For many people, personal training seems like a luxury, with a single session costing up to $100. However, online personal training can provide many benefits of an in-person trainer at a fraction of the cost.

Sarah from The Flex Fit Coach shares her insights on why online personal training can be a good way to reach your goals:

It’s affordable. Online personal training can range anywhere from $30-$200 per month, regardless of how many times you workout, making it a much more comfortable option.

Scheduling is easy. No fees for late cancellations or missed appointments. With online training, you workout when the time fits into your schedule.

Individual attention. The trainer prescribes the sets, reps, and weights to use for each exercise, and a video demonstration and written description of each exercise. In addition, the client always has the opportunity to film himself or herself completing an exercise and submit the video to the trainer for feedback.

Accountability and support. Online personal training allows the client to connect with the trainer as often as needed. With email support, weekly check-ins, Skype meetings, and private client-only Facebook groups, support and accountability are available 24/7. In addition, you can both work via app to track your workouts and progress over time.

Convenience. With online training, clients can workout anywhere, you don’t even need to belong to a gym. With minimal equipment, a client can train right in the privacy of their own home.

Easy to use. It starts with a consultation/assessment with the trainer, to discuss fitness goals, exercise and health history and lifestyle choices. Next, the trainer sends the first custom-made workout via website or app. Everything is easy to use and in one place. The client records when the workout is complete. The app makes it easy to communicate and track progress over time.

Results. Online training can provide stronger accountability and better results than working out on your own.

Online personal training allows clients to have the freedom to reach their fitness goals safely and efficiently, at a fraction of the cost of in-person training.
