Is Online Personal Training Effective?
A Brown University Medical study shows hope for the effectiveness of online personal training. A study published in the Journal of American Medical Association concluded that participants in an online, structured behavioral treatment program with weekly contact and individualized feedback had better weight loss results than people who merely viewed educational websites. The features of the behavior therapy group included 24 weekly behavioral lessons via e-mail, weekly online submissions of diaries with individualized feedback and an online bulletin board. Both groups started with a face-to-face session and were given access to a website with organized links to Internet weight loss resources. The group with better results lost an average of about 9 pounds, compared to the other group, which lost about 3.5 pounds. The Internet and e-mail appear to be viable methods of delivering a structured behavioral weight loss program, according to the study of ninety-one people from 18 to 60 years-old. Sixty-five people completed the study. Deborah F. Tate was the lead researcher of the article title: Using Internet technology to deliver a behavioral weight loss program.
