Why would I want an online personal trainer? What are the benefits?

1) Constant Communication: From the moment you sign up, your trainer will be communicating with you through phone, video chat, and/or email, as well as through the in app messaging. Your trainer will be constantly checking in on your progress, answering any questions you may have, and adjusting your program accordingly as you go.

2) Still personal: One of the biggest reasons training in person is successful is because of the trainer/client relationship you build. This doesn't have to change because you aren't seeing each other physically. Clients will be required to have one initial video call with your trainer
and can have weekly or monthly personal phone or video check-ins after. Your trainer will also be checking in through the app and email on your progress and will be available for any questions or help you may have along the way. The option for more communication is also available if needed. The trainer also creates a personalized program based on your personal goals and the equipment available to you at the gym you attend or at home.

3) Value: your workouts get scheduled week by week so you don't have to think about what your workout should be for the day. Instead of only seeing your trainer one or two sessions a week and having to plan the rest on your own, everything is laid out for you. Your trainer can see all of your completed workouts and leave feedback. They can also help you adjust your plan for any curves life may throw at you.

4) Accountability: Your trainer is checking in on all of your workouts for the week so you'll still have someone to hold you accountable and keep you on track if you start to slack off or have trouble with any part of the plan your trainer has created with you.

5) Portability: Scheduling a time that fits ideally into your schedule and your trainers can be tough sometimes. Now you can workout anytime or anywhere that in convenient for you! Take your training with you on vacation, your business trip, to the park, office, your home or gym!

6) It works! Don't take our word for it. See the results for yourself! Email Caitlin at online@ironplatestudios.com for more info!
