The Differences Between Online and Virtual Fitness Training

Not sure what the differences between online and virtual fitness training are? Think they're both basically the same? While the two terms sound interchangeable, there's a (virtual) world of difference between them. 

With most of us hunkering down for the next few weeks (at least) and most gyms shuttered because of COVID-19, there's never been a better time to look into online or virtual fitness training. But as you'll soon find out, a Calgary virtual personal trainer or virtual personal training is much different from its online cousin. Let's take a look at how they differ. 

Do you want to not only lose weight, but keep it off? At Jensen Fitness our programs are designed to do just that. They're all about showing our clients how to create new and healthy habits so they can maintain their results for a lifetime.

The Difference Between Online and Virtual Fitness Training

It's pretty simple really. Online fitness training is conducted by following through a prerecorded workout, while virtual personal training happens in real time via a video conferencing application like Zoom or Skype. That's it. That's the difference.

The REAL Difference Between Online and Virtual Fitness Training

Surely there's more to it than just that, you say. And there is. The real difference between the two, however, lies in the different BENEFITS they provide the trainee. Each has the same stated end goal of providing health and fitness to the person on the other end of the screen, but how they provide this is where they differentiate.

Benefits of Online Fitness Training: Freedom and Flexibility

By far the biggest benefit online fitness training provides is its freedom and flexibility. You choose when to workout and can interrupt the lesson at any time to deal with your kids or increasingly annoying dog who doesn't understand why you're home all the time now but not playing with him. By selecting the workout program and following along at your own pace, you're the one in charge of your workout. For better or worse.

Benefits of Virtual Personal Training: Accountability and Customization

How many of us need to be committed to a workout in order to follow through with it? Most? By choosing virtual personal training in Calgary or a Calgary virtual personal trainer, that's exactly what you're doing. You're committing to your workout and will be held accountable if you blow it off. That's some pretty good motivation. You also receive a tailored and customized workout that aligns properly with the goals you're trying to achieve. This enhanced customization can especially help if you're working your way through an injury or need to modify any exercises.

In the end, whether you choose an online personal trainer or a virtual personal trainer, it all depends on how you best workout. If you're someone who gets up and goes to the gym three or four times a week without fail, then online fitness training is probably your best bet. On the other hand, if you're someone who requires a bit of a kick in the butt and some accountability when it comes to completing your workouts, or you require a customized workout plan, then a Calgary virtual personal trainer is for you.
