The world has changed. Life has gone online, at least temporarily and probably for good in many instances. Like all others, the health & fitness industry is being forced to adapt. The businesses and professionals that refuse to do so will find their place in the pecking order drastically diminished when this is all over – if they still have a place at all. But forget the laggards, the rest of us are moving on with our lives. While it might have seemed inconvenient or difficult at first, training from home is fast becoming the norm.
As with so many other aspects of our lives, we’re realizing that there are plenty of benefits to moving into the online space. Many of these are more attractive than what we lost when brick-and-mortar establishments like gyms and Yoga studios shut their doors.
Here are 3 game-changing benefits of training from home.
Enjoy total flexibility
Just to be clear – this has nothing to do with backbends and putting your feet behind your head! The kind of flexibility we’re talking about is the freedom to schedule your sessions for whenever you want and being able to train from anywhere that you have an internet connection.
Gone are the days where you’re limited to the opening hours of your local gym or need to travel far to enjoy your preferred activity. Training from home opens up a whole new world of possibilities, especially for those who work or keep unusual hours and people who live in remote locations with limited access to facilities such as gyms, studios and sporting facilities.
Access a world of expertise
One of the biggest benefits of training from home is that you’re no longer limited to just the health & fitness pros that work in your area. The web brings the world to you and that world is full of experts from every activity you’ve ever heard of and plenty that you haven’t.
Even if you already know what kind of trainer, instructor or coach you’re looking for, you’ll find plenty more options online than you would in even the most developed metropolitan areas. This means you’re more likely to find a trainer that suits your needs and your budget.
Talking of budget, there are a number of ways that training from home is good for yours. Besides giving you access to a range of trainers in different price brackets, taking your training online also has other advantages for your bottom line. You’ll no longer need to pay for membership to a gym, studio or club, you save on transportation costs and drink fewer over-priced smoothies.
The primary expense of training from home is your personal trainer, coach or instructor (if you choose to use one) – and even this is generally less than you would pay for 1-on-1 training in a physical establishment. You might also want to invest in some equipment and decorating your home workout space. Upfront costs like this might be a little intimidating but this one will pay for itself in the long run. You can also build up your inventory and decorate your space over a period of time if need be. Alternatively, just go full spartan – after all, your body is all you really need right!
