So last night I decided to book myself in for my first free personal training session at the gym. I thought, Why not, I may as well get someone to give me feedback on what I'm doing. So, tonight I met with my trainer, and boy did he give me a workout!! Turns out I am doing the right thing, but he pushed me that little bit further that I haven't been doing on my own and I feel great! Mind you, it was totally painful at the time, but I feel good now that the pain has worn off!! Instead of my walk/run interval training he has upgraded me to run/run but with high vs low intensities. Then we hit the weights and I really killed myself! My legs were wobbling like jelly in an earthquake and I pushed when I didn't think I had any more to give!! In just one hour I felt like I did more than when I do 2 1/2 hours on my own. It was definitely well worth it! He also made me realise my weaknesses and the muscles I really need to strengthen up.
I used to think that I wouldn't like having a personal trainer, but tonight was much more than what I expected. He was really informative and supportive and seemed to know exactly what he was doing!! He also knew just the right moment to push me when I was about to quit! It was fantastic! I think I'll continue on with the workout he gave me but book in to see him once a month so that he can yell at me some more and keep me on track! haha
