As toddlers, people try to look fit by wearing inflatable biceps while swimming and using markers to draw muscle-veins on their calves. Let a guru lead the way to grown-up fitness with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a three-month online personal-training program with FitOrbit (a $195 value; $14.99 a week for a 13-week plan).
FitOrbit's simple system gets results with an individualized, easy-to-follow roadmap to better health. First, select an online personal trainer who best suits your fitness goals. You'll have access to this muscle maven round-the-clock, so you can get personalized fitness information before heading to the gym, while doing cardio exercises at home, or after having broken ground on the town's newest parking lot. Your trainer will forge a customized fitness and nutrition plan, laying out a daily diet and workout routine that fits your schedule and capabilities. A sample FitOrbit plan might include a workout of 10 moves in 10 minutes, cinnamon and spice oatmeal for breakfast, apple slices and almond butter for a snack, a portobello and mozzarella sandwich for lunch, vegetables and hummus for an afternoon snack, and baja fish tacos with snap peas for dinner.
Once you attack your get-fit plan, FitOrbit's online logging tools make it easy to track progress and results. After three months, you will have the essential confidence and knowledge to effortlessly plow through any routine, even if it's gargling marbles.

- All in all, I think the FitOrbit model makes sense in a modern world where people are increasingly growing accustomed to getting what they would usually have to leave the house for and pay a premium for real life interaction over the wire. For those interested in contracting a real life personal trainer, it's definitely worth comparing the costs and effectiveness of FitOrbit to the real deal. — TechCrunch.com
- The company doesn’t only offer a personal trainer service though – you’ll also get access to nutrition information, with your trainer carefully picking your meals and arranging your diet to your own likings. — HealthBeautyReview.com
