In researching competitors and fitness and nutrition software for my personal training business, I am noticing more online personal training solutions both in terms of competition and software offerings. So I am naturally curious, are personal trainers are doing more work with their clients online versus in person these days?
I, too, have been bewildered about the rise of online “personal” training which seems to me a contradiction in terms. I could see myself training somebody over a distance if I have been working with this person for a while, and when I am very familiar with strength and weaknesses.
I am with Christine when she says that it is not right for her. It is not right for me, either. I have seen too many people train themselves into pain and injury by repeatedly doing things incorrectly. Imbalances, when not properly addressed, can add up to major problems over time. I come with a background of personal injury which, as I know now, could have been prevented through proper movement. This certainly influences my opinion on this subject.
