Gymchat 171 - Online Training III

Do you offer or use any online services as part of your training?

UPDATE 5/06/2012 : Derek's just launched a consulting service, helping various trainers to set up their own online offerings. If you'd like to take advantage of this invaluable assistance (it really does speed things up), get in touch with him over at Good stuff.

Quick reminder : this is an area which has certainly changed a lot over the past decade or so, and is now a very real option for a number of trainers and athletes alike. Online Training.

This week we're returning to our discussion on this very subject, taking a look at the what/why/how from both sides of the fence. If you're at all curious about the types of services available, how to find what you're looking for, or how to improve the training you're already involved in : join us for Online Training III. See you there.

If you're a strength coach or personal trainer, do you offer any online services as part of your training? If you're an athlete, have you ever used any; or would you like to find out a little more about them?

We first looked at this topic a little over a year ago, following a discussion on Setting Up a Strength Training Facility. If you're a personal trainer or strength coach, this is an ideal opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of offering online services.

Everything from custom program design to teleseminars and video training.

And if you're curious about online training from the other side of the fence (as the client), this is a great chance to find out a little more. Join Derek Peruo and I for Online Training III. Fantastic.

NB : if you're a Strength Coach or Personal Trainer currently offering online services, I'd love to add you to the 'Recommend Trainers' area of the forums. The first 5 people to contact me will be given free access (usually $99 per year) to this section.

Just send me a message privately, and we'll sort everything out.

Gymchat 164 - Online Training II.Derek Peruo.Quick reminder : in this week's Gymchat we'll be discussing the various ways to connect with your trainer (or client, depending on which side of the fence you sit) when you're not actually in the same physical location. Join us for Online Training II.
Looking At : Sep 30, 2012.

During the past week we've discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, the Forums and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.

Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Over to you. Leave a comment below, or send us a tweet :
