Episode 16: How Virtual Personal Training Can Help Us Reach Our Goals w/Jeff McMahon

For busy working parents, going to the gym isn’t exactly the easiest thing to fit into our schedules. However, we can still get in a workout without leaving the house. Why is virtual training such a great new way for entrepreneurs to stay fit, and why is it something very few people know about? How does virtual training help us stay accountable to our fitness goals?

On this episode, virtual personal trainer Jeff McMahon shares on how he started his business, and why this type of training is so great for entrepreneurs.

The accountability is the main thing a virtual trainer offers, along with convenience. -Jeff McMahon

Things We Learned From This Episode

  1.   How Jeff connected with influencers (04:59 – 06:05)

Training Pat Flynn for free, for a year, was a strategy to get a powerful testimonial and to connect to other influencers and entrepreneurs looking for a great personal trainer. It may not have brought in business instantly, but it did pay off in the long-run.


  1. The biggest problem virtual training solves (06:29 – 07:43)

Going to the gym is not complicated, but people are often too busy to make it happen. At the same time, working out on our own lacks the accountability that takes us to the next level. A virtual trainer solves this problem very well.


  1. Why a virtual trainer helps us know more about our body (12:48 – 13:13)

Most people don’t know how to listen to their bodies, and it’s often unclear where to look for reliable information and guidance. A virtual personal trainer represents a wealth of knowledge, and an understanding of how to apply that knowledge to your needs and goals.


A lot of moms and dads spend their time putting everyone else first, to the point that they start neglecting themselves. The truth is, we’re only hurting everyone else because they don’t get to see us at 100% happiness. A virtual personal trainer can make it easier for us to take that time for self-care, while helping us to reach or maintain our fitness goals with better consistency than we could on our own.
