The Ultimate Guide
to Virtual Personal Training

The go-to resource for people looking to exercise at home, while traveling, or from virtually anywhere and want to get sustainable results. 

Read it now to learn how to get the body and health you desire without wasting time or money making avoidable health and fitness mistakes.

The Ultimate Guide to Virtual Personal Training is loaded with science-backed education, resources, real client results, and step-by-step instruction for anyone looking to reshape their health and body AND have the luxury of doing it from anywhere in the world.

What is Virtual Personal Training?

Virtual Personal Training consists of 1-on-1, live workout sessions conducted virtually with a Certified Personal Trainer using science-backed exercise methodology, customized and coached to the individual.

The first thing you need to know about Virtual Training is that it’s an all-encompassing workout designed just for you.

Let’s explore that a bit more.

Most at-home or virtual workouts are “cookie-cutter” programs. They are made for the masses, aren’t tailored to you, don’t keep you accountable, and can lead to injury and lack of results. 

Virtual Personal Training with The Perfect Workout offers a solution to combat all of those common at-home workout problems. And it starts with two very important principles

  • Customized plans & coaching from a Certified Personal Trainer
  • Exercise using science-backed methodology


Virtual Sessions require a high level of creativity to provide you with a specific program that is based on your goals, limitations, and the equipment you have available. Personal Trainers work very hard behind the scenes to make your workouts as perfect and safe as possible for you.

Most people face their workouts with an existing injury, condition, pre- or post-surgery which can feel like a roadblock to exercising at all. But when done correctly, it’s possible to exercise safely and effectively with Virtual Personal Training. 

Another important piece in achieving your health and fitness goals virtually is to use science-backed exercise methodology. Slow-motion strength training is a perfect way of working out because its principles can be customized for anyone, anywhere. 

By using slow-motion strength training, the workout is innately safe. In addition to that, having a Certified Personal Trainer observing you, coaching you, and correcting you every step of the way increases your safety.

How Does Virtual Personal Training Work?

A Virtual Training workout is a live session with a Certified Personal Trainer. It's not a recording, it's not a general group class, and it's certainly not up to you to figure out how to do it on your own.

The value of a virtual 1-on-1 training session comes from three major things:

  • The value you get from working with a Certified Personal Trainer
  • The specialized method that can be extremely difficult to perform on your own
  • The customization and coaching you cannot get from any other online source of exercise.


Whether in person or via live video sessions,
working with a coach is the key to your success.

What are the Benefits of Virtual Personal Training?

Virtual Personal Training is the solution to health and fitness goals. With every session you get: 

  • Workouts that won’t compromise your safety or injure you
  • Effective exercises to help you achieve the results you want
  • Brief, yet efficient workouts that save you time
  • Expert coaching from a Certified Trainer
  • Tools to create sustainable, lifelong, healthy habits, and results

How Do Virtual Personal Trainers Make Virtual Training Different From Other At-Home Workouts?

There are a million at-home workouts available at your fingertips, but the best programs come with a Virtual Personal Trainer.

At-Home workouts have been around for a long time so you might wonder how Virtual Training is any different.

How can working out at home be nearly as challenging as the gym?
Can you get a good workout without equipment?
Can’t I just workout on my own at home?

Brucie Melvin of Menlo Park, CA struggled with these questions when trying to find the right workout for her. She was not convinced that working out at home could yield the same type of results that she could get at a gym.

She couldn’t see how exercises could be performed effectively without special equipment. She assumed that any workout she did in her living room would be a waste of time. 

What she didn’t know was that she was just one Virtual Training Session away from getting all of her questions answered.

When she was introduced to Virtual Personal Training, her perception of at-home workouts changed forever. She knew she’d found the ultimate solution to working out at home for good.

What made her Virtual Training experience different from other workouts she’d done at home?

  • She got live 1-on-1 coaching with a Virtual Personal Trainer. 
  • They used a special workout method called Slow-Motion Strength Training. 
  • She received a safe, customized full-body workout.

