The Value of Virtual Training

Mission Monday Episode 12

In the last two years, we’ve become a remote world.

Many people now use platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams to attend school and for work meetings.

But there are some things, though, that just don’t work in the remote world that we now live in. For example, have you used Zoom for a potluck or kids birthday party?

Is personal training another activity that just doesn’t work remotely?

Virtual Personal Training

We’ve noticed some skepticism about virtual personal training and this doubt is understandable.

Personal training is largely about high-quality human connection. Connection, such as seeing friends and family, is a much richer experience in person.

Also, if you are remote, you likely don’t have the high-quality equipment that The Perfect Workout or other gyms have.

If you are considering a virtual personal trainer, we have good news…IT WORKS!

While there is only a small amount of published research on virtual training, the existing research shows promising benefits.

In published studies, virtual trainers have helped clients achieve the following:

  • Better results
  • Greater workout satisfaction
  • Higher workout attendance
  • And a higher likelihood of sticking with the program

The results of virtual training with The Perfect Workout have also been stellar.

Our virtual clients have gained muscle and strength, lost fat, and reduced joint pain, among other benefits.

You can see more about these virtual personal training success stories on our website.

The main point is this: Virtual training DOES WORK!

As always, you can find the references for the studies we mentioned below.
