Connecting With Clients Outside the Club Walls
Polar’s virtual training solutions keep your clients motivated, engaged, and achieving results while training remotely.
For over 40 years, Polar has been innovating sports technology and helping athletes achieve peak performance. Polar began with heart rate monitoring, but now offers multiple training solutions for elite athletes, coaches and fitness enthusiasts. Polar’s expertise in sports, physiology, and electronics is evident in their award-winning products, ranging from heart rate monitors and watches to comprehensive software solutions.
During challenging times, supporting client fitness, health, and wellness is vital. As a personal trainer, it’s increasingly more important to ensure that your clients are empowered to stay strong, motivated to continue training remotely, and have the tools needed to stay connected to you. As the innovator and leader in sports and fitness technology, Polar has several solutions to help personal trainers connect to clients beyond the club walls.
Your clients rely on your expertise and motivation to guide them through every workout. While the 1-on-1 connection formed between a trainer and client is hard to replicate virtually, it is certainly not impossible. Polar Beat is a free personal training app that turns your clients’ phone into a proxy personal trainer. Whether the goal is to burn calories or beat a distance record, you and your clients can set the session training target and Polar Beat will lead them to success with real-time voice guidance. When your client pairs a Polar heart rate sensor or sports watch to the Polar Beat app, they will get real-time, accurate heart rate data during the session, immediate feedback of the training benefits after the session, and unlock other premium features in the app.
At Body Control Gym, a facility specializing in both individual and group personal training, all training sessions are monitored by heart rate through the Polar Club training solution. However, client monitoring and training doesn’t end when they leave the facility. According to Davor Fetahovic, Body Control’s Founder and General Manager, “All of our clients use Polar Beat… at this point, it’s a Body Control commandment and something we preach about regularly. It’s to everyone’s benefit – ours and theirs! When we have a client train on their own or go for a run, we make sure they use Polar Beat and send us the post-workout report”.
To effectively train clients remotely, it’s important to provide detailed feedback to every client on every session. That means keeping multiple clients’ training sessions organized in one, centralized place is vital. The free Polar Flow for Coach platform does just that. Polar Flow for Coach is a robust dashboard that helps you monitor an unlimited number of clients remotely. The convenient and intuitive user experience allows you to navigate between clients’ personal training diaries, gives you access to single training sessions and provides results for detailed analysis. You can also stay connected to your clients within the platform by providing individual feedback through private comments. Additionally, you can ensure that every client continues to see results by adding specific, customized heart rate, time, speed, or distance-based training targets to each training session. The training target is then seamlessly synchronized to the client’s Polar watch for guidance during their session.
Staying connected to your clients has never been more important. If you’re looking for a solution to support your business, increase engagement, and drive results, then Polar is the answer. Together, let’s continue to deliver a great fitness experience to help every client stay strong.
