1. Work out on your own schedule

Since the workout sessions aren’t done in person, you can choose to workout anytime you like. We’re all busy. You don’t want to have to coordinate schedules, or rush to and from work to get to the gym. Another bonus is that many online workouts contain a lot of bodyweight exercises (like this one), which can be completed at home. You’re now in charge of your fitness!

2. Affordability

Not everyone can afford one-on-one personal training sessions. Especially if you want to train more than once a week, personal training can have a pretty hefty price tag. Online personal training can be very cost effective. In some cases, you might find that an entire month of online training is the same price as one hour of one-on-one, in-person training. Your investment in your fitness stretches out a lot longer.

3. Communication

How often do you think you would message an in-person trainer? Well, with online training, you can message your trainer at any time. You can do it through their personal training app, or you can text or call. Being online means the lines of communication are always open. You probably get even more attention from your personal trainer because they are routinely checking in on you through the app.

4. Access to an Expert

Working with an online personal trainer means they don’t even have to be in the same country as you. You can find the perfect personal trainer suited to your fitness goals and needs–whether that’s improving your physical and mental well-being, transitioning to healthy, plant based living, or marathon training–and they don’t even have to live on the same continent as you!

4. Motivation and Accountability

While online training may involve more self-motivation, your online personal trainer is just a click away. He or she will be messaging you each week to check in on your progress and making sure that you are completing your workouts. There really are no excuses anymore!

6. Seeing Results!

Now that everything is online, it’s trackable. Body measurements and photos can be tracked and viewed on a graph or side by side over time. Skeptics think that the one downfall to online training is the safety factor. Online personal training is probably best suited to people who have do have some experience in working out, and just need an extra push and some guidance to get achieve their goals. But online personal trainers usually provide custom exercise videos and clear instructions on how to do a specific exercise–and if all else fails, you can always message them with your questions if you’re unsure how to do it. You’ve got support and fitness advice around the clock, and conveniently in your pocket.

These are the reasons why all you busy people who don’t have time to go to the gym, should stop trying to make yourselves go and get themselves matched up with an online personal trainer instead.
