Technology is Changing How The Fitness Industry Delivers.
In addition to wearables and apps, NOW we can access almost any type of GROUP exercise class from YOGA to HIIT at any venue with WiFi.
Welcome to the Virtual Fitness World!
Pros for Virtual Fitness
Pros are many:
-Any time access for clients;
-Wide variety of class formats,
-Class can be taken alone-may be good for beginners to increase their comfort level;
-Instructor is never late😉
Cons for Virtual Fitness
But there are some drawbacks too:
-Lack of personal interaction;
-WIFI glitches to interrupt the class flow;
-Content can be repetitive,
-Safety, injury, and liability issues are greater when a live instructor is not available
While some workouts look interesting or are labeled as low impact, for inexperienced exercisers can be not Safe to follow. There is a difference between what is fun to watch and what is fun to do.
Some studios offer duet/one on one virtual options-these eliminate the “cons”-but for glitches perhaps💪.
The bottom line is, though virtual group fitness is an excellent option for a home workout, especially under MCO, most would agree that it would never replace human connection, key instructional feedback high level of energy created by a live instructor.
