Lotus makes a good suggestion.
One option is to get a trainer for just a couple of sessions, rather than every time he works out.
Once to design a program for your hubby, and perhaps a second just to ensure that he is using the correct form (no disrespect to your hubby, just that the correct form is hard to judge for yourself - much easier for someone else to see what you are doing).
Once he knows the program, having the trainer there is not necessary, and not adding much value.
He may need another session with the trainer in 6- 8 weeks time, as likely he will have gained strength and need a new/updated workout program to maintain the same degree of challenge.
This is waaay cheaper than using a trainer every session.
If after telling the trainer your budget constraints, he is unwilling to do this, get another trainer.
You are good to your hubby for trying to find ways to meet his needs.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
