I Have a Personal Trainer... Because I Suck at Math...

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

So I finally used the free personal training session that my gym offers with my membership. I liked my trainer immediately, and for some reason, being told what to do made strength training really bearable... almost fun....

So when she suggested follow up sessions, I didn't hide my wallet away as I had planned to do, especially when I heard that they offered half hour sessions. And if you buy a series of 10, you get a steep discount! How could I resist?

The man at the desk showed me the rate: $49 per session if you bought ten. I did the math quickly in my head... ten sessions at $49 per session... 149 dollars! I can afford that!

I pulled out my credit card and he brought me the receipt, and I immediately realized my error. Ten times forty-nine is most definitely NOT one hundred forty-nine.... definitely not.
But I couldn't let him see that I didn't even have the math skills of a first grader, so I signed the stupid receipt.

I had better really, really, REALLY like my personal trainer.

    Ouch -- that sounds like something I would do!

You'll just have to make a point of making every session worth that $49. Good luck!!! And remember to have fun!

    well it stinks that it costs so much but on the brightside at $49 dollars a pop you know you won't be slacking off on any of your appointments. Good Luck
