I've thought about this before. I don't think I would use a personal trainer because I don't really like working out at a gym but I might use a virtual one. I mostly need someone to help me plan my workouts and to keep me motivated. But, realistically I probably would never pay for one because I also like to do my own research and make up my own routines. It's nice to have someone to go to to ask questions though. I think that would be nice.

I didn't even know something like that existed! I don't think I'd use one at the moment, but maybe if I plateau for a while again, its something I would consider.

I've often thought that I would love to have a virtual running coach- for the same reasons of accountability and answering questions, planning workouts. But it's not something I could spend money on right now anyway.

I'm not sure. It would be great to have that person pushing me and helping me plan workouts, but at the same time I'm not sure if I would really use it.

I don't think I would use a virtual trainer, but I loved having one in real life! Especially since I didn't haveto pay for it (we worked out a deal- I sorted out his finances and he trained me).
