Personal Training with Skype

One of my regular clients called me last week and said he was going to be unable to train for the next couple of weeks, but really wanted to get his training in, so he suggested we Skype each other during our appointment time. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about doing this, but it actually turned out great once we got going! I Skyped him at his normal appointment time. We had to adjust his camera a little so that I could get a full view of his body (for biomechanical corrections and cuing). I had my camera set up so that I could demonstrate the exercises for him if necessary. It was really just like being there in person, except for the occasional couple second time delay. He had a Total Gym, bands, and a stability ball. We got in 4 circuits with 12 total exercises, and by half way through, he had a good sweat going!

So it looks like there is another option for people who can't make it to the gym or clients who are traveling and need that push to get out of bed and workout in their hotel room. Glad I tried Skype personal training! Thanks Tom!


  1. Wow, very interesting. Personal training from Skype is a very good option. I find very difficult to maintain the workouts while traveling. I think this is the good option to keep up the workouts.

  2. This has been great! I definitely recommend this for those who travel a lot or are away from Chicago for a long period of time. Ive got a full gym set up, but you dont really need it all... Just a few simple props like the article states.

  3. Wow, actual interesting. Personal training from Skype is a actual acceptable option. I acquisition actual difficult to advance the workouts while traveling. I anticipate this is the acceptable advantage to accumulate up the workouts. Fitness Trainer Ratings
