Seeing a personal trainer can be very expensive - around $50 a session - but the benefits of a program tailored to your personal needs and goals can be invaluable. Have you ever employed a personal trainer to help you achieve your fitness goals?
I've never employed a trainer no, I never had need of it until I had multiple kids. Now it would be too hard to coordinate the time. We just got a treadmill because I can use that when ever I have time, I don't need an appointment.
I've used trainers at various times. I had a specific weightloss goal once and I got a "package deal" at the gym I joined that included a few personal training sessions. Whenever I join a gym I get a session first up so they can show me how to use the equipment properly and help me put together a program. When I was pregnant I was doing body balance and also saw a personal trainer - my final training session was when I was 41 and a half weeks pregnant! It was great as she could make sure I was doing the exercises correctly. I now go to a trainer on a weekly basis with a friend. It's great for building my strength and a fantastic social opportunity - a lot healthier than going out for cake! And because we both go the cost is shared.
