I’m no fortune teller, but the future of fitness is clear– online workouts are here to stay. What began as a way to maintain an exercise routine in lockdown has exploded into a virtual phenomenon with real-world results.
Six reasons why online fitness is here to stay
Not everyone works a traditional 9-5 job, but most gyms set their classes for those people. Online fitness classes span multiple time zones to offer the convenience of working out when it’s convenient for you.
Train with the best– even if you’re multiple time zones away
In 2020, the online gaming platform Roblox hosted a concert by Lil Nas X. It was watched 33 million times over the course of one weekend and reportedly sold nearly eight figures’ worth of virtual merch. Not everyone can be where Lil Nas X is, but the metaverse is opening up new possibilities that span the entertainment, education, and health fields.
The same is true in fitness. Through virtual fitness classes, you have access to the best trainers in the world– whether you live in Small Town, Texas or Manhattan, New York.
No childcare needed
If you have little ones at home, “me-time” is probably in scarce supply. Hiring a babysitter for an hour or two while you’re at the gym is expensive, and relying on the gym’s childcare facilities is a leap of trust some aren’t comfortable taking. Schedule your online fitness class during naptime to keep your kiddos comfy while maintaining your peace of mind.
While the cost of virtual fitness classes is often cheaper than their in-person counterparts, it’s not just the actual cost of the class that you’ll save. In a time of ever-rising fuel costs, cutting the commute to the gym can mean big savings over time.
Speaking of savings… How much time do you spend commuting to and from the gym, looking for parking, checking in, and chatting with other gym-goers? If you’re short on time, log in to an online fitness class for 50 minutes of exercise, then morph back into business/mom/relaxation mode as soon as the class is over.
Most of us don’t have a fully-equipped gym in our garage. We’ve got great news for you, though! You don’t need a ton of equipment to lose fat and tone your muscles. All you need is a space large enough for a yoga mat and a computer with an internet connection. Your trainer will help you make the most of the space and equipment you have to build strength and confidence.
