A three-month membership is $59.99. While this is an excellent price for a personal trainer who works with you on a regular basis, it is a bit steep for an online consulting service, even with the additional benefits of the site. For someone who is too busy to go to a gym or visit a personal trainer and yet still wants the personal connection this could be an excellent solution. However, there are many free websites that offer similar options with for no fee. If a person is willing to follow a standard, and healthy diet, diet and routine one of the free sites might be just as effective and would certainly be more cost efficient.
