Okay, so I'm back from my first of two that I can afford sessions with KEVIN WILLIAMS, the personal trainer from PurpleCrown, LLC, in the DC-VA-MD area.

YES, Virginia, there is a Satan Clause: If you're overweight and out of shape, you PAY FOR IT when a guy who knows what he's doing puts you through your paces.

Turns out, as I'd feared, I'd been going about exercise completely bass-ackwards and sideways to boot. He showed me how to keep moving the entire time; how to work my core, work my major muscle groups, and cardio. He told me how many to do, when to do them, and this-that-and-the-other.

Best of all: he specifically showed me exercises I can do at home or at the gym without needing anyone to stand watch over me (probably more effective if someone does, though).

I made him laugh, though. He taught me how to do hip lifts (LE SHOCK: I ACTUALLY got 'em up off the ground!) and, halfway through, I snarked: "Do you teach people this so we can get DATES?"

He's a pro, though; laughed, but didn't lose count. XD

If anyone needs me, I shall be busy bathing the stink of a righteous sweat off and then rubbing in the muscle relaxer before PASSING THE HECK OUT.
