"And for Lisa Rose, a busy mom, convenience and motivation were key. She says she found both from her online trainer.
'She's sending me e-mails, reminding me, checking up on me. With a video, that doesn't happen because it's up to me to plug the video in.'"
The news segment went on to stress the importance of checking the qualifications of your online trainer and to use a site that offers video demonstrations. Fantasy Fit uses trainers with master's degrees and high quality digital video demos.
An article in the September 2000 issue of Self magazine and its anonymous testers say the following after training one month with Fantasy Fit -
" 'My trainer gave me excellent weight-training exercises to do for my chest and arms,' raves one tester. The other learned how to wear a heart rate monitor. 'It helped me work out smarter and gauge my progress,' she reports. Neither got any bad advice."
"…the routines were a hit - both women praised the easy-to-do cardio and lifting moves. Were you buff in a month? A resounding 'yes.' One tester says, 'My whole body got tighter pretty quickly.' And both loved the bargain price."
