No gym instructors, Enter Audibles!
Yes, I know, getting results from exercising is hard since we tend to give up easily especially if there is no one to guide us. Those gym instructors really are handy and they would keep you motivated all the time. That is their job and they are good at it. They have a fit body and they specialize in an exercise that is why they are there in the first place. It makes sure that clients go to the gym even more. The gym likes it when there are more clients and these cheap commercial gym equipment instructors are there for that.
What if I told you that you don’t ‘need those gym instructors anymore?
Audible now wants to serve as your personal coach — the audiobook service is launching audio fitness programs through an alliance with Aaptiv. Each program has a professional trainer guiding you through a progressively challenging set of workouts with a clear goal in mind, complete with a soundtrack to keep up the momentum. The first three courses are aimed squarely at beginners interested in outdoor running and stress-relieving meditation, but follow-ups in the weeks ahead will address more challenging issues, such as the boredom that sets in with an all-too-familiar gym routine.
The programs are currently free to Audible subscribers, although they won’t be free forever. You’ll have access to them until September 5th, 2019, at which point they’ll disappear from your library. It’s telling that Audible describes these as its “first” programs, though. While we wouldn’t count on more in the pipeline, it wouldn’t be shocking if sufficiently high demand prompted the release of more fitness guides in the future.
