Online coaching is the “next big thing” in the training world. I’ve been doing it for over a year, using this program, and a few tricks of my own. (Don’t worry, this isn’t a link to my site, this is some screen shots of the program used):
And many other trainers are offering online coaching either in addition to, or instead of, live sessions.
But I’m (obviously) not exactly sure what Coaches Staley or Waterbury do, though I’m certain it’s top notch and no-doubt effective. Some trainers may just e-mail programs, some may follow up with phone calls, I’ve heard of others actually mailing clients 45-minute videotapes of the workout to do.
Ideally, live 1-on-1 training will probably be the most effective, since you’ll have immediate feedback, motivation, and technique instruction/correction. But with the right coach (and that absolutely includes Staley and Waterbury), online coaching can definitely produce the same results.

Not true. While that’s probably the biggest concern with online work, As I said above, using the Fitness Generator program, in addition to personalized technique comments, clients can get a mini-video of the movement to be done, so they can get a beter visual idea of what to do. See the above workout guy.
