Gave the trainerly app on my iPad a go this morning. Did not figure out how to turn on the camera until I needed to sign off. It appears to be easy. The screen did not flip so iPad had to be vertical and you were small and screen shot was horizontal.... Just so you know. Cheers, Elizabeth Lemon

Nice exercises, takes time to speak to individuals after the lesson - makes it so more personal, much appreciated.
