The odd part was that none of them left their homes and we live thousands of miles away from one another—in Washington, D. Tuesday, Wello launched Group Workouts, which involve up to five participants plus a trainer.
They cost as little as an hour versus solo sessions that start at for an hour.
The thought of seeing friends during workouts and not having to leave home motivated me to use Wello.
It was an instant hit, and she soon became one of a hundred or so pioneers in the world of webcam fitness—personalized online coaching in activities ranging from yoga and Pilates to kickboxing and circuit training.
And unlike using a stale workout DVD, Wello’s live trainers watched each move I made and offered feedback.
A pregnant friend in my class even got specific modifications for her condition.
The personal trainers devise pre-and postnatal programmes – including moves inspired by pilates, high intensity interval training (HIIT), weight training and traditional cardio – for women who don’t have the time, inclination or confidence to seek out a trainer in person.
They guide their clients via Skype sessions, whether that’s working through the actual exercise routines together or discussing how the programme is helping meet your body goals and suggesting what nutritional changes can help boost results. Never fear, the ladies are super-flexible to fit in sessions around feeding times and the like.
