Workout Videos are the New Personal Trainer

Workout videos have been assisting people in the fitness journey for just over 30 years. The trend of working out at home became popularized in the early 80s with the release of Jane Fonda’s first workout video entitled Workout on April 24th, 1982. Following the success of Jane Fonda’s video and as the exercise trend became mainstream, more and more celebrities and trainers began releasing videos for the public to consume, including celebrities like Richard Simmons and Judi Sheppard Misset.

To accurately list all workout videos that have been produced from 1982 until now would be next to impossible. Whatever the individual reason, people continue to indulge in the exercise trend.  Workout videos typically feature a fitness trainer teaching their viewers how to do certain exercises. These videos are often geared toward specific exercises or results, for example, the perfect abs or the perfect biceps and shoulders. Workouts often feature an in-shape trainer cheering on their viewers through stretching, cardio and muscle workouts.

As the world has advanced with technology over the years, it only makes sense that the workout regimes and routines advance as well. It is now possible to become members of virtual gyms. People can sign up for personal trainers and watch workout videos right from the comfort of their own home. The internet has expanded its reach to the world of fitness over the years – leaving it capable of shielding people from the public fear of working out.

Going to the gym can be a scary situation for most and it can often derail people from their exercise goals. In many cases, the simple act of working out in public can scare a person away from ever getting in shape. With the wealth of workout videos available, it is entirely possible to lose the debilitating fear.  One of the most important aspects of working out that most people forget is that it is 20% exercise and 80% diet. Most workout videos will come with detailed instructions and suggestions for a healthy diet, including recommended supplements to aid in the repair of muscle tissue after intense workouts.

For many, the whole experience of working out is foreign. It is hard to know what to do, how to do it and what to do it with. Workout videos provide instruction on all of these things: what equipment to use and how to use it, what to do with no equipment and how to do it and how often. With the overwhelming number of online tutorials and training videos available, there are no more excuses for staying unfit.

With the use of online personal trainers, anyone can get the body they want. The beauty of exercising at home using workout videos is that the exercise experience can be enjoyed in the non-judgemental comfort of your own living room. Workout videos are personal trainers. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s fun. It’s time that the world quits making excuses for avoiding exercise. Health is only a few clicks away.
