The benefits of a personal trainer and the convenience of the Internet have come together in the latest fitness trend: online personal training. This concept emerged about ten years ago, but in the past five years, online training programs have amplified in popularity, said an expert yesterday at the American College of Sports Medicine's 15th-annual Health & Fitness Summit & Exposition.

NiCole Keith, Ph.D., FACSM, explained that online personal training is a convenient and effective option for exercisers.

"Offering personal training and group fitness classes online makes it easier for clients and fitness professionals to work together while also eliminating expenses for rental space, gym memberships and travel time," said Keith, who is an Associate Professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). "What's more, online personal training is an approachable option for morbidly obese individuals who are unable or unwilling to seek help outside of their home."
