iTRAIN is the brainchild of cofounders Grace Lazenby, a fitness expert with 15 years in the Hollywood training industry, and Sebastian Reant, an entertainment industry executive who is the company's technology and music guru.
"One of the biggest fitness hurdles is boredom.." - Grace Lazenby
Grace & Sebastian set out to create a fitness tool that would provide personalized training with an eclectic mix of music at an affordable price to everyone, everywhere. What resulted is iTRAIN, a web-based fitness program easily downloaded to any MP3 player.I first discovered iTRAIN 5 years ago, while reading Blueprint magazine (a Martha Stewart publication that has since been cancelled). I can remember reading the magazine while on a flight & how excited I was to get home & look up this company! I quickly purchased workouts, & began my relationship with iTRAIN's instructors. (Of course, they never knew me nor saw me, which is good because I definitely talked back to the workouts!)
iTrain breaks up their workout offerings into categories & has such a user friendly website to locate them all. All the workouts are under the "WORKOUT PROGRAMS" page & from there they are broken down into categories based on type of exercise. They offer over 200 workouts!
Each workout is cued by one of their highly trained instructors, who encourage you throughout.
- iTread - treadmill
- iCycle - bike
- iClimb - elliptical
- iRow - rowing machine
- iClimb for the arc trainer
The sculpt & strength category is broken down into workouts based on preference, circuits, body parts, or full body:
- iSculpt - utilizes lighter weights (3lb to 5lb)
- iBallet - incorporates ballet movements
- iStretch combination - mix of yoga, pilates & dance conditioning
- iStretch yoga
My favorites are the cardio workouts, specifically the iTread & iClimb. Each of the cardio workouts begin with instructions on the different levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced), so you pick which cues to follow. For instance, with the iTread, Grace informs you the different speeds if you are a walker, jogger, or runner, and what your target mileage is for that particular workout.
The iTRAIN website lets you hear a sampling of the workouts before you purchase. Once you decide to purchase a workout - it will ALWAYS be available to you through the iTRAIN website under "MY DOWNLOADS".
iTRAIN offers albums where you get several different workouts, for one price, all tailored to one specific goal. They have an album for golfers, post natal, weight loss, cross train, & triathalon, which includes swim workouts! There's also an offering for teens - hiphop & boxing workouts! Nothing like getting the family active! AND there's a whole page dedicated to routines that are again, tailored to YOUR goal! How cool is that!?
And for you visual learners....they do offer video downloads :)
The best thing about all of this? iTRAIN is affordable. They offer 4 different payment options ranging from a year subscription to a la carte, where you pay as you go. iTRAIN also has a referral program where you earn credits based on the amount of referrals you send out. Plus the friends you refer will receive a 20% discount on their first purchase.
With iTRAIN you can take your trainer with you literally, everywhere you go. Vacation exercise slumps are no longer a problem!