“It’s extremely effective! And I think it's even more important that a Trainer guides you through it. This is a super viable option. Just a real power workout.”– Brucie M.

The Value of a Virtual Personal Trainer

Virtual Training provides more than just a workout. 

Anyone can turn on YouTube and follow along with a pre-recorded workout. Or open up their garage and lift a few dumbbells.

But what happens when your knees start to hurt from all of those repetitive squats, or you don’t know which upper body exercises would best with your shoulder injury? Or what happens when you get to the most challenging part of the workout and you need encouragement and correction to keep you safely exercising?

That’s often when injuries happen or people quit their workouts too soon.

Most people need more than just a workout to get sustainable results and Virtual Personal Training provides that.

How so? You get the value of coaching and undivided attention of a Virtual Personal Trainer.

You can expect to get:

  • Personalized instruction
  • Guidance on how to do each exercise
  • Adaptations to the workout depending on your ability, equipment and desired intensity level
  • Accountability, expert coaching, and a friend throughout your fitness journey

To make sure you are getting the most out of your Virtual Trainer, below are the 8 things you should expect from your Virtual Training Sessions:

1. Virtual Workouts are Safe 

It’s easy to perform exercises incorrectly without someone watching your form or correcting bad habits. After all, you don’t know what you don’t know. You could be exercising with incorrect form every time you’re in the gym or workout out on your own – inadvertently causing injuries or delaying results.

Working out with a friend? Exercising with someone can be great because it increases your chances of sticking with it. But taking direction from someone who is not Certified is like having your friend “crack your back” instead of getting adjusted by a Chiropractor. Despite good intentions, neither of you know what you are doing and could be doing more harm than good.

You should always feel safe during a workout, and a Certified Personal Trainer should have extensive education on how to safely coach others through an effective workout.

At The Perfect Workout, certification goes beyond books and heavily involves real training with real people. Our trainers are prepared to pick up on visual and audible signals in your virtual workout to keep the workout safe and effective. We test our trainers’ knowledge and expertise with numerous written and practical exams. All Personal Trainers are AED/CPR certified and are required to complete continuing education as part of their employment with The Perfect Workout.

2. Use Your Time & Effort Wisely

Have you ever been through a personal training session at a big box gym and were told to warm up on the treadmill for 10 minutes and cool down for 10 more after the workout?

Well, that’s something you could easily do on your own.

A good Virtual Personal Trainer will help you use your time and effort wisely by putting you through efficient exercises, not just filling up your session time with any type of movement.

Efficient exercises are brief, intense, and performed until muscle success. By taking this approach, workouts only need to be 20 minutes long, and performed two times a week.

3. Workouts Must Be Effective


Too many of us know firsthand that it's very possible to workout – a lot – and see no results. 

One of the many valuable things about having a Virtual Personal Trainer is they will coach you through hand-picked exercises that have the potential to get you great results.

If you want to lose weight, there are certain compound exercises that will help you do that better than others. If you want to rehabilitate your knee, there are exercises that can be modified to help you avoid injury. 

Virtual exercises can be even trickier and Certified Personal Trainers know which exercises will be most effective for your needs.

Whether you get results is entirely up to you and the effort you put forth. But a Virtual Personal Trainer will be the one to guide you to success if you’re willing to give it your all.

4. A Workout Plan

Have you ever gone to the gym, warmed up on the treadmill, lifted a few weights, attempted an abdominal machine or two and then filled up your remaining hour on the elliptical?

And then saw ZERO results?

Or maybe you’ve followed along with a 30-day at-home workout challenge and ended up with a sore low back and achy knees.


That’s because not all workouts are effective, safe, or follow a plan designed for you.

Too many people waste their time in the gym because they don’t know what they are doing. They either do exercises that aren’t safe or effective because they see others doing it, or they try and figure it out themselves without knowing how or IF it will help them reach their goals.

Believe it or not, there is a method to exercising safely and effectively and sustaining progress over time to avoid plateaus. A Personal Trainer will analyze your ability and your performance to decide how to continually challenge you. 

