Increase Client Accountability
One of the hardest aspects of training clients online is holding them accountable to their workouts and motivating them from afar.

New Year’s resolutions don't work. They actually make things worse. How? If you feel the need to make one, it’s probably to create a big change in your life, and that's not easy. If you don’t prepare yourself, put a system in place to change your behavior, and have the support to sustain your commitment, you’re likely to fall short.
