SHOULD I GET A TRAINER?
This is probably the most important decision we have made in the last year. We bit the bullet, got over our fear and budgeted for a personal trainer. But was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!! It’s easy to tell your self or even your spouse that you don’t feel like going to the gym this morning. But tell that to your trainer, not very easy. The cool thing about getting a trainer is it takes no effort to start. When you start going to the gym there is that big hurdle of getting motivated to go. When you have someone giving up an hour of their morning just for you, you will get up and go. They are not there just to push you through a workout you don’t want to do. They are there to encourage, track, teach and challenge you to be the person you want to be.
Can I afford it?
More than likely. Do you eat out more than once a week? Do you buy coffee, energy drinks or soda (pop if you’re from Ohio) every day? My Wife and I spend $60 a week for 2 hour long sessions. Yes it cost money, but you won’t find a better return on investment.
How about life insurance. My 30 year term life insurance was going to cost me over $622.00 a month because of my health and lifestyle. My Goal Weight of 215lbs will cost me $59.19 a month. That’s a $562.18 savings every MONTH ($6,744 per year). So, a year or two with a trainer pretty cheap! This is only the tip of the iceberg though. Being healthy is the cheapest way to live.
