How Online Training Works!

Hey guys!

I get asked a lot how exactly we online train. I figured I would write about it to hopefully answer your questions!

Who is it for?

Anyone, with any goals. Anyone can train online. This is perfect if you need to get set up at the gym or home. This is perfect if you’re training for an event. Starting running. Needing accountability. Needing a push. Just super duper lost.

If you’re brand new to working out , it can be a little trickier but I make sure to emphasize proper form and simplicity.

What do you get?

Right now, I have 2 options. 1 fitness program or a 3/4 day split. Each program is written for you and your needs/goals. If you’re hoping for a quick trial or some new inspiration, 1 workout works perfect. If you’re ready to crush some serious goals, splits are nice for those wanting to exercise around 5 days a week. It gives your muscles a chance to recover properly so you don’t burn out.

Not sure on your goals? I can coach you through that also 🙂

Do I need to go to the gym to work online with you?

Nope! You can workout at home or not workout at all 😉 What I mean by that is you don’t need to have gym goals to get support. I have worked with a lot of runners and other athletes. I have also worked with some pretty abstract goals.

What if I need help with an exercise?

The software I use has both visual written aid. If you’re still uncertain, I’m always happy to hop on a video chat or video tutorial to go over form or any other questions you have 🙂

What does it look like?

I’ve attached a small leg workout I wrote for myself. The size of each workout is based on your time! Variations depend on your available equipment. That being said, I’m pretty creative when it comes to body weight workouts!

If you have any more questions please please send them my way! I’m more than happy to answer them for you ❤❤

Why You Should Use HIIT

If you’ve trained with me you know I love the sweet burn of interval training during sessions. Not only do they keep you moving and keep our workouts spicy, they have numerous scientific benefits for fat loss, heart health and muscle recovery.

Bursts of high intensity  increase caloric expenditure thus burning more calories. In addition to this, the total calories burned is greater in the exercise post oxygen consumption for HIIT than with continuous exercise.

Using a HIIT method can also boost your endurance which is seen through improved blood pressure and higher counts of mitochondria. Science also suggests an improvement in VO2 max and improved glycemic control.

HIIT can also increase flexibility and elasticity in your arteries and veins supporting improved heart health.

In addition to these internal benefits, interval training keeps things more interesting than continuous exercise (like an hour on the treadmill). It also cuts your workout in half and works to avoid plateauing.

Ive shared 4 of my favourite plyo exercises great for intervals. Next time you’re at the gym, try adding these between sets or reps to kick your workout up a notch.
