Why is telephone coaching effective?

Telephone coaching can be an effective form of training because it gives you the opportunity to discuss your goal-specific programs and your progress with your coach.  Phone sessions can be more convenient because they allow greater flexibility to schedule sessions with your trainer around your needs and availability. This is different from live training sessions because live trainers do not usually have the flexibility to move training appointments around due to other client commitments. Phone training still gives you the personal one-on-one time that you get with a live trainer, just in different type of environment.  While phone coaching is a great form of training, in order to be successful you must be self-disciplined and have a clear understanding of how to properly execute the exercises in the programs that were designed with your goals in mind.
