Web 2.0

So i checked out the site and found some really great websites. Obviously given my background being a personal trainer and teaching people how to be personal trainers i checked out the site PEERtrainer under the health category. I love the accountability and motivation behind it. It enables people to help others within their "group" and jot down information from their personal workouts and share with others. Obviously those are great things, but as i look at this site what i find most interesting is the ability to gain knowledge from others experiences and build a personal library of workouts. I believe one of the most important aspects of exercise is the variability of workouts along with proper specificity and progression. Most have the specificity down and progress to some degree, but with this i believe it will be much easier for people to get new ideas without even knowing how to build a program. This broad body of virtually infinite workouts at ones fingertips gives the inexperienced a chance to use great programs without the use of a trainer or coach. Physical performance techniques and information about training has grown exponentially in the past decade, training is nothing like what it used to be in years past. Sites like this are the future of training as we share experiences; both positive and negative and continue to grow and get better.
