    I had one that came with three free sessions when I joined a gym, once. It was a bust. He was a college kid who was more interested in looking good and chatting up the girls than working with an overweight “older woman” (I was 28 at the time).

    I would, however, consider working with another one, if our personalities meshed.

    I’ve never had a personal trainer, but think it would be worth it as long as she would be qualified (and not some college girl wanting to chat up boys). I say “she” because I think ‘d feel more comfortable with a person that has the same gender as me.

    No, but it would be nice to have one. Of course that would require going to the gym though. Maybe I don’t want one then. 🙂

    No I havent.If I had one maybe it would push me into doing what I should.I do need someone to push me.I slack off easy.

    No. I never have either. I guess you’d need to go to a gym to work out though in order to have one wouldn’t you??

      I’m sure there are ‘freelance’ trainers out there… ones who will come to your home and work with what you have… go for a walk/run/bike around town, lift gallon jugs of water or sand or whatever.

    I haven’t. Well, when I was 22 I joined the gym at the university and they tested me and put together a “specialized program” for me. In those days I was so exceptionally strong and healthy, they didn’t really know what to do with me. They gave me some stuff to do but I get very bored with repetitive exercise without a change of scene – not to mention my aversion to the smell of others’ sweat. So needless to say that didn’t go very far. I should have quit a lot sooner than I did – I think I paid for like 2 years of gym membership and only went there about 3 times.

    Fast forward 20 years, and I could probably benefit from a personal trainer. Not because I don’t have any good ideas of my own, but because I’m not motivated to get up off my butt often enough. I still wouldn’t want to exercise in a gym, but if I had a program of backyard exercise / walking / hiking / etc. that I “had” to do every day, that would really be good for me. I think.

    I have never had a personal trainer and at this point in my life I won’t be getting one. I do pretty well on my own, but if I ever get lazy I might consider it.

    No but I used to be a member of a gym and the trainer there was SO inappropriate! WOW he got fired eventually! A good friend of mine and Jason’s is a personal trainer and he’s very professional. I don’t enjoy “working out” per say. I like doing things like hiking~biking~walking…that keeps me somewhat in shape. I do enjoy yoga and palates and really need to get back into the swing of things. I can’t do the same thing every day…I get too bored with it. It takes a lot to keep my attention.

    I have only had a training session once with the gym I signed up with. It was GREAT! She got me on a program that I have been on for about 7 months. I am motivated enough to do it, but I wish I could afford to see a trainer once every couple of months to help me keep my workout fresh, check in on how I am doing, redefine my goals and keep me on track so that I maintain my routine and maybe make it better. You definitely have to keep it fresh.
