Your Goals, Your Way: Train How, Where, & When You want
Training progress stalled?
Then you have one of four problems:
- You don’t know how to work out (even if you think you do);
- You need a program upgrade;
- Your nutrition and recovery suck; or,
- Some combination of the previous three.
In other words, if you’ve nailed the how but suck at the what, and if you live in Timbuktu and still want to train with us, or if being cost-effective but still optimized in your training is most important to you, online training may just be the solution you’re looking for.
Here’s why Dynamis Online is the logical option:
Benefits of Online Coaching vs. In-Person Coaching
1. It’s the most efficient way to get the best program.
When you purchase in-person training with most trainers, most of the cost is the trainer’s time spent with you.
It’s expensive being a trainer, and in-person training has always, and will always, consist of trading money for time. This means that if you’re spending three hours a week with your trainer, and paying three hours a week for his or her time, there’s not much left to devote to program design.
At best, most trainers spend an hour on a client’s program, tops. (I’ve been known to spend up to 30 hours, because I apparently have something against myself, but that’s my problem). Online training takes that time-money trade and puts the emphasis where you need it to be if you’re already an experienced lifter: on the program.
2. It lets your coach dig deeper into the barriers holding you back.
While this isn’t exclusively true of online coaching, it’s probably truer of online coaching than in-person coaching.
Behaviour coaching is best left for time spent outside workout sessions. Lengthy discussions about nutrition information and behaviour patterns seriously detract from how much you can get done in a workout when they’re squeezed into rest times. Conversely, the fatigue from a workout can make you forget what you just talked about.
Trainers should be talking to their clients about those things in separate sessions devoted to just that. Most don’t. Online coaching makes time for this, as your workout sessions are taken care of remotely and on your own time.
3. It removes the problems of scheduling, location, and cost.
First, the in-person fitness business has one huge limitation: It puts business before fitness, out of necessity.
Sessions are typically limited to 30, 45, or 60 minutes, as the trainer makes a living by taking as many appointments as possible and/or developing alternate revenue streams. Thus, though you may be better-served by a longer workout, it’s not always possible to fit the whole thing into the allotted time-frame, and results may be left on the table.
Second, it’s a no-brainer that scheduling conflicts are a problem.
Third, though you may be willing to travel as far as necessary to train with the right person, that’s not always possible.
And fourth, online training can literally be 10 TIMES cheaper than training in person.
