The fitness industry has been quickly evolving to adapt to our new reality of social distancing and gyms being closed down or heavily regulated. It is as important as ever to ensure the safety of our customers while still providing them with the fitness and workout advice that they need.
Our health should be one of our top priorities right now, and online fitness classes may be the answer we’ve all been looking for.
Top Benefits of Virtual Classes and Online Training
- Stress relief
These have been trying times for many of us. Whether you are trying to juggle homeschooling and working from home or just need a mental break from uncertainty, making time for some physical exercise can be your outlet. Yoga can help you quiet your mind, while getting sweaty in one of our HIIT classes can help you release some of that extra tension.
- Stay connected
Craving a little social interaction? Virtual fitness classes are a great way to invest in yourself and feel connected to other people from the comfort and safety of your home. It’s also a great time to check in and connect with yourself. You might surprise yourself with how much better you’ll feel and what you can accomplish in your living room.
- Build accountability
Have you promised yourself that you’ll wake up early each morning to take a run only to find yourself hitting snooze again? By committing to an online class (maybe with friends!), you’ll feel a renewed strength to push yourself harder and a sense of accountability to show up.
- Get HAPPY!
Did you know that when you work out it increases endorphins, dopamine, adrenaline and endocannabinoid? All of those brain chemicals make you feel happy, confident and less stressed out. And couldn’t we all benefit from that right now? Your virtual yoga or strength training classes can be your new inspiration to disconnect from the world for a while and enjoy those well-deserved endorphins.
One of the best benefits of online courses is that you now take one that works with your schedule, anytime. You no longer have to rush from work in rush hour traffic to a class that starts in 15 minutes. Wake up before the kids or log in after dinner.
So are virtual fitness classes the answer to our health and wellness questions? We think so, and we encourage you to give it a try. Staying focused and connected and investing in yourself is as important as ever. Check out a virtual yoga, HIIT or strength training class today.
