Golden Home Fitness Provides a Convenient Affordable Virtual Personal Training Platform for Superior Fitness

Golden Home Fitness offers convenient and affordable Virtual Personal Training.  What exactly is Virtual Personal Training and how does it work?  Golden Home Fitness Virtual Personal Training is the silver lining to all your Pandemic restrictions.  It is our own proprietary platform, developed prior to Covid-19.  We have successfully implemented our convenient and affordable Virtual Personal Training platform during the last several months. 

Here is How It Works:

  1.  SECURE:  Unlike Zoom, Golden Home Fitness (GHF) Virtual Personal Training (VPT) is our own private, fully encrypted and secure website.  You will have your own Virtual Training “room” accessible only by you and your trainer via login.
  1. INNOVATIVE:  GHF Virtual Personal Training is interactive.  It uses augmented reality technology.  Your trainer can “draw” on your screen to demonstrate proper form.  They can also send you instructional video clips.  We record and store your workouts in an encrypted server.  You can access any workout at any time.
  1.  SAFE:  You can do the workouts in the safety of your own home.  There is no need to interact with others or to risk exposure to Covid-19 or other illnesses.
  1. CONVENIENT:  You can do the workouts when and where you want.  There is no need to travel, there are no distractions and you can maximize your energy and focus.
  1. AFFORDABLE:  Golden Home Fitness Virtual Personal Training is extremely affordable.  While in-person Personal Training is $120/session, our Virtual Personal Training is only $45/session!  (if you would like to work out with one other person, our semi-private VPT rate is $25/session, and for a group of 3-6 the cost is just $15/session).

The Covid-19 Pandemic is full of sacrifices and restrictions.  The convenient and affordable Virtual Personal Training Golden Home Fitness offers is a life saver.  You can work out to maintain your health without risking your health, without breaking the bank and without breaking a leg (injury-free)!

Exercise at Work: Prevent Expensive Illness and Stay Healthy

It’s no secret that America has an overweight and obesity problem. Exercise at work could be the best way to get many people moving and losing weight.

Many people have been conditioned to think that going to the gym and getting on a diet is the only solution. However, this can be an inefficient and arduous process, and today we’ll share the scope of the problem, and why workplace personal training can help you prevent future pain, medical cost, and lost time.

Obesity in the US

35.3% of all adults aged 20-74 have obesity and are costing $117 billion a year in medical expenses as of 2015 (1). Obesity and overweight have accounted for 27% of the growth in inflation-adjusted health care spending in the United States from 1987 to 2001.

The Health Affairs article, “Public Health and Business, a Partnership the Makes Cents,” argues that all businesses and public health agencies share a common interest in having a healthy population.

In California alone, the issues of physical inactivity, obesity, and being overweight cost the combined public and private sectors an estimated $10.2 billion in medical care, $338 million in worker’s compensation, and $11.2 billion in lost productivity in the year 2000.

There, just a five percent improvement in physical activity and healthy weight over five years would have brought an estimated $6 billion in savings (2).

Exercise at Work: Lead the Way for Healthy Workers

2015 data shows that 62% of the American population, or 157 million people, are a part of the labor force and go to work daily (3).

Additionally, it may be precisely one’s health status that keeps people out of the workforce, as economist Alan Kruger reports that among men who are not in the workforce, 43 percent say their health is fair or poor, versus only 12 percent of employed men, and 16 percent of unemployed men (4).

This presents an incredible opportunity for businesses to be at the forefront of efforts to combat the culture of obesity and being overweight, beginning with their own employees and project teams, moving the nation from a mindset of correcting sickness to one that builds wellness (5).

Revolution Hotel Workplace Personal Training

Empowering businesses to lead the way in exercise at work & preventing and correcting the factors underlying obesity and being overweight is a win-win proposition for all parties involved.

Supermarket chain H-E-B estimates that their wellness programs will yield returns of as much as six times their investment by moving just 10% of its employees from high- and medium-risk to low-risk status.

Johnson and Johnson have estimated that their wellness programs have saved the company $250 million on healthcare costs in the past decade and, from 2002 to 2008, saw a return of $2.71 for every dollar spent (6).

Additionally, investing in wellness can yield dividends for increased retention and higher employee satisfaction.

At the Biltmore tourism enterprise, voluntary turnover dropped from 19% in 2005 to 9% in 2009 due to their wellness programs, and according to their director of benefits and compensation Vicki Banks, “Employees who participate in our wellness programs do not leave.”

And in exit interviews at Nelnet, the number one thing people said they would miss is the wellness programs (6).

single joint exercises

A Joint Venture: 6 Major Single Joint Exercises & Joints for At-Home Exercise

Understanding single joint exercises and how joints function is vital in understanding how the body moves.

This information is needed by personal trainers and everyday exercisers like you in order to truly understand what is happening during training.

With at-home exercise, this is doubly important, as all the fancy signs and diagrams you find at the gym are gone, so it helps to know what’s going on and why to do certain exercises or to hire someone who does!

Single Joint Exercises for At-Home Exercise

As always, check with your doctor if needed before trying a new exercise program.

While not a complete list of joints by any stretch, here are six single joint exercises and notable joints we’ll focus on in this article:

1. Hips

Your hip joint is a ball and socket joint controlling movement of your leg about your midsection.

Examples for at-home exercise include performing hinging at the hips with single-leg deadlifts.

Squats weighted with everyday objects like a gallon jug of water or a backpack of water bottles are also great.

2. Knees

Your knee joint is a hinge joint responsible for bending and straightening your legs.

Two exercises you can do at home involving your knees include reverse lunges and step-ups elevated onto a stair step.

3. Shoulders

Your shoulder joint is ball and socket joint controlling movement of your arms as a whole in all directions.

Exercises at home to get the shoulders moving include an overhead press with a bag of potatoes and reverse flies with large water bottles.

A great example of an at-home exercise involving all three of the above joints: hips, knees, and shoulders is an overhead squat, keeping your hands overhead while sitting into a squat, then standing back up.

4. Wrists

Your wrists are a gliding joint that is responsible for the movement of your hands throughout daily life and exercise.

An example of an at-home exercise involving your wrist is a bicep curl holding a gallon jug of water by the handle.

5. Fingers

Your fingers are hinge joints giving you dexterity, and of which your thumbs make you officially a primate!

Exercises at home that involve these joints include rice digs, running your hands through a bucket of excess rice, and suitcase carries, stabilizing a heavy object on one side while walking and keeping your grip tight.

6. Neck

Your neck is a pivot joint critical for the movement and function of your head. A heads-up exercise you can do at home is the static strengthening routine for the neck, pressing in one direction at a time against either your hand or a towel.
