Do More Fitness on Fitblok

Guest Post

It seems everything in life is going digital, and it’s no secret that the fitness industry is too. At-home programs such as P90X and Insanity have been extremely successful and prove that you don’t have to have an expensive gym membership to get a great workout. They have done an incredible job at bringing fitness into peoples’ homes. But wouldn’t it be awesome if you were held accountable to doing that workout at a certain time, like you have to with your fitness instructor? Or could communicate with that P90X or Insanity trainer like you do with an in-person trainer? Fitblok is a new digital platform that mimics real-life fitness as closely as possible, making your fitness routine more engaging, convenient and successful.

How, you ask?

First of all, there are tons of  trainers to choose from on Fitblok who are constantly streaming the latest videos of their workouts. (And, there’s almost every kind of workout that you can imagine!) With constant new videos, the trainers will keep pushing you with new workouts so your body stays fit and your mind doesn’t get bored, just like a real-life trainer.  Think about it, if you workout with the same workout video(s), you’ll eventually get bored and your workouts will become less effective.

Additionally, the classes are streamed at a certain time, so you’re accountable for sticking to your class at that time – just like in real life (surprise)! The videos are later available “on demand”, but the schedule still helps keep people on track.

One of the biggest downsides of most digital platforms is that there is no two-way communication. But on Fitblok you can message your trainer to ask him/her questions or keep up with his/her future classes, helping keep you engaged and less frustrated! AND you can even digitally communicate with your friends by inviting them to join a class with you. (We’re sure you’ve invited a friend/significant other to take a class with you before, right?)

There are many other aspects of Fitblok that make it a convenient tool (like being able to do the workouts anywhere, and being very inexpensive) Fitblok’s main focus is to encourage people to do more fitness, and live a healthier lifestyle. With essentially no physical barriers holding you back what’s stopping you from training with elite trainers right from your own home?

Do you use a digital fitness tool – and what are the pros and cons? Would you use Fitblok?

We’d love to hear your feedback. Go to www.fitblok.com to try it out yourself and see what you think.

  1. This looks like a great tool to get you in shape. I think I need one asap.

  2. Yea! I could really use Fitblok. It would save time going to the gym.

  3. Anything that helps workouts at home would be a plus. I wouldn’t like going to a trainer in real life, but picking their brain from home? Yes.

  4. I think that sounds like a great service.

  5. I’m trying it out very soon!!! I think its’ super cool!

  6. Sounds like a wonderful service!

  7. Sounds like a great tool for women who can’t get to the gym and need a great way to workout!

  8. I’ll have to check this out!

  9. I love helpful tools like this. I’m really working on my fitness seriously now.

  10. I don’t currently use a tool like this.

  11. I love that there is two way communication and that you can go to a class at a scheduled time. It’s great for making it easier to work out from home.

  12. Do they have workouts with bosu’s too?! I have one and do not really know what to do with it.

  13. I don’t use anything but I really should.. maybe it would help keep me on track.

  14. I’m going to check it out. I used to have a gym membership but was having the fee taken out of my bank acct. every month and was rarely go to the gym. Just too hard to fit it in. I am walking on the treadmill in my garage, now. This sounds like it would be doable.

  15. I go to an actual gym every single day and take part in actual classes, however this sounds like a wonderful alternative! I dread having to lug all three kids to the gym playroom every day in 115 degree weather.
