So here in Canada they have these awesome coupon places called Groupon and Couvon. Well, about a month ago I purchased one which cost me $75 for 3 personal training sessions with Kristie Byer at Chikara Kickboxing and Total Fitness.
Well I have to say, it was an awesome experience and I definitely suggest doing it! If you live in Victoria, I would absolutely recommend Kristie to anyone. In fact, my mother, who has battled with her weight issues for more than half of her life, is going to start working with her! I am so excited about that!
What I liked about having a personal trainer:
- She was very encouraging
- She really listened to what I wanted to work on and taught me a bunch of moves I could do at home with minimal equipment
- She made a 1-2 month fitness plan for me on our last day so that I can go home and work at it and, if I want, I can come back and she can re-do the fitness plan for me to work on my own
- She didn't pressure me to keep coming to the training sessions after I had finished my 3rd lesson
- Time went by so fast with the fun regimes she made for me!
So, if you've been thinking about doing personal training I would totally suggest it. If I were to do it again I would probably go once a month for a whole year. That way, she could see how I was doing and help me with new work out ideas so that I wouldn't get bored and would be more likely to go to the gym on my own.
What about you? Do you have any experience working with a Personal Trainer?
