Shayla McGrady, GM and personal trainer, at InForm Fitness, has been training people virtually long before the Covid-19 pandemic made it popular. And she was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to share her experience and expertise with us.
We discuss the three most challenging aspects of virtual training:
- Technology issues – is the fear of using technology for the not-so-tech-savvy warranted?
- Equipment issues – Is a workout with no equipment possible, particularly if you have orthopedic issues that limit mobility?
- Intensity- is it possible to workout hard enough with limited or no equipment?
We also cover the type of routines that can meet the challenges and with links to several videos. It is important to understand that without access to well-designed machines that solve many safety and efficiency issues, it becomes super important to work with a trainer that knows how to properly use conventional, free-weights and exercise bands. We discuss some simple and subtle changes to commonly used movements that are more protective of your joints.
Here’s a glimpse of Virtual Training w/ Shayla…
As always, your feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
