New no-excuse fitness class ‘Instructor Live’ makes exercise easy
Could interactive websites be the future of exercise for the unmotivated?
When it comes to exercise, many of us have a list of excuses to justify why we can’t do it including, “it’s too cold to run”, “I don’t get home from work in time for that class” and of course, “I can’t afford a gym membership”.
We could go on. It appears now however that these well-practiced excuses are to be rendered obsolete by Instructor Live. This interactive workout website means you don’t have to leave your house to exercise, or even get out of your pyjamas if you don’t want to.
This new digital personal training programme streams 40 live classes every month to your computer, tablet, smart phone or Internet enabled TV. The site has a wide range of classes to choose from, including ballet, yoga, pre and post-natal classes as well as high-intensity cardio classes such as Cellulite Dynamite Interval Training and Aerobics.
Every class is interactive which means that even though your instructor and fellow class-goers will not be able to see you, your instructor will be able to answer any questions you have while they lead the class. Simply type your question into the comments box for an answer.
Classes are run on a schedule, but even if you aren’t around at the time they stream you can still catch up in your own time as all classes are saved on the site – much like an on demand TV schedule.
To gain access to unlimited classes you will only pay £5.99 a month and there are no contracts in sight – making it a cheaper alternative to the gym. As you do not receive visual supervision throughout these classes it is recommended that those who take part know the basics of fitness to avoid injury.
There is no doubt that classes like these are great for those lacking in motivation. If you want to tackle your lack of motivation in fitness, or in any other area of your life, it may be worth seeking help from a life coach. To find out more, please see our Motivation or Health pages.
