Pros and Cons of Online Training Programs

In the past few years, a multitude of online training programs have appeared on the Internet. Highly qualified instructors create some of these programs, whiles others are clearly the work of newcomers to the fitness industry. Online training programs offer a variety of features. The prices for these online fitness programs vary according to the features that you choose, as well as the experience and expertise of the instructor.

An average price of $75 a month may include two weekly phone calls from your trainer, unlimited emails and four monthly programs. Most of the online fitness programs include goal setting and online food logs that analyze the nutritional content and calories of the foods you are eating. Considering that the average personal training session with a highly qualified instructor can cost $75 and up, a well-designed online training program can be a cost-effective investment. An online training program can also be time-efficient. You do not need to worry about you are your trainer missing sessions because of inclement weather or conflicting appointments. You can perform the workout at your convenience. Online sessions also eliminate some of the social chitchat that sometimes occurs between trainers and clients. While this may be pleasant at times, it can be distracting to the workout.

The other benefit of an online training program is the use of technology. Many of the trainers have access to highly sophisticated software that allows them to determine the right workouts and nutritional plans. Online training programs are also a good idea for anyone who feels uncomfortable showing their body in a public setting. However, there are a few drawbacks to being anonymous.

In order to do well at an online training program, you have to be committed to it. Unfortunately, your anonymity means that it can be easy to pay the trainer and ignore the program. Trainers that are dedicated to their work might make a few phone calls and emails to see where you are and how you are doing. However, there are some that may choose to take your money and view your lack of participation as paid time off.

Another factor that should be taken into serious consideration is whether or not you are able to perform the exercises in proper form. Obviously, your online trainer cannot watch you perform the exercises and check your technique. If you are new to exercising, this is a factor that should be considered.

Check out whether or not the site navigation is user-friendly. If you have to spend too much time trying to decipher counter-intuitive software, you may not be motivated to do you workout. In the final analysis, the benefits of an online training program are influenced by your own personality, and the likelihood that you would stay committed to the program.
