It’s certainly not hard to find a personal trainer and get an exercise plan, but the hard part is staying committed and exercising consistently – which is when you truly see results. This is one of the main reasons why so many people are switching to exercising with the guidance of an Online Trainer; it’s easy to schedule and follow, affordable, informative, and can be completed right in your living room.

 Here are 5 things to love about Online Training.

1. Complete your Workouts Any Time of Day.
The ease-of-access really comes from receiving workouts, video directions, and guidance straight to your phone (app) – so workouts can be done at home or on the fly. Since the sessions aren’t done in person, you can even change your workout time at the last minute and not inconvenience anyone or get billed for a missed session. But don’t think you can just skip it, because your trainer will be watching for your check-ins online!

2.  Save a Lot of Money by Switching to an Online Trainer.
Personal trainers can range from $50-150 per hour, so if you’re seeing a local trainer every week, that can really dig into the vacation savings. Many Online Training programs tend to cost less per month than one or two hour-long in-person sessions.

3. Stay Consistent Each day of the Week – Receive Constant Accountability, Feedback, and Motivation. 
With most personal trainers, you are only able to gain guidance and motivation when you are with them at the gym, but Online Training allows trainers the ability to give their clients more time throughout the week, without overextending themselves.

4. No Commute or Gym Membership Fees.
Time spent travelling to and from the gym can add up, so just think of the extra time you will have! Since time is the most valuable asset you have, it’s worth considering the true value of this decision.

5. Real Time Feedback on Your Form.
Unlike a lot of generic Online Training out there today, some trainers will meet face-to-face with you by Skype or FaceTime; running through your exercises and giving real-time feedback. The exceptional form cues in the videos: the right time, the right place, the right reminder, will get and keep you out of pain and achieving quick progress in no time. With the right trainer, the results are essentially the same as if they were standing and delivering the cues next to you.

When choosing an Online Trainer, you want to make sure you research their credibility and certifications. With so many trainers out there, you don’t want to risk getting injured by choosing a trainer with no experience.
