Virtual training is now available
Fitness classes are still a growing fitness trend and a popular choice for many alongside personal training. However, this has now all become available from your own home through virtual training, which is a popular choice for those who dread training in a gym in front of others. There are a vast number of training options available both free and paid, so it does not have to cost for you to get training. You can also fit this in with your busy lifestyles and train at any time of the day.
Similar to the previous points with the freely available access of Apps. A large amount of us now have smartphones, so many of these apps can be acquired easily, with many at zero cost. These include the likes of the popular Nike running app or Freeletics training. Zwift run and bike are also becoming a very popular choice for a man, as it brings a fun element for training within your home, which many do during the winter months.
There are now a vast amount of options available when choosing your clothing whilst training. This is completely changed from the days of spandex and neon colors, which were rather embarrassing back in the 80s. You can now acquire high-quality products for very little cost, due to the competitive nature of the industry. With these high-level products, it means it has never been a better time to be getting involved in fitness training.
Whether competitively training or not, many of us are looking to keep track of our training and progress. This can now be done through some top end smartphones but it is wearable technology that is the best for this. As with everything in the fitness industry, it is a competitive market, which means you can get a lot for your money. These watches can track virtually anything you need to know from max heart rate to overtraining. These products are a fantastic addition to get you improving yourself each time you train. Polar offers some of the best products on the market with their Vantage series proving popular.