This includes how to properly adjust your body to workout equipment, how to adapt the virtual workout without equipment, whether or not to increase or decrease range of motion on an exercise, to lower or raise the weight, etc.

The results are in the details, and a Virtual Personal Trainer knows what to look for!

5. They’ll Push You to Do Your Best.

Any challenging workout like slow-motion strength training is a physical and mental feat. This makes it incredibly easy to talk yourself out of giving your best effort when the exercise becomes tough and your muscles start to burn. 

A Virtual Personal Trainer is the coach in your corner pushing you to give your absolute best. They become the voice you need when your own starts to deceive you.

6. External Accountability

Chances are you don’t bail on your doctor when you need a checkup, but it's really easy to bail on your workouts when you’re doing them on your own.

Why is that?

Because when you have an appointment on your calendar and another human on the other end of the appointment counting on you to show up, you do it.

By keeping you accountable, a Virtual Trainer ultimately keeps you consistent and consistency breeds results.

7. Exercise Education

Unless you’re a doctor, a physical therapist, or you’ve been in the fitness industry before, chances are a Virtual Personal Trainer knows more about health and fitness than you do. Certified Personal Trainers stay up-to-date with how to apply our science-backed method to the latest research on exercise and the human body.

You wouldn’t try to clean your own teeth instead of going to the Dentist. So why would you try and improve your physical health on your own? 

You’ll learn new things about your body, your health, and your habits when you work with a Virtual Personal Trainer. And the more you know, the more opportunities you have to make improvements to reach your goals.

8. Customized Experience

A Virtual Personal trainer makes your workout personal. Everyone’s body, fitness level, equipment availability, and abilities are different.

A good Virtual Personal Trainer will not have the 45yr old man who wants to lose 30 lbs do the same exact thing as the 77yr old woman who wants to reverse osteoporosis. 

It's necessary to tailor any exercise approach to the individual’s goals. 

A Certified Personal Trainer dives deep into your goals and health history so they can best help you achieve your health and fitness vision.

At The Perfect Workout, we have an entire team of Virtual Personal Trainers ready to help you achieve your goals, and you can work with any of them!

Can I Get Results with a Virtual Personal Trainer?

You might be thinking, Virtual Training sounds great and all, but do you actually have proof it works?

In March 2020, thousands of people across the U.S. had to stop exercising in their normal in-person locations. As a means to stay on track with their fitness goals, many people shifted to working out virtually. 

Christine Gandel lives in Montana – nowhere near a private fitness studio – and was an early adopter of Virtual Slow-Motion Strength Training. She knew it was the best workout for her and now it's an option for her anytime, anyplace.

Within her first couple months of Virtual Training, Christine increased her strength on:

  • Bicep curls by 25%
  • Overhead tricep extension by 33%
  • Chest press by 19% 
  • Leg extension by 20% 
  • Lat pull down by 10% 

“I’ve definitely noticed that my muscles are more defined since restarting with virtual training. Walking up stairs is easier and I’m stronger since my weights have increased. I’m glad I can stick with the twice weekly sessions and that I have someone to direct my training to work around the health issues that come up from time to time.”- Christine G.

Registered Nurse, Lori Grosse from TX trained with her Personal Trainer virtually for 8 weeks. Lori increased her strength on every single exercise and her results even convinced her friend to join!

Frances Aparicio from Chicago, IL has been successful at losing weight, gaining strength, and aging with confidence with a simple solution… slow-motion strength training, and she did it virtually. 

In addition to losing 9 lbs during quarantine (which is a lot!), she’s also successfully maintained her strength on every exercise. 

Rich Turner, a long time client from Del Mar, CA has been able to make his lifelong passion of running possible again with slow-motion strength training. Rich has maintained strength on every exercise as a result of his at-home workouts with an Online Personal Trainer. 

“I believe that Virtual Training helped because the improvised weights challenged me to think more about form and made me stronger in multiple directions. Mind-muscle connection became quicker, easier to achieve.” – Lin Rowland

“I’m more flexible than before. The isometrics are moving me in ways that I wasn’t before, and I’m noticing those effects.” – Doug McGrath
