First session with personal trainer!
Crikey. I had my first personal training session this evening and have been found wanting. Despite the fact that I have been attending a gym regularly (not often, mind you, but regularly) for approximately 5 years I have to admit to going into it with an attitude of 'how bad can this be'? Answer: very. Things are serious, oh yes indeed. Shamefully high body fat percentage, shamefully capability in performing lunges either a) more than 15 times in a row or b) without falling over. Things started off dodgy when the trainer measured my heart rate and found it high. 'Drink a lot of coffee do you?' he said knowingly. Nope. It was merely 'extremely elevated' as a result of my 5-minute 'warm-up' on the stepper. I am mightily embarrassed, mainly by how few pressups I can do - yes, even the girls' kind - and a percentage of body fat that I cannot bring myself to record here. But I'm staying positive as at least I'm doing the best thing, right? Signing up for frequent, tough workout sessions. And I'm going to have no choice but to follow his advice because otherwise I'm wasting money I don't have. Is anyone else going down the personal trainer route and how effective is it proving? Sorry for the rambly post, my h2b is out boozing (the lucky article) I'm exhausted and just wanted to share!
