Three things matter to people looking for an exercise plan:
- A positive relationship with a trainer you trust so you’re having fun in a program you trust will work.
- Investment in yourself, knowing you’ve got some skin in the game to keep you motivated.
- Accountability in knowing that your trainer is going to be watching.
Let’s face it: following an online strength training plan can be a challenge.
Regardless if you use an expensive or free online fitness plan, it’s a challenge to keep going.
Since the pandemic caused the shutdown in 2019, people have told me they have not been able to stick with their workouts.
The biggest culprits in not sticking to a typical online plan: lack of motivation and lack of accountability.
Many people tell me the same thing:
“I just can’t get motivated with nothing to train for.”
Or “As soon as I start, the couch calls my name and I just sit down.”
You Stick With A Program If You Like It
Most online workout plans simple send you a new workout every so often.
So no one but you knows if you did the workout – or not.
Three things matter to people looking for an online exercise plan:
- A positive relationship with a trainer so you’re having fun in a program you trust will work.
- Knowing you’ve got some skin in the game to keep you motivated
- Knowing that your trainer is going to be watching.
Research clearly suggests that you are far more likely to complete your training if you trust your trainer or online workout plan, if you’ve paid some money as an investment in yourself, and if you know someone is going to ask when you skip a workout
Hundreds of Online Strength Training Plan Options
If you search for online strength training plans or online fitness plans, you get nearly 295 million hits.
Most online fitness plans require that you are self-motivated and knowledgeable about what works for overall fitness.
And many are expensive!
That’s because they’re targeted for everyone – not you.
Plus, if you’re working out in the living room, it’s just way too easy to see your couch, take a rest, and then, 30 minutes later, wake up from a nap!
You know by now whether you’re the kind of person who needs someone to keep them accountable.
How Do You Know What to Do?
Even if you’re back to the gym, it’s tough to know what to do.
How should I put together exercises for the maximum benefit to my body?
Maybe I should just roll down the aisle of machines?
One of the best ways to get the most out of a fitness-oriented online workout plan is through the six main movements: chest push/pull; shoulder push/pull; hip hinge; and squat.
We add core work to round out the workout.
A Custom Plan For You
The first thing we do is talk.
We chat by email, phone, or online chat to figure out what your goals and challenges are.
We talk about whether you’re using a gym, if you have exercise equipment at home, or if you’re simply doing bodyweight exercises.
Then we combine a mix of workouts, HIIT, cardio, yoga, or other work and add workouts to a weekly schedule that fits your goals, schedule, and past experience.
We can change and adapt the workouts as needed.
Each of the exercises has a detailed description as well as photos or videos to explain what to do.
Why Our Online Workout Plan?
I wear a lot of fitness training hats: yoga instructor, personal trainer, strength trainer, endurance sport (cycling, running, and nordic skiing) coach, and certified nutrition advisor.
I don’t put all of my proverbial eggs in one basket.
Fitness and good health come from a combination of cardio, strength training, yoga or mobility work, and recovery.
I use all the tools available to help you meet your fitness goals.
