I have yet to sign on to trainerforce.com but I have them at the top of my list if I choose to offer online training… actually it would be coaching. I agree with Susan I prefer to offer personal training “eyes on approach” but would be interested in offering online coaching in addition for client support. (ex. www.efitnesstracker.com , www.trainerforce.com , www.hyperstrike.com and www.fitsync.com)
There is an article “The Business of Online Training.by Biray Alsac, MS here on IDEA in the articles section but only offered to certain IDEA Member levels 🙁
If you want to offer online personal training….
YOU should create the program! I offer an online version of my studio coaching and cut the middle man out. These online services do charge you for using their system, but the client wants to work with you as Susan stated above.
I developed an online service where MOTIVATED clients who were looking for an online/virtual coaching service and structured with a nutritional meal plan, workout circuits, and schedule for them to follow. I’ve also built in the accountability that works best for them (texts, phone calls, emails, video check-ins). I created a sales page on Optimize Press and payment collection through Paypal. You can also use E-junkie.com for delivery of new client forms once they pay for service (PAR-Q, Questionnaires, etc).
You will get more results with clients this way and control your profit margin. But the field of online training is pretty saturated that’s why trainerforce will not get you many clients and again, the edge is working with YOU.
