"The trending virtual workouts, such as downloadable exercise classes in either audio or video form, mobile fitness apps and fitness-based social media networks, continue to grow in popularity especially as the level of awareness and interest rises in regards to overall health and wellness," said Stern. "In the fast-paced environment we live in, people are gravitating towards an online workout regimen that they can access anywhere, anytime and often in the privacy of their own homes."

Research shows that virtual workouts yield real-world results making it a popular fitness option. Working out with a virtual trainer or partner – who is considered present and a superior partner – increases motivation levels in people and provides a consistent workout regimen anywhere, anytime. Virtual workouts are suitable for those who don't always have the time to go to a 'gym' to get their exercise and as an alternative for the outdoor athlete, when the climate is less than optimal for outdoor physical activity. They also remove the social anxiety that some people feel while working out in public, and eliminate the inconvenience of scheduling a workout.

Can you really get in shape in front of a computer or mobile device? Stern says, "Yes! A Web-based video exercise regimen can indeed get you get fit for any season and help you to reach your personal fitness goals."

The videos focus on stretching, core strength building, strength training and improving flexibility and balance.

And, act as a virtual fitness trainer / workout partner to those who cannot always get to the gym to exercise, looking to supplement their workout routine and who are traveling." added Stern.
