Online Personal Training

I have been doing a quite a bit of research on this topic and have found mixed reviews from everyone.  I personally think it can work but the individual has to be committed to reaching their goals.  I have found that online trainers become more than a personal trainer but more of a life coach as well since they are more easily accessible to the client via email, Skype etc.

Who I think this program works for are:

  • Those on a budget who want to see results and are driven and have some experience in and around a gym.
  • Those who are moms and dads who have kids and need to be flexible with the time of their workouts
  • Those who travel a lot and are in and out of hotels and need a variety of options while out on the road
  • Athletes who are motivated to succeed spend a lot of money on lessons but need more dedication to the physical side of the sport
  • Someone who may need daily motivational support from a someone who is going to help them be accountable
  • Those who are willing to be honest when reporting their workout results via online and submitting honest feedback
  • Who this Program does not work for:
  • Someone who is looking for a quick fix to solve their physical needs
  • Someone who is not 100% committed to obtaining their goals
  • Someone who wants only free advice
  • A complete beginner to exercise and has never set foot in a gym (you will need to gain some guided experience from someone to help you learn how to do the exercises correctly)  (A blended option would work)
  • Special Populations (youth, elderly, diabetic etc) as you may need to be monitored more closely while performing your workouts

I would love to hear any feedback/experiences anyone may have had with online training programs.  I look forward to hearing back from you!
