Progress photos are one of the most overlooked, but important, parts of a fitness journey. While some people choose to not take progress photos, those who do are always impressed with the visual results they can see when comparing two photos side by side. Even if the scale isn’t showing any changes in weight or you still don’t have pecs that even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would be jealous of, that doesn’t mean you aren’t making progress. There is a common saying that goes, “It takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing, 8 weeks for your friends to notice, and 12 weeks for the world to notice.” While this is meant to be more motivational than it is a guarantee, you can see why it is important to keep this in mind when starting a new fitness program. Many people want to give up if they do not see immediate results. If you have been following your custom meal plans and online fitness program, you should be making progress even when you feel like you are not. Having a “before” photo to see where you’ve started can help you realize how far you’ve come.
Your progress photos can also help Kyle, your certified personal trainer, see if you are making the progress he expects within a certain amount of time. As a virtual personal trainer, Kyle can’t be with you in the gym every day, but he can analyze your progress photos and make adjustments to your personalized meal plan and online personal training program to help move in the right direction.
Our fitness app for iPhones and Androids is a cut above the rest. This is because you have access to a certified personal trainer who can make changes to your online exercise program and custom nutrition plan based on your results and his experience working with clients in-person, and his background in nutrition and exercise science. Even though Eternal Fitness uses an online fitness trainer and nutrition program, it is important to remember that you have the support and help of someone who has dedicated their lives to personal training in all mediums, both in-person and online.
