Look at how many people pay money for the gym and never or rarely go. The times that I have been most disciplined in getting to the gym are when I am meeting somebody there. I knew that the trainer would not let me flake out and there would be accountability--weight, body measurements and body fat analysis. Part of the reason a person pays for personal training is to have an actual person to motivate and hold them accountable.
I think that face-to-face contact is very important, especially when pushing the person to the limit and beyond what they think they can do. When I have worked out with a trainer, I did things that I never thought I could do. Although it may work for some, I believe it wouldn`t work for the majority.
