virtual delivery fitness experiences. I write about this topic often and am very much in favor of people joining our industry and becoming wellness consumers. Virtual offerings are bringing new people to the industry and expanding our reach into new places creating more healthy lives!
I have compiled a list of virtual fitness platforms that any person that owns a smart phone, tablet or computer can access and have a fitness experience from their living room.
1. Wello Workouts allow you to pick when and where you want to workout and all you need is a webcam and internet to get started. A personal training will walk you through your workout through a live video stream and since they can see you it acts much like an in person training session. They also offer group to join so you can cheer on teammates! A totally fun way to get moving from home with hands on support.
2. Fitocracy offers private coaching covering fitness assessment, nutritional plan, workouts and accountability. Based only our goals you scan through and select a trainer that fits best with your desired results. From there it is an easy process of connecting with your coach and creating your plan! I personally love the look and feel of this platform.
3. Daily Burn comes in all shapes and sizes! After you choose your desired results and times per week you would like to workout, you are assigned a program and trainer that will help you achieve your goals! I love that Daily Burn offers heart rate monitors that can be synced with the workouts so you can see what your heart rate is and the trainer can coach you per your HR.
4. Bodee Fit offers workouts you can do without equipment! With custom training packages ranging in between 4-12 weeks you can get your tailor maid workout with them! They have other training packages available and do a great job of explaining what online coaching/training is and if it is right for you.
The elevation of the human connection with technology as the vehicle allows for breakthrough new ways to get fit and stay fit. Do you use a virtual/online workout platform?
I welcome feedback and would love to hear what's working for you!
