Virtual training is an up-and-coming wellness trend in 2020. Many fitness companies are releasing digital gyms for home use. The smart-machines prompt you to enter information such as your height, weight, and fitness goals before suggesting guided workouts. You then receive programs with exercises based on your preferences, designed as “classes” led by a virtual personal trainer.

Is virtual training the best fitness approach for you? Take the quiz below to find out and then keep reading for more info, and check out these tips for fitness success.

Virtual Training is the New Trend

It’s 2020, and there’s no shortage of technology. You can do almost anything if you have a WiFi connection, and now, fitness training is no different. There are several different types of virtual training, but all provide the same perks.

With virtual training, you can work out from the privacy of your own home at any time of day. If you work late, have an unpredictable schedule, and hate facing the crowds at the gym, virtual training might be the perfect solution.

There are currently many virtual fitness products on the market. They include treadmills, bicycles, yoga classes, strength training routines, and even boxing classes, all led by virtual trainers.

Virtual Reality vs. Virtual Trainers

There are two GR8 new types of virtual workouts on the market. Training using a virtual reality (VR) headset and machines that come with virtual trainer technology built-in. With a VR headset, you wear the goggles while a feed guides you through various workouts.

Machines that feature virtual trainers provide you with the ability to choose your workout and give the feel that you’re in a live fitness class. You can program the trainers to know your name and customize workouts based on your fitness goals.

If You’d Rather Hit the Gym

Of course, if you’d rather stick with your gym routine, that’s GR8 too. Virtual training isn’t for everyone,  and some people prefer the social environment of the gym, in-person classes, and the accountability of a trainer or gym buddy. Some people swear by their trainers and how they help shape their bodies.

If hitting the gym is your go-to routine and you’re happy with it, we say stick with it. Fitness is a journey that’s unique to each person, and success comes down to finding which routine works best for you.
