Online gym gives hope to fitness enthusiasts

When COVID-19 lock­down traps peo­ple in their own homes and unable to per­form dai­ly tasks, experts wor­ry that peo­ple may devel­op bad eat­ing habits and stay away from reg­u­lar exer­cise.

With the clo­sure of the gyms, even ordi­nary gym fanat­ics have dif­fi­cul­ty main­tain­ing their fit­ness habits.

Accord­ing to the lock­down reg­u­la­tions,  gyms are closed, elim­i­nat­ing liveli­hoods of  fit­ness coach­es.

Coach­es must find an alter­na­tive way to make a liv­ing by plac­ing food on the table.

There­fore, fit­ness coach Oelof de Mey­er cre­at­ed the online fit­ness course, Hadada.org online plat­form.

“Just like an ordi­nary gym, it has dif­fer­ent coach­es and dif­fer­ent types of cours­es, but peo­ple can join in the com­fort of their homes,” said De Mey­er.

He said Hada­da teach­es all fit­ness cours­es live, so par­tic­i­pants can get the same inter­ac­tion and moti­va­tion from their instruc­tors as if doing it face to face.

“Like many instruc­tors, after the lock­down start­ed, I tried to teach online, but it was very dif­fi­cult. My friends told me they are expe­ri­enc­ing sim­i­lar prob­lems,” said De Mey­er.

As a fit­ness instruc­tor, said De Mey­er, I enjoy teach­ing and help­ing peo­ple instead of get­ting into admin­is­tra­tive dif­fi­cul­ties.

He said Hada­da makes things sim­ple for cus­tomers to browse the online timetable, just book and pay required course fees.

“When they need to take part in the course, cus­tomers log in to their account page, where they join the course through video con­fer­ence.

After upload­ing a week course, my stu­dents can eas­i­ly and secure­ly book, pay and take part in an online course,” explained De Mey­er.

Hada­da offers  real-time cours­es, and as a coach, added De Mey­er  “I can help pro­vide tech­ni­cal advice, and we chat before and after the class.”
