Happy New Year! I’m getting married this year, so getting in shape is more than just a New Year’s Resolution. I started working out with a personal trainer about a month and a half ago, and it has been awesome. I nearly threw up during the first few sessions, but I’m getting stronger and my trainer has helped me overcome a few nagging sports injuries. It’s expensive, but it’s well worth the investment. You can’t replace the in-gym experience with a personal trainer, but Wello is a company that is trying to come close through the power of the Internet. They’re based in Palo Alto, CA, and they offer personal trainers over “live, 2-way video.”
As my trainer says, “a good trainer can train someone in four foot by four foot space.” Having access to a gym with all kinds of equipment is nice, but it’s not essential. Wello allows you to get an amazing workout in whatever space you have available whether it’s a hotel room or your bedroom. And you still get most of the benefits of having an in-person trainer–form checks, getting pushed to your limit, and a program tailored to your needs. There’s obviously something that will be lost through the video connection, but I’m sure that it’s more about your attitude than anything else. You can get a feel for how Wello works here. The prices are pretty reasonable, and they give you 25% off your first workout, so it’s definitely worth a try. If you like what Wello is all about, check out their Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Marketing Manager. Ideally, they want someone with a couple years of experience, but don’t be a fraid to reach out to them about other potential opportunities at email@example.com.
