Online Training & the Age of COVID-19

The onslaught of COVID-19 has meant so many negative things for society, and for the lives of people affected directly and indirectly.

The need to keep people separate for their health and safety has also meant the closure of gyms and the inability of people to get to the place where they keep up their health.

I've switched my training clients to exclusively online training for the duration of this medical emergency. I'll extend it further for client for whom it makes the most sense to continue online, due to distance or circumstance.

Training remotely has its own challenges, but its own rewards, too.

The rewards are continued health and fitness in the comfort of your own home. No commute to the gym, nobody hogging the equipment you need to use, and no concerns about pet sitters, child care, and how to fit in the extra time to get to and from the session.

The challenges are the need for your own equipment in your own home. It's minimal equipment, of course, and I'm happy to say that for well under $100 you can equip yourself with everything you need to stay fit at home. You need reasonably good internet access and a phone, tablet, or phone with a good camera.

You also need a trainer for the best results. I say that as a trainer, but also as a trainee - I have my own coach, someone I've worked with for years so I can have his expert eye and objective viewpoint guide me to success. I've been leveraging my own experience teaching online classes and my 11+ years of experience as a trainer to get my clients results without their needing to get physically in the same gym as me.

If you're training at home, I urge you to at least try out an online coach and see how it works out. I offer full-service Skype-based training sessions where I program for you, coach you through the movements, and provide my expert eye to see what best suits your needs and goals. I also offer programming customized to you, for you to execute on your own time without the need for an appointment with me.

Email me at with any questions about programs and rates! I'm ready to help you get started today.
