iTrain is a subscription-based program in which personalized workouts are downloaded to your MP3 player of choice. You're coached over the headphones while you participate in any number of exercises, including treadmill, elliptical, cycling, strength training, pilates, yoga and ballet workouts.

Hollywood fitness expert Grace Lazenby, who has trained celebrities and has her own exercise video series, is the brainchild behind iTrain. She partnered with an entertainment industry executive who helped her create her newest product, which has garnered the attention of Courtney Cox and the Pussycat Dolls.

iTrain aims to “democratize personal training,” by talking you through workouts created by fitness experts. It was also created to prevent the usual boredom that ensues after you have been exercising to a particular routine and have found yourself yawning during the workout. With a variety of exercise programs to choose from, it packs versatility with accessibility.

PRO
  • Much less expensive than having a personal trainer
  • Requires self-motivation
  • iTrain has a number of different workouts that you can choose from
  • Interacts with any MP3 player
  • Personalized plans
CON
  • Requires self-motivation
  • Requires that you have access to a computer, an Internet connection and an MP3 player
  • Not a specific exercise program per se
DIET and NUTRITION

iTrain also has an iTrain Diet, that you can download. It is a six-week diet makeover that includes tips on how to eat and exercise and is supposed to allow you to lose 5-10 pounds in two weeks.

EXERCISE

Each work out that you choose includes the trainer’s voice providing you with step-by-step instructions. These instructions are accompanied by music, which help to keep you motivated while you move. The exercise instructions are also available on a video format or through a PDF file, both of which can be downloaded to your computer. These visual instructions illustrate how to perform the exercises and display the positions of each of the movements.

iTrain’s team of fitness specialists create exercise programs based upon their own area of expertise such as strength training, yoga or dance. In addition, the iTrain workout menu is updated each month.

CONCLUSION

iTrain is a portable guide to stay in shape with its easy downloads and step-by-step instructions. This new wave in fitness might be a great solution for those who don’t leave home without their MP3 player. If you’re someone who gets bored easily of a workout routine, iTrain’s ever-changing menu of workouts will keep things new and fresh. But if you’re someone who needs more hands-on instruction to motivate you or if you’re not a gadget freak, you may want to search elsewhere for an exercise program.

I use iTrain and first downloaded a few of the free short tasters to get an idea of what was on offer. I was impressed by what I heard and subscribed for a year.

Unlike other posters, I didn't find it confusing, but it did require that I sit down and sort out what I was going to eat (proteins, carbs etc) from a comprehensive list that was provided.

I do enjoy planning my workouts and get easily bored with doing the same routine over and over, so this suits me perfectly.

For those that bought an album, there is a breakdown on the website of which exercise should be performed on which day. It should ideally be included in the download, but I found it easily on the website.

If you enjoy classes at the gym or can't afford a personal trainer (or don't want the expense) then this is a good idea.

Yes, it does require self-motivation and commitment, but if you really want to make a difference to your body, then I would recommend it.

I recently purchased one of the 6 week programs. I find the program to be very confusing. There really aren't any instructions as to how to use the workouts for the 6 weeks and, more importantly, it seems to be missing several key videos. I have been emailing and calling customer service for over a day now and have not had one response. I'm not very happy with this purchase that I can't return nor get any help on.

This is a good programme for those who are into their fitness and are reasonably well coordinated. I am a trained fitness teacher and although there are instructional demos showing you the moves, I dont think some people would have the patience to keep going back to the instructions when listening to the workout on their ipod. If you want variation and need an extra push these workouts are for you. I downloaded the 6 week programme and will also try the diet but have not found it very simple to understand e.g in the food programme there are many variations and I thought I was just buying a 6 week programme.
