A few things to consider before choosing an online health and fitness coach
If you’ve arrived at this post, chances are that you’re considering hiring an online health and fitness coach like me. Before doing so, make sure you consider the following.
1. Whether you are looking for an online personal trainer or online fitness coach.
Some personal trainers might offer both services rolled into one. With online personal training, you are more likely to do workouts in front of your screen, with your trainer watching and helping to motivate and encourage you, from in front of their screen. With online fitness coaching, you may not be doing your workouts online as such. Calls may be more focused on coaching you to develop habits that will help you with overall exercise adherence.

2. How much of a personalized option you are looking for
If someone is advertising a face-to-face personal training session, I would suspect that the service should be pretty personalized. However, this isn’t always the case with the online world.
Some online personal trainers have essentially taken their face-to-face services and recreated that in the online space.
However, there are also a lot of online services that call themselves “personal training” that are, in fact, online training apps. Many of these have very limited personalization included, so make sure you’re clear about what type of service you’re looking for at the outset.
3. Which lifestyle areas the online coaching covers
Some fitness coaches focus solely on your exercise plan and program. Others have the skills and qualifications to write nutrition plans, and/or offer online nutrition coaching. Holistic fitness coaches like me know that what’s going on in other areas of your life directly impacts your health and fitness results.
Whether you want to lose weight, get stronger, or achieve any health and fitness goal, I will address your healthy eating habits, exercise, stress levels, sleep, mindset, and relationships. This whole-life approach (which I call “The Holistic Health Highway”) helps me to identify the root causes of your challenges. In turn, this helps us establish the small action points that are going to have the biggest impact on your overall results.
4. Online fitness coaching packages and logistics
Before you get started with fitness coaching online (or any online personal training packages), consider what sort of investment you are willing to work with. How many times are you willing to work out per week, and how often do you want you trainer to check in with you, or train with you? What sort of budget do you have to work with?
All trainers offer different online fitness training packages with the goal of helping people to become fitter and healthier. Ideally they will be able to offer you something that is completely tailored to meet your needs. Personalized online fitness training programs consider your medical and injury status and history, preferences, goals, and lifestyle.
[As an online health and fitness coach with 20+ years experience, my offerings are all completely personalized and start at US $247 per month].
My virtual coffee shout is a great place to start so that you can get answers to whatever is on your mind about your health and fitness, without making a bigger commitment just yet.
[And there is absolutely no obligation beyond that; I just want to make personalized advice available to more people].
What are the benefits of hiring an online fitness coach, rather than a face-to-face trainer?
Hiring a fitness coach online can offer benefits that distinguish the service from traditional face-to-face training:
- Less time commitment required for 1:1 sessions, since you don’t need to travel to get to them
- Fitness coaches online may be more prepared to offer added accountability features that allow for more frequent, yet still personalized, points of contact. For example, messenger or Whatsapp chats, and contact via social media platforms or email
- There is a bigger pool of coaches to choose from when you step outside your immediate geographical area. This means that you can be more specific about choosing the best online fitness coach for you
- Better overall convenience and efficiency. An online health and fitness coach is a great option for busy people who want to make the most effective and efficient use of their time. By eliminating travel time and overcoming location restrictions you can connect with your online trainer wherever it suits you, and have more time available for other things

Take effective action towards your health and fitness goals
At the same time, I also know that some of you need a little extra nudge to help you get going or to take the next step. For example, there may be one burning question that’s holding you back. If you’ve got an answer that cut through the hype and made sense to you be up up and away so much quicker on the path that’s right for you.
But if you only read my free online holistic health content, you won’t get the changes you want when it comes to your health and fitness. You have to take effective action. I know that sometimes taking effective action requires an extra bit of commitment. This is why I’m now offering a limited number of 15 minute virtual coffees with me where you can “Ask Elly Anything”.
Yep, for around the price of two cups of coffee, you can ask me anything you want about your health and fitness. My professional experience and expert response as a holisitc health and fitness coach may just give you the momentum you need to actually push on and make progress.
