Are Online PT Sessions Right for You?

Are Online PT Sessions Right for You?

Attempted to accomodate my client’s preferences during Covid-19 quarantine, such as self isolation, I launched a new personal training service: Face Time PT/ video sessions.

Video sessions, to my own surprise, turned out to be as efficient if not better than the traditional way I have worked during the past 10 years - coaching clients face to face at the gym only.

Living like that in the short term is ok because the body can return to homeostasis and re store itself. The issue arise when we are overdoing those consistently leaving no energy for growth and repair as we constantly live in a survival mode.

Stanford psychologist, researcher, lecturer and New York Times best-selling author, Kelly McGonigal, believes that the connection strength between you and your future self is the key to success. Plain and simple.

According to studies, the closer you feel to the person you want to become and their achievements, the more likely you are to make real changes and behave in a way that move you towards your goals.
