A Guide to Personal Training During COVID-19

Are you training for an upcoming race? Or better yet, do you want to achieve a specific weight? At First Class Personal Training, your overall health is also our utmost concern. With the ongoing COVID-19 health situation, gyms are not yet fully open to accommodate clients to avoid the spread of the coronavirus. That’s why we come up with different ways just to deliver and achieve your health goals in life. We develop a personal training regime that is safe and convenient for you even if you do it at home.

Virtual Trainings

Technology is one of the best things that personal trainers can use to start or continue with each client’s workout program. Through self-made workout videos, clients can follow and keep up with training every day, at the comforts of their homes. First Class Personal Training offers a newly designed virtual training program that is challenging and goal-oriented. Trainers monitor the progress of clients online via Zoom or Skype.

Sessions are up to 60 minutes per session and practically the same results as it would have been face to face. It all boils down to a client’s willingness to commit to a fitness goal with personal trainers who are very open and accommodating.

Virtual Trainings

Customized Home Workouts

Each individual is unique thus no single training works out for everybody. That’s the great thing about having a personal trainer at First Class Personal Training – there are many opportunities to stay fit despite the social distance due to the pandemic. Thus, every fitness program is tailored perfectly to suit your needs and body composition. Our personal trainers only need your cooperation to make your fitness dreams come to life!

Our personal trainers offer a virtual consultation to know each of your health needs and fitness goals in life. Thereafter, you need to commit to a program after the virtual assessment. We then create a fully personalized home workout just for you to get you started on your fitness journey.

The good thing about home workouts is that there is no risk in contracting any virus as compared to gyms and fitness facilities. At home, you will be using your gears and mats depending on the type of workout you will be engaging in. Our personal trainers will be monitoring the progress and schedule created for you. Though tempting to slack off because you will be at the comforts of your own home, you reap what you sow. So whatever you invest in to reach your goal depends on how you will execute it. Our personal trainers will keep on reminding you and pushing you to be fit and healthy through online platforms as well.

Health and Wellness Support

One of the most important things to watch out for in this time of the pandemic is health and wellness. We need to be careful about nutrition and dietary choices since most are spending a lot of their time at home. It can be very tempting to go for what is instantly available in the fridge or cupboard but now is the time to focus on what is healthy and makes you strong. With our personal trainers constantly monitoring and giving you support, rest assured that aside from physical exercise, good nutrition is established with any program.

To support your personalized training at home, having a fruitful trip to the grocery is essential to find ingredients for home cooked, healthy meals. Eggs, squash or lentils are usually the top choices which are packed with nutrients. Minimally processed foods are perfect for any type of training. Lean protein such as fish, eggs and yogurt is important to build muscles and feel full. For a tasty yet healthy addition to any meal, peanut butter is a great source of protein.

Greens and fiber-filled food are also important to give you energy and maintain your healthy digestive system. In every meal pre or post workout, healthy sources of fat such as walnuts, seeds and olive oil must be incorporated for a well-balanced nutrition.

Processed or boxed foods must also be limited because most have too much sugar in it. Do take note that fruits have fructose which is a natural form of sugar, does not pose a health risk. To have enough amounts of sugar in the body, take in fresh fruits with every meal or make smoothies out of fruits for a refreshing twist.

For hydration, water is the best liquid to drink as compared to other health beverages. It is readily available at home and contains no sugar or additives. Drinking two cups of water before any workout is recommended and sipping small amounts of water all throughout and after workout. With the COVID-19 pandemic in tow, it is best to be fully hydrated to keep the body at the right temperature especially in engaging in vigorous workout programs.

In addition, vitamins and minerals are needed to supplement the body’s nutrition and to boost the immune system. Health is wealth thus making sure your body is in tip-top condition before starting with any personal training program at home.

First Class Personal Training can help you stay fit and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. With regular physical exercise, balanced nutrition and rest, you will be fit in no time.
