I Got a Personal Trainer

This morning I had my first session with my personal trainer, Karen, and she kicked my butt! I've been thinking about getting a trainer for awhile and decided now was finally the time to do it.

-I'm done with marathon training for the year, so I don't have to worry about saving myself for long runs.

-While marathon training, I neglected strength training a bit. Now's the time to rebuild my strength and tone up for my wedding.

-I am bored with my workouts! I try to mix things up, but I still find myself doing the same thing over and over again. Bad for the brain and bad for the body.

-I need someone to push me that little extra bit. I'm good at getting myself to the gym, but when no one is there to hold me accountable its too easy to back off when it really starts to hurt.

-I want some company. I run and do most of my gym sessions by myself. I am tired of myself!

-I hope it will help me with nighttime eating. I'll be ashamed to admit to my trainer that I sat on the couch all night eating ice cream.

I was a little nervous because I am pretty independent and I don't like people telling me what to do. I was a afraid I would get annoyed with her and think I could do better by myself.

Luckily though, Oour first session was great. I didn't do a single exercise that I do on my own and I was really challenged. We used the TRX straps, medicine balls, bands, balls and boxes. She had me bear crawling backwards on 1 foot under a band, supporting myself in a plank with 1 foot in the TRX strap, and jumping higher than I thought possible. I was dripping sweat and definitely worked harder than I would have on my own.

I just wish I could afford to do it every week!

Have you ever worked with a trainer? What was the best thing the trainer taught you?


  1. Woo hoo! That is exciting you got a trainer! I worked with one for a few years before I became one. The best thing he taught me was the importance of a strong core!

  2. Its good ideas have to share about personal trainer and Awesomestow female Boxfit instructors available here tfitpower.co.uk and we consult you.
