Are $ for a personal trainer worth it? Opinions welcomed!
Wednesday, June 01, 2011
So Spark friends..looking for some opinions..I have had some forced adjustments to my workout regime. I can no longer run ( at least for the next 6 months), which has always been my "go to exercise". I am doing some biking, but the knee is very unpredictable..I have tried doing the gym thing on my own, but have been sporadic...
I have discovered I tend to be successful when I have accountability..I joined the local running room , which meets 3 x week, so that gave me that accountability..I joined SparkPeople for the weight loss..Connecting , blogging and making challenges with others gave me accountability..
So my question..I have a gym membership..I have been assessed and presented with a 6month program to attain my goal of loosing my last 20-30 lbs, and getting toned..It would give me a specific time period 3x / week with a personal trainer ( all to myself for one hour)..Sounds great,,, its expensive..
Is it worth it? Would love to hear from anyone who has tried this route ( plus and minus). Thanks!!
