Top Online Coaching Businesses for 2021
In March 2020, the CDC declared that Covid-19 had created a global pandemic. As a result, businesses, cities, and countries closed down. Only those that had the ability to either pivot or use this new normal were able to survive. These top coaching companies saw unprecedented growth using digitalization, innovation, and a healthy dose of entrepreneurship.
With gyms in lockdown, you may be asking why bother to hire an online coach? Without the guidance of a fitness and nutrition professional, many people (including high-level executives) find themselves hitting the ceiling of what they can achieve. Without accountability, those most self-aware knew they would get lacklustre results, if any.
Using the internet as their platform to deliver their meal plans, programs, and feedback, each of these fitness pros promises to deliver results. But the “coaching” aspect does not remain in just the realm of fitness. Thousands of clients have all remarked that in making the changes to their physical transformation, they also experienced leadership growth, identified and mitigated their weaknesses, and grow as individuals.
