Have you reached a point in your life where you feel like you need a BIG change? This can happen when you reach a certain age. You system starts to slow down, you find you’re not as fit and nimble as you once were, and you just can’t seem to shift that stubborn fat that used to melt away so easily and with seemingly little effort years ago.
If you’re wanting to get fit over 40, then an online Personal Training Coach can take all the hassle out of gym memberships, feeling self conscious about going out in public in tight gym gear, and trying to work out which exercises suit you best.
Just because you’ve reached a certain age, it certainly does not mean that you’re past it or that you may as well just let things slide. Instead, you have reached a point where it is more important than ever to stay in shape, keep your BMI down, be physically fit, and also be eating nutritionally dense foods to ensure that your life from here on out is lived in the most vibrant way possible.

Is an online Personal Trainer right for you?
As with everything in life, you will get out what you put in, it’s as simple as that! Ultimately, only YOU can change your life and do what needs to be done. But, an online training program can be motivating, along with the community of like-minded people ready to help you out.
The Importance of Accountability
Most people talk about their hopes, dreams, and health and fitness goals endlessly, but nine times out of ten never achieve any of them. Why is this? It’s not generally because they’re lazy or don’t care enough. It’s simply because it is human nature for us to live in the moment.
Yes, we can dream of big things for ourselves, but putting in the time and effort for future events that have yet to materialise requires foresight and discipline, and this is where most people come undone. Or, they may begin a project, weight loss, or fitness plan and be extremely excited about it. They may start off well by putting their all in, and then often give in at the first hurdle.
Again, this is not necessarily a sign of weakness, but more due to the fact that willpower is a finite resource that often wanes and runs dry. Most of us don’t have unlimited willpower, which is why having accountability to an outside source can help you to pick yourself up and get back up on the horse with fresh passion and determination.
Understanding your Strengths & Weaknesses
Understanding your strengths and weaknesses is absolutely key to your long term success, way after you have finished your initial program. This is more about changing your mindset, and the bad habits that have led you to this point so far. Once you have done that, you can begin to live your life in a more loving and respectful way towards yourself.
Your journey on the path to health and fitness will naturally highlight to you where you may fall short in certain areas. This is a good thing, because you can then focus on moving past your weaknesses into a whole new you.
Committing to a schedule
Changing long ingrained habits can take time, but with continual persistence you will get there. Committing yourself to a set schedule is one way you can do this very effectively. You can set all the goals in the world, but without a properly thought out schedule, you are way less likely to reach them.
It’s easy to have BIG goals, but only a set out program implemented over time will get you there, and this is what an online trainer can offer you.
Self sabotage is the single most biggest reason why people don’t follow through on their goals. We sabotage ourselves unconsciously for many reasons, mostly stemming from a lack of self confidence, a fear of change, and the unknown.
This happens to all of us at some point, and fear of the unknown is actually part of our survival mechanism. Our minds are hard-wired to try stop us going though with things that cause us fear, in case we potentially get harmed in some physical way. Of course, this doesn’t make sense in today’s world so much, but probably saved our lives at one point in time.
Learning how to not sabotage yourself, either consciously or unconsciously will improve very single area of your life. And, becoming the fittest, healthiest version of yourself possible will ensure you don’t fall into this trap.
Benefits of Reaching your Fitness Goals
All of the reasons outlined in this post show you exactly how an online trainer can be of benefit to you in helping you achieve your body, mind and fitness goals. These 3 things alone can be the catalyst for you to make changes in the other areas of your life that you may not be too happy with as well.
An amazing life awaits you when you’re completely happy with yourself. And, the higher self-esteem that comes with knowing that you not only feel and look better than ever, but also that you have actually achieved what you set out to do means will that everything else in your life will begin to fall into place more effortlessly than ever.
Rewiring Neural Pathways
Your biggest benefit from the program going forward, is going to be your complete change in habitual patterns. Completing the plan will have given you plenty of time to change the neural pathways in your brain into new and EFFECTIVE habits that serve you well for life.
The program is only successful if it teaches you to change old thinking patterns and ways of doing things. And, building new patterns and habits is an integral part of that. There’s no point in finishing the program and going instantly back into your old habits.
We encourage a lifestyle change for good, simply because this is the only way you will have a better chance of staying fit and healthy for a lifetime. And, that is exactly what we wish for you.
Your Diet Plan
You will be given a diet plan that suit your needs for the duration of your program. The menus have been approved by our registered dietitian, so you can rest assured that you are getting all the nutrition you need and beyond.
The food on your progam is 100% plant based because we believe that this is the best way to eat to achieve the highest health and fitness goals.
The plant based diet is also anti inflammatory with a myriad of health benefits that go way beyond fitness.
You will also find that many athletes and other people in the fitness industry are now endorsing the plant based diet for fitness and exercise purposes too.
