The history of the online boom has always been in parts and at every part, there has been a better need and mode of communication at its center. The online boom started in 1999 with AOL messenger, then Yahoo Messenger came in 2002, and it was all GTalk post 2005. Then Facebook’s messenger came in 2010 and within two years, we witnessed the rise of WhatsApp in 2012. It was a meteoric rise of a software that delivered more than its fair share of promises and the world has never been the same ever since.
What’s the point? Apparently, a big one, and it is related to how the much-anticipated world of fitness too is going online and we should be sure to find another communication tool somewhere in its center. Isn’t that a parallel worth enough to be drawn? This blog post is all about it.
Yes, it sure is. You would almost always find people rushing to enroll themselves in a gym and explaining their expectations to their would-be trainer, and believing everything that he says. They believe it because they are standing next to someone who has walked the talk to become the best at the game. Why won’t they believe him?
The role of a personal fitness trainer thus becomes crucial as he works with every single client of his and goes the extra mile with the ones who show the maximum intent. But there is an issue.
What if he is not in the gym for any reason or his clients can’t come to him? This is just where online fitness training comes into play. Using smartphone- or laptop-based online fitness software, he can connect with his clients just as easily and work with them in real-time. It works independently of his time zone and offers him a safe virtual platform wherein he can unify his entire client base to boost his revenues every day.
Seems like a deal? There’s more to it.
With the rise of online fitness software, there has also arisen the need for a comprehensive service provider that helps fitness professionals to focus on their core specialization and to deliver allied capabilities. This configuration of core and allied services is better known as Virtual Health Services.
As we mentioned above, there is a need for communicating. And that’s exactly where Online Communication and Chat Software come into play.
We are talking about an instant messenger that can directly connect you (as an online fitness trainer) with your clients. This smartphone-based smart tool is independent of your (or their) location, works from around the world, and helps you offer your consultation and instructions in real-time. You could also use it to enjoy a talk on a personal or group-based level or via broadcast.
Virtual Communication and Chat Software should offer several communication-centric and related capabilities. Its capability to offer point to point communication should always be secure and should be in an “Always On” state so that the messages are delivered in real-time.
Here’s what else it should be good at:
Full Communication Desk for Support (option to add images and document files in the chat)
Non-Session based Support Chat (you can chat anytime, even outside of your sessions timings with the client)
Provide Professional Support to Clients (real-time and medically-qualified resolutions)
Broadcast Messages to Entire Base (the ease of sending one common message to many clients, even if they are availing of different fitness modules from you)
Full Management & Communication History (one-click access to ‘Archive’ or ‘Delete’ chats)
Integration in the Virtual Fitness Software (for an ‘Always On’ state of sending and receiving messages)
Messages delivered through an encrypted channel with a notification on the recipient’s smartphone
