Free video sites offer thousands of fitness and work out possibilities. Which is great. But there are also some downsides to using free sites and we’ve tried to fix these with the Hyve.
Of course the biggest benefit of free sites is that you can work out for free.
So, our first objective was to make the Hyve freely accessible to everyone.
You don’t have to commit to giving up your credit card details to sign up or take up a free trial. With the Hyve you can sign up as a free member and you can watch two selected videos from every trainer on the site. As many times as you like.
As a free member, if life gets busy and you have to sideline your fitness activities for a while, you don’t have to cancel your Hyve membership. You can always just drop out and come back later on. No hassles.
But there are a few downsides to the free offerings out there.
** How do I keep track of everything?**
First of all you often have to remember where to find workouts that you have liked watching. Or coaches that you have enjoyed working out with.
The Hyve allows fitness coaches from all around the world to make their content available to you. So you can always find what you are looking for in one easy to access place.
Is my free online coach a true fitness expert?
Some fitness Youtubers, Facebookers and Instagrammers come from a professional fitness background. But, many don’t. And many people offering fitness advice on free social platforms seem more interested in grabbing your attention or getting you to subscribe to their feed than giving you a real workout.
The coaches on the Hyve are typically professional personal trainers or coaches. They usually have expert qualifications and years of experience under their belts. This means that play create workouts that are effective and safer for you to follow.
Are they offering real workouts?
Unfortunately there are many workouts online that are really designed to convince you to subscribe to someone’s YouTube channel or Instagram feed so they can make money from online advertising or product sales. So you have to spend a lot of time listening to someone talking about how wonderful they are rather than delivering the workout that you are looking for.
The videos on the Hyve always focus on real workouts, that are designed by experts to give you the best workout experience - and nothing but that.
