Virtual Lifestyle Coaching and Why You Need it
When it comes to getting fit, nothing beats a coach to target your workout to your individual needs. Want to tone your abs? A coach can tell you how. Are certain areas more of a “problem area?” A lifestyle coach can give you the right exercises for that, too. But hiring a personal trainer isn’t practical for all women. Personal training can be expensive and a challenge to schedule. Luckily, there is a virtual option. Virtual coaching is a new and growing trend across the world, and it is available through Curves. With many fitness regimens moving to at-home environments, losing in-person coaches has meant some women have also lost motivation to exercise. But a virtual lifestyle coach can keep you engaged and on track with your fitness journey, no matter where you may be.
What is a Virtual Lifestyle Coach?
Virtual lifestyle coaches are just like live personal trainers, except you connect with them online. These online coaches offer the same services, including:
- Instruction on how to go through your full body workout safely and correctly
- Workouts targeted to your body type and weight loss goals
- Exercises to do if you are injured or trying to prevent injury
- Advice on proper strength training techniques 1
- Clear objectives to help you lose weight and get fit
- Motivation and support to push you through the tougher days 2
As anyone who has exercised at home knows, it can be difficult to stay focused among kids, barking dogs, and other household distractions. A virtual coach will hold you accountable and offer the guidance you need.
Benefits of Online Coaching
In addition to the same support and quality fitness advice you get with a live trainer, online coaches come with some additional perks. These include the following:
Lower cost: Depending where you live, in-personal trainers can cost up to $1,000 per month or more. It’s less expensive to work with a virtual coach than it is to work with an in-person fitness coach. This is especially true if you work with a virtual lifestyle coach as part of your Curves membership and MyCurves On Demand with Group Coaching.
Easier scheduling: When you have the flexibility of being able to work out with a virtual lifestyle coach when you want, where you want, you’ll be less likely to skip your total body workout due to a scheduling conflict in your personal or work life.
Constant accountability: An online virtual coach will help keep you motivated and on track just like an in-person trainer would. If self-motivation is a weakness when trying to stick to an at-home full body workout routine, an online coach will help you stick to your fitness relationship goals and keep you accountable for your exercise each week.
A virtual support group: At-home workouts can feel isolating, especially if you recently switched from a Curves fitness club to exercising in your living room. A Curves virtual coach will help you stay connected with like-minded women, so you can share your stories and challenges as part of the Curves community. 3
