If you are looking to get fit in 2020, welcome to the club! So are the rest of us! Having fitness goals is not just a New Years things, it’s usually a year round thing, but nothing like the fresh start of January 1 to make it a priority!
Jen Sincero, author of “You are a Badass” mentioned two of the best things one can do to achieve their goals (whatever they may be) are as follows:
- Make the Decision already!
- Get a Coach
If you’ve made the decision to get in shape, then there’s one more simple step. Get a coach. Here are 10 reasons to invest in a Virtual Fitness Coach in 2020.
A personal trainer can cost a pretty penny. A single session typically costs anywhere from $50-$100/hour. Weeks, months or even years of one-on-one personal training can be unattainable to those who are not movie stars or professional athletes! BUT, technology is a beautiful thing! With tools such as FaceTime, Skype, YouTube and more, a virtual trainer can demonstrate exercises, and even check your form in real time at a fraction of the price of in-person training, The price of the Martino Fit coaching program is actually CHEAPER than a daily cup of coffee.
2 YOUR schedule
In this busy world, sometimes the only time to get a workout in is early in the morning, or maybe late at night. Many professionals and stay-at-home parents alike find simply getting time to the gym a challenge. An online fitness coach is much more adaptable to your schedule. Your workouts, video tutorials and more are available when the time works for you. You can even direct message your coach 24/7.
Sometimes just knowing that you’ll be checking in is what it takes to get up and do what you need to do, even if you don’t really want to! Many online programs miss this component because at the end of the day, no one will really know if you woke up with that 6 am and did the hard work. As a fitness coach for Martino Fit, I actually get an in-app notification when you complete your workout and even if you achieve a personal best!
4 Nutrition guidance and tools
80% of your success will come from from diet! In achieving your goals, your diet absolutely needs to be on point. Understanding macronutrients and how to fuel your body appropriately to meet your goals often go unaddressed in fitness programs, and alternatively, diet programs often don’t speak to the right exercise for body recomposition. Martino Fit only educate you on nutrition, but also provide you the tools to fuel your body for your workouts and achieving your goals. A fast food cheat sheet, library of recipes, weekly meal plans and grocery lists delivered to your app are just a few ways to keep your food game strong. Additionally, our app connects with the MyFitnessPal food logging tool for added accountability and feedback from your trainer.
We are all unique with individual needs. From beginners to elite athletes, a virtual coach will meet you where you are. Maybe you despise running, or have a tender shoulder. Maybe you are traveling and limited to a hotel gym or none at all. A virtual fitness coach can take your personal needs into account, adapt to keep you on track.
6 Goal Setting
Many programs have you doing workouts and changing your eating plan but not addressing your specific goals! If you want to lose 10 pounds, run a faster mile, do a pull-up, a virtual fitness coach is working for you! As your coach, my goal is your goal and I will be rooting for you and helping you create a plan to achieve just that.
As an online fitness coach, I am EXCITED to hear from my clients and I truly celebrate your big and small wins over the course of your journey. Constant interaction is not only encouraged, but it can often be the link that keeps you working toward your goals. In addition to our one-on-one engagement, we have one AWESOME community. Our private Facebook group is a great place to interact and bring questions, celebrate wins, share recipes, ideas and more.
Once the motivation wears off (because it will), there ought to be other reasons to get up and do the hard work. Martino Fit offers weekly challenges and even a monetary incentive for completing your program and progressing toward your goals.
9 Expert guidance
Many programs don’t have access to a fitness professional, thus leaving you guessing when you have questions or concerns along the way. As a fitness professional (not an influencer) and an NASM certified personal trainer, I will guide you to the most effective workouts in changing your physique without injuring your body.
10 Push your comfort zone
An online fitness coach can see where you are now, and challenge you to reach the next level. With Martino Fit, we take an assessment of where you are now, have a conversation of where you want to be, and take the necessary steps to get you there. “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” You can expect to always be challenged regardless of your fitness level in our program to achieve your goals.
