Personal trainers are a great way to get motivated. Problem is that some of us can't afford one, or that we are just too shy to even go there. Well, what about a virtual personal trainer?
Maya, the Yourself!Fitness ($24.99-$34.99) personal trainer, will help you choose your health and fitness goals and then she will work with you to achieve them. Virtual Maya will guide you through workouts (there are over 500 exercises) and you're not supposed to ever have the same workout twice. You get to choose everything from your music to your mood to your focus areas, and Maya will take care of the rest.
Once you set up your preferences Maya guides you through your workout, giving you step-by-step coaching from warm-up to cool-down, all in the comfort of your own home. You can buy Yourself!Fitness for your Playstation2, xBox or PC directly from the Yourself!Fitness site. I think I am more of a people person when it comes to training, but this is definitely a great concept!
