Wello brings affordable personal training to your home

Sarah Jacobsson Purewal | April 17, 2013
There are several reasons I'm not big on personal trainers: First, they're expensive. For example, trainers at my gym start at $60/hour--and that's on top of my membership fee. Second, they're inconvenient. I'm a night owl by nature, and nobody is offering personal trainer services at 2 a.m. on a Tuesday morning. (At least not that I've been able to find). Lastly, as a self-motivated gym rat who's been lifting for years, I'm somewhat skeptical about whether personal training is really worth it.

Overall, Wello is a pretty neat service, and it's found a niche. I especially liked the fact that trainers are available at all times (nice for night owls and/or for travelers), and that they're able to work with the space you have available. I definitely felt like I'd be able to use this service in a hotel room while on vacation, which is a big plus. It's also relatively affordable, and you save money (and time) by not having to leave your house (or office, or wherever you choose to work out).

Personal training still isn't really my thing, but this service definitely makes the entire idea more palatable. Having someone there to motivate you works wonders, even if they're just on a computer screen.
