Personal Fitness Training Goes Online
A Utah company wants to "pump you up" with their new, online personal trainer, Virtual Trainer Pro. MediaRif's online software takes the complexity out of strength training and makes the whole process idiot-proof.
Strength training is on the rise, and not just for men. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) reports that 21.9% of women use strength training as a part of their fitness routines. This leaves men behind at a constant 17.5%. With such benefits as stronger bones to fight against osteoporosis, reductions in obesity, diabetes, arthritis, and depression, it is no wonder that women and men are going to the gym to pump iron.
The CDC also touts strength training as one of the main weapons that older people can use to stay healthy and active. In only a few short months, even seniors can build lean muscle mass, which improves strength, balance, and bone strength.
Totalhuman.com's new online software, Virtual Trainer Pro offers custom workouts that can be printed and taken to the gym. As Virtual Trainer Pro gets to know your body, it becomes increasingly effective at tailoring a strength training program to your physique.
"You can fire your personal trainer and become your own personal trainer," said Craig Nybo, President of Totalhuman.com. "With Virtual Trainer Pro, you will never look like an idiot at the gym." Along with custom workouts, Virtual Trainer Pro offers a multitude of education videos that can be watched online. These videos teach proper exercise techniques and high-intensity training philosophy.
"High-intensity strength training is superior," said Shane Provstgaard, M.S., C.R.T., co-creator of Virtual Trainer Pro. "High-intensity means you get explosive results in a fraction of the time. There is no reason to waste hours in the gym. With Virtual Trainer Pro, you are in and out; and, by the way, you get leaner and stronger more quickly."
"I use Virtual Trainer Pro every workout," said Nybo. "I am in the best shape of my life at 37. I can't imagine going without it."
Virtual Trainer Pro creators also boast of its built-in motivational tools. Customers are able to upload digital photos of themselves along with body measurements to create before and after reports from anywhere in time. A picture is worth a thousand words is their philosophy. If you can see results, why would you stop exercising?
