As a health-conscious family, we do try and make decisions about our lives that are going to be positive, both in terms of our meals and also our fitness. I have never particularly been one for self-motivating myself when it comes to physical activity, and despite joining the gym at work, I rarely go alone. All of the sport and fitness activities that I enjoy tend to be social with others, and without those interactions, it would be very difficult to stay motivated.
So it was with great interest that I discovered the Fatkiller Club website, and found that it was an online community that was geared up to help with that self-motivation and spirit of participation. Fatkiller Club offers participants a subscription based service, much like the cost of joining a gym, but enables you to complete challenges from the comfort of your own home. Perfect for gymophobes, and also parents with young families who are not in a position to make a trip to the gym in an evening.
Fatkiller Club markets itself as a club, and is an online fitness platform that provides users with exercise programmes, nutritional advice and fitness techniques. It also enables you to set small goals for yourself, and also to participate in the online community of members – giving that sense of interaction whilst exercising at home.
The website also has a fairly unique feature of being able to interact as a user with online ’coaches’, almost like having access to a personal trainer via your computer. The website is divided up into seasons of fitness programmes, and each season comprises a series of weeks, each of which guides you through a selection of exercises, tasks, food and dietary advice.
The unique selling point of Fatkiller Club is that the website offers users a sense of challenge to keep you motivated through the tough days when you don’t feel like exercising (and we all have those!)
