Online Personal Fitness Training: Pros and Cons

Online training seems to be getting more popular all the time – and as a seasoned ‘real-life’ trainer and coach, I’d like to provide a little input as to what I think of it’s value. I’ll give you my opinion of a few of the pros – and the cons – of online personal fitness training.

If you’re the self – motivated type, but you want a truly individualized program based on your specific goals, your individual recovery ability, the amount of time you have and the equipment you have available, then online personal training is probably a good option for you. You won’t have someone there with you every step of the way, but you’ll typically have a totally customized plan and you’ll be able to get feedback on what’s working and what’s not. This is something you simply can’t get from a program you find in a book, in a magazine, or on the internet. Another plus is that online personal fitness training is significantly less costly than the ‘old-school’ in-person variety.

On the flip side, if you’re looking for a personal trainer to hold you accountable to being at a physical location (i.e. the gym) a certain number of times per week, online training probably isn’t for you. A training journal that’s sent in for review, say, once a week can help, but for pure accountability, a trainer waiting for you at the gym can’t be beat.

Online personal fitness training has pros and cons associated with it. A lot depends on who you are and the type of training you’ll do well with. If you are interested in going this route, picking a trainer who has a proven track record of results and has the credentials to back it up is really important.
