Benefits of Virtual Workouts
What is so amazing about technology is that you have the ability to access your favourite trainer anywhere, anytime.
With fitness gadgets, wearable devices, countless apps, interactive equipment and streaming services, we now have immediate access to an unlimited amount of options when it comes to exercise at the click of a button. What the pandemic has done is show us all just how affective and convenient a virtual workout program can be and the consistency you can build to get results.
Is your go-to virtual fitness program the SPB Body Method ? This weekly workout subscription program delivers science-based and strategic workout classes led by Sara that suit every fitness level and fit into any schedule. Professionals, like Sara Picken-Brown, design virtual workouts that make our lives easier and that promise both a heart-pumping, sweat-dripping, endorphin-boosting workout or a self-care, stress-reducing, pain management experience that we can do in the comfort of our own homes.
Here are some of the benefits of workouts that you can do virtually.
1. Manage Your Time Better
Who has 3hours to do the round trip to the gym each day? With busy home based or time-shared work lives seeing most of us sitting behind a computer for long hours, getting consistent exercise into your routine can be tough. With virtual workouts, you have the ability to work out at your own convenience, so you’ll always find the time to fit in a ‘Glow’, ‘Core’ or ‘Stretch’ session. All you have to do is roll out of bed, throw on some clothes, set up your mat and turn on your device. With the time that you save, you can snooze your alarm a little longer and enjoy your workout a little more.
Studios and gyms are expensive, especially when you consider that you need to be a member of a few studios to accomodate your unique and multi-layers wellbeing and fitness needs. Since virtual workouts are available on any smartphone, laptop, tablet or television, you can work out anywhere and with an array of sessions to suit your needs and mood. Take your workout outside, on holiday or make it a social activity with friends.
3. Boost Your Confidence
Gyms and studios can be intimidating, especially if you are new to your workout routine. Virtual workouts give you the chance to go at your own pace and get familiar with the moves and how they feel in your body without the pressure of keeping up with the group.
4. You will feel more motivated
Studies show that working out in groups is more motivating than working out alone, also booking a session that you now you want to turn up to at a set time each day keeps you accountable. Its a proven way of carving out YOU-TIME and when done consistently will see your results soar, which becomes a secondary motivation factor to working out virtually.
5. Beat Workout Boredom
The endless options of virtual classes on offer from your favourite trainers means that you never have to be bored in your exercises program again. Boredom is the number one destroyer of results and motivation in exercise programs, but with endless options, you are more likely to find a class that suits your interests, and you can easily access it in the future.
6. Workout Feeling Safe & Supported
Poor technique and incorrect planning is a big contributor to injury, so instead of working out alone or working out with inexperienced trainers, choose programs and trainers with a proven results based system. Many virtual trainers offer detailed instructions and exercises so that you get the most out of your workout.
