First Day with the personal trainer
Thursday, September 05, 2013
Yesterday was my first personal trainer appointment... which meant that Chris was gonna assess my capabilities. I was really nervous, first time for anything scares me.
Chris' studio is in the basement of his house, both he and his wife are trainers. It's a nice set up, and they can't have more than 3 clients there at any one time.
So I get to the training session only to learn that Chris had overbooked the hour - I was the extra person and that another woman was there too.
He was very apologetic and asked if it was okay if we worked out together - I didn't know what else to do but say yes, it is someone I know :)
(Back story - Chris graduated with my youngest daughter and how I found out he even had a studio was that Em called me last week to ask me to watch the boys in October for her 15th class reunion, and that one of her classmates has breastcancer for which there's a benefit and Chris is donating is time as a personal trainer.... so I looked his up on facebook and found his studio - went and talked to him about what I wanted to accomplish of which he said he could help me do.... The woman that he booked me with is Jody and I taught her in Sunday School - she was in school between my daughters... very small world)
The session went very smoothly, because it was my first obviously I needed alot of direction, but I was pleased with how I did and the attention I got.... my real problem here is that Jody would like a training partner, so for half the price I could share Chris with her and keep the Monday - Wednesday after work schedule.... or I could go it alone and try to figure out a different time. She wants to just lose weight and tone up. I want that but am interested in working on my running stride also.... I didn't decide anything yesterday. Chris and I are meeting tomorrow morning for a run so he can access my run - I'm not giving up on why I hired a trainer, but possibly I can use this more to my advantage, and do the joint session, plus some one-on-one time too!?!
