personal trainers, a good call
If the promise of instant cool points wasn’t enough to make you want the new iPhone, maybe the idea of streaming a personal training session directly onto that 4.5″ x 2.4″ screen will make you ditch that Motorola Razr once and for all. Fitness guru Joel Harmon and his Personal POD Training workouts provide not just the audio instruction and verbal encouragement that have become popular with tech-savvy gymgoers over the past year, but the visual, how-to component once only accessible through personal-training sessions done in the (sweaty) flesh. For $24.99 per month, you can download 30-day home, weight room, or body-weight resistance workouts that promise not only results, but exercises modeled by trainers, so you can make sure your feet are aligned correctly for those squat-thrust reps. Motivational words still come standard, provided on screen and in personal conversations with Harmon: The monthly fee includes unlimited e-mail dialogue with Joel himself (Skype-ing and iChat exchanges will no doubt be taken into consideration for Personal POD Training version 2.0).
