Virtual sessions are conducted via live video sessions between client and trainer. Messenger, Whatsapp, Zoom, Skype ore similar can be used to conduct a virtual session. I use google meet ore skype for my virtual clients. Often trainers that offer virtual training will have their prefered platform that they will help you set up if you don’t have already. You agree on a time like you would for your face to face sessions and you will either get an invite to a meeting ore your trainer will call on the chosen platform to start the session.
Many of my clients find that it’s almost as good as a face to face session. As a client, you won’t get any hands-on corrections. but most find it works well without even if some have a preference to it. It can vary from person to person and their goals, previous experience, type of training, how they take in information, new to training, body awareness and coordination as so on. A good trainer will adjust the exercises so you will be able to do them correctly and won’t have to worry about doing them wrong. They will still be there with you and are able to see your form whilst doing the exercises. They can give you corrections and feedback between sets.
Anyone can use virtual personal training as long as you have access to the internet, a phone, tablet or computer with a camera. And are willing to use one of the platforms used for video calls/meetings.
Absolutely. You can use virtual sessions as a complement to your regular face to face sessions when you are away with work for a longer period. Can be used the opposite way as well. The majority of the sessions is done virtually but once in a while, you meet up for a face to face session with your personal trainer to work on specific details and touch base. It works really well and it can be done remote. Some would use it on holidays but most people like the break.
