What are your thoughts around this? I may be bias on this, but I will share with you my thoughts.
Getting to the gym takes motivation. You may think I will find a friend who will go with me, but you may want to rethink that one. When you are really ready to commit to yourself, your goals and your fitness, you need to find the right personal trainer. Personal trainers understand how you can reach your goals in every workout. They hold you accountable to short term and long term goals and create personalized, customized workouts.
If you decide to workout with your friend, they may not have the same goals as you and may want to do different workouts. Therefore, how will you motivate each other? There will be those times when one of you cannot make it, which sets a precedence that it is okay to miss. Not only that, there is a chance you can be uncomfortable, self conscious about yourself and it could become a competition and harm your relationship with your friend.
A personal trainer will help you compete with yourself so ultimately are making yourself better. If you want someone to hold you accountable and that you can count on every time, a personal trainer is the one for you! Get started today…come in for a complementary session.
