With all of that, what I am about to say may make absolutely NO SENSE to you...but I will share nonetheless. I joined a gym. Wait wait wait, before you gasp and wonder why I would waste my money, let me explain! I am trying to figure out all of my shortcomings and roadblocks and what I can do to overcome them. And to be honest, working out regularly is a challenge for me. And beyond that, working out with intensity is difficult for me. So, when I kept seeing a special for a local gym for $14.95 per month with a month-to-month contract, I absolutely HAD to learn more. Once I went in, I saw some machines that of course would help me tone certain areas that I may not be able to do on my own, but does that justify me joining, even if it is only $15?! The answer is no. I joined specifically to hire a personal trainer. My mother hired one a few months ago and got fantastic results. I wanted to hire a trainer for a number of reasons, please allow me to share:
- To be pushed beyond my comfort zone and my own limitations. This will really accelerate my weight lose, help me to burn more calories, and get my trouble zones toned more quickly.
- To force me to exercise regularly. If I make an appointment, I am going to keep it. That is really simple enough.
- Its the "accountability" factor. If I have to weigh in & have my measurements taken in front of someone I'm going to do what I have to do to get those results. I think that is why Weight Watchers worked for me also.
- I want to get my money's worth. I won't slack off when working with the trainer because I am paying my good money for it!
