As the internet becomes more and more a part of our daily lives, new technologies like video conferencing are adding interesting ways for individuals to seek out professional help with weight loss, fitness and health. Send A Trainer is now offering virtual one- on-one personal training with a live Certified Personal Trainer and nutritional counseling with a live Registered Dietitian.
Virtual one-on-one personal training: This program combines the best of one-on-one personal training with the efficiency of virtual technology. You simply set up your computer or phone camera to where you are in the frame, log onto the video conference and you and your trainer are able to engage in your own personal training session from the convenience of your own home. Since you have the same trainer each session they know all of your likes, dislikes, challenges, and goals and they are able to help you achieve them in a timely and cost effective manner. Since the trainer doesn’t need to drive to you, there is a cost savings over “in home” training. This program is perfect for someone who has worked with a trainer for a while, someone who travels or anyone on a budget.
“Having the option to train my clients virtually makes my job more efficient and cost effective. No more being stuck in traffic for an hour to get from client to client and I can actually train clients back-to-back. I have literally doubled the amount of people I can train each morning and no more turning clients down. This is the best thing I have done for my career and my clients!” -M.K.
“The shift over to virtual training has been very successful for me! I have to admit that I was initially skeptical about whether it would be as motivating as having an actual person show up at my house, but it has proven to just as effective. In fact, I really like the added benefit of never having to miss sessions when I travel. Consistent personal training has not only lead to a 20-pound weight loss, but increased strength, energy, and self-confidence. I am glad that I was able to keep an open mind about virtual training….it has proven to be a great experience!” -Dr. Shannon Troy

Coming in 2017! Virtual Group Classes
In 2017, we plan on offering a virtual group model with classes like yoga, boot camp, body sculpting; 8-12 clients will be able to work consistently with the same fitness coach or yoga instructor at the same time and days each week by live streaming the workout via 2-way video conferencing. This allows the trainer or instructor to see your form and make corrections even though you are in different locations around the world. Since you have the same instructor each session, the trainer will know your injuries, challenges, etc and be able to custom tailor the workout for you. Due to the fact that there are more people in the session we are able to significantly lower the cost per client. This truly makes this offering a great value!
