So I joined 24 HR Fitness in May of 2009, went to the gym religiously 3-4 times a week, for 1 to 2.5 hours a day, for 3 months. AND saw absolutely no weight loss.
Now, I'm used to going to the gym working out like a mad woman used to do 5 hours a day (crazy, I know, but I was bored), and would lose weight. So I was very surprised when after 3 months of being committed to exercising, and watching what I eat that I lost nothing, not a pound! The only thing I lost was my motivation to go to the gym.
Fast forward to now. I decided that I wanted to go back to the gym, and try a new routine. I received a free personal training certificate in the mail during the holidays and thought it would be a perfect opportunity.
My first session will be tomorrow. I have to say that I already have a bad feeling about the trainer, it took me 5 days to get in contact with him, I kept on getting one excuse to another form his coworkers on why he could not come to the phone to set up a personal training appt. ( I even went there in person). But we'll see how tomorrow goes, I'm going determined to make the best out of it and to learn a routine that can help me lose weight. If he does turn out to be ok I would like to do training sessions every week. It'll be expensive but I like the motivation of having someone there. So wish me luck! :-)
Do any of you guys go to a trainer? Or have any of you been to a trainer? What was/is your experience, was it good, bad, etc...
