A sucker is born every day...

And I'm one of them. Oh, I am so that person. Maybe it's not so much being a sucker. It's more that when I really want something (of think I want something) I tend to be very impulsive. It gets me into trouble sometimes.

But maybe not this time. I hope not. You see, I have really gone off the deep end this time. I signed up for a whole year of personal training at my gym. I know. I'm nervous and excited and all those things when you know you may have gone too far (in this case financially), but you also know the possibility of good that can come of it (um, goal?). Ah yes, let me just get all these thoughts out of my head, lest they make me truly go insane. 

Can you tell I'm a little conflicted about this? 

Truth be told, I really am pumped. I bargained them down to a price I thought was reasonable per month, and it's more than just PT. They design your program weekly and take measurements and other baseline assessments monthly so you can see your progress. Do you think they would think I was crazy if I asked them to take pictures? Ha. This afternoon is my first appointment. I'll report back on Monday!

Good for you! I'd take a camera or your phone and ask for the pictures. You'll be glad you have them and I'm sure you won't be the first that asked and if you are, so what!

Maria, I did 10 months with a trainer and I would have kept with it if i could have, but my neck surgery inturrupted it and now that I want to go back, my trainer is no longer at the gym. It's a GOOD commitment and knowing you paid, you will stick with it. It is great you did it! :)

I actually don't think they'd think it's crazy at all to ask them to take pictures. You should totally do that! I've got that same impulsive streak in me and it's tough sometimes. But I think this was a good move. Good luck!

That sounds great... not financially, but our health is an investment. You sound take your camera, and document your journey... I know we'd love to see the photos. Good for You! XOXO *The Other Maria*

The fact that you paid for it up front will be incentive to keep up with it! Exercise is a very necessary evil...whether you get it at a gym or just by walking! You will see results! Good for you!

That's wonderful! I had a personal trainer for a while. He was well worth the money. I think you'll enjoy it. :)
