We all know what a “run of the mill” training session looks like. Training is not that difficult to figure out when you’re in the physical presence of your trainer. Or is it? It turns out modern technology offers as a solution that might be even better. And it’s called Remote Training.
What is Remote Training?
Remote training is the training process where coaches can train and guide their athletes without physical presence, independent of geographic location, exploiting the accomplishments of the cyber-era, as we enjoy them in our days.
Advantages of Remote Training
There are plenty of great advantages with this way of training. And they rapidly turn remote training from something awkward into a famous trend; for hobbyists and professional athletes alike. This method of training is, importantly enough, a great segue into a win-win situation, both for coaches and their trainees.
Not both types of training are dependent on geographic location.
Remote training alone brings the “luxury” of an – unlimited, unconstrained, sans geographical borders – marketplace. This is definitely the catalyst to changing the rules of the game. And, of course, converting the few options available in your neighborhood into a worldwide marketplace, is also important. For both athletes and coaches, that is.
A trainee can choose his or her coach of preference. And, on the other side of the coin, the coach has an unlimited source of prospective customers.
Importantly, remote training is time-independent. It conveniently lacks the complexity and usual “headache” associated with trainees dreadfully organizing their schedule, according to coach availability. Clearly, this enables trainees to execute scheduled workouts at their own pace, among social and professional responsibilities and family obligations. Another unique feature of this relationship between coaches and athletes is the fact that training can be accomplished at any place. Subsequently, be it outdoors or indoors, it can be the athlete’s favorite route, without the need for an – oftentimes redundant – running or cycling track.
Better value for money
Remote training is, in fact, by far the most affordable solution, bringing the most value for money. Especially for sports like running or cycling, where technique is not as crucial as it would be when practicing pole vault.
It should be noted that on average, a one to one session costs $60/hour. At the same time, Remote training costs an average of $150/month.
Admittedly, there are currently millions of runners, cyclists, and triathletes who have never met their mentors or coaches in person; except for the occasional Skype or Zoom video calls. Even professional athletes in modern era, may be preparing for the Olympics in 2021 (postponed until 2021, due to the CoVid-19 outbreak) without a single one-to-one training session with their coaches.
Perhaps you’re wondering how Remote training can be as effective as one-to-one coaching; and, most importantly, how a professional coach can track and monitor athletes’ progress. After hundreds of clients and thousands of hours in training sessions with our trainees, we can assure you that Remote training can be an extremely effective method. Indeed, one with astonishing results. In fact, you merely need to implement the right training software to your workflow. It will, without a doubt, be the connecting link between a coach and an athlete.
Focus on business
The right choice in coaching platforms, can enable a trainer with insightful data delivered in the form of analytical graphs, performance data, technique indexes and much more. These is useful information one cannot collect during a one-to-one session.
Trainers can analyze this great collection of data, at their leisure, in a cozy room next to a cup of coffee. This kind of setting provides a great opportunity for some quality analysis, away from distractions one can find within the confines of a training center. And that’s, in fact, how coaches can optimize their work environment for professional quality work and analysis. Big companies like IRONMAN or organizations as the British Cycling Association have already developed their version of coaching software to bring their training services to today’s needs.
Do it with ScienceTraining
ScienceTraining.io is an all-in-one coaching platform. It aims to assist coaches in admin jobs. And it includes streamlining their communication with athletes, handling payments, organizing their athletes with an appropriate training schedule, and more. However, it principally aims to guide them in designing a tailor made, science-based training program, in a truly Agile way.
And that’s by taking into consideration any unique requirements and goals the athletes have in mind, along with their capabilities. ScienceTraining implements novel algorithms, carefully developed through years of scientific and academic research. These algorithms provide coaches with a priceless toolbox to both enable them to train more athletes in less time and, therefore, to train their athletes in a more efficient, scientifically sound way that truly works.
The “Science” in Training
Science is, essentially, one of the most powerful words in the world. In short, it affects our lives in ways beyond imagination. And if coaches can mix science with their unique philosophy and training experience, the blend will, undoubtedly, be something that can bring athletes from their couch to a 5km milestone or even a podium, at the finish line of the Olympic Games. Furthermore, it should be noted there is no other way, there never was. Conversely, this claim remains valid, even with Remote Training.
Science in training: This is our clear vision and the reason why ScienceTraining.io exists.
