I think it’s useful for some people. In much the same way that people were hesitant about the use of workout tapes in the beginning, same with on-line training.
I see it as just another modality or medium to help get people moving. I thnk some clients will love it, others will wan a more personal touch. It all depends on how it is used. Right now online training can be so many different things…Skype sessions, Pre-recorded sessions, private chat groups, etc….
I do think we’ll see more of this continue to change our industry.
