Xpert Spotlight: Health and Fitness
Reaching your personal fitness goals with live consultations and our e-learning blog
As winter is right around the corner, we’re getting close to that time of the year when we all strive to change, with resolutions and fitness decisions popping up everywhere. Whether it is to quit smoking, start saving money, or even take up a new hobby, we all set challenges for ourselves that will introduce change into our lives and help us improve.
However, most of the resolutions we make are based around personal well-being, including the way we look or feel. Many people wait for this specific time of the year to decide to start taking care of themselves, neglecting the problems throughout the year.
Did you know that the percentage of children and adolescents who are considered overweight or obese has tripled since 1970? This is a scary fact to comprehend.
Still, everything is not lost, since several chronic conditions including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, infertility, insomnia, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression, anxiety, stress, and many more CAN be avoided or put under control with a healthy lifestyle that also includes regular exercise.
Apart from suffering from various diseases, roughly 69% of the population is not satisfied with the way they look. This makes fitness the perfect choice for your list of New Year’s resolutions for 2018.
With the benefits of regular exercise being better health and improved physical appearance, you may even want to dive into a new lifestyle straight away and with our selection of Xperts available for live online consultations, you could do so much easier.
As we all know, e-learning is popular among many different subjects, and learning health and fitness is no different.
How can elearning help with health and fitness goals?
Now, you are probably wondering how could e-learning and engaging in live online classes resolve the health and fitness goals we set for ourselves. We could hire a personal trainer locally or just subscribe to a random fitness instructions YouTube channel, or download and follow a top ranked meal plan on Google?
Well, joining a live online class allows you to gain insights in a personalized way and from a reliable source, in contrast to pre-recorded, generalized content available on other platforms, or completely incoherent, separate tutorial videos found on Instagram or YouTube.
Zeqr provides you with real-time one-on-one classes, which allows interaction between the learner and the instructor, making it possible for any advice or guide provided by the Xpert to be tailor-made to fit your needs and goals precisely.
Majority of people who set getting in shape and focusing on their own health as their New Year’s resolution will start looking for coaches who are popular online and in social media, free diet plans and nutrition tips, and, by doing all of this, spend a lot of time and perhaps even money searching for a quick solution.
However, Zeqr aims to stop you from wasting your time and nerves going through a dozen different diets and other offers, and instead provide you with a unique opportunity to gain insights, tips and diet or exercise plans from some of the finest experts in the fitness and health industry.
