    • I loved it since the personal trainer that I had was wonderful and really worked with me. I am considering hiring one again fr a few sessions to offer me suggestions. There are also a lot of free virtual trainers online that you might want to check out. Good luck!

    • I have one and I love it! I can exercise all on my own but what she offers is an understanding of the crap I put my body thru and how to fix it.
      I have blogged about the breathing exercises she has me doing that not only helps me to breathe but also is reteaching me how to hold in my stomach.
      I have lost about 6 inches in my waistline since working wiht her.....

    • WTG Vikki! I have never had one and to be honest I don’t go to the gym...maybe that is something I should think about.

    • Good to hear such positive reviews. I just started working with one and I’m very pleased so far. I’m doing things I’d never do on my own.

    • I worked out with a trainer once a week for a year.  I worked out another 2 to 3 days a week on my own.  I didn’t really see results though I enjoyed it.  I didn’t put a lot of effort into the diet side so maybe that was the problem? I am a very healthy eater to begin with so not much to cut out though I am curious about the shakes someone mentioned.  Several people have told me about using whey protein shakes and seeing a difference.

    • I have both worked with PT’s and have worked as a PT... I have to say that a PT can assess your fitness leve and create a program for you, help cheer you on and hold you accountable, but the bottom line is that YOU have to stay honest, make yourself accountable, find the motivation, and DO THE WORK.

      With that said, not everyone needs a PT. There are a lot of good books and programs out there. Any decent diet/exercise program will work, if the participant works the program!

      FWIW...
