You go to an accountant to do your taxes, a lawyer for legal work, and a mechanic to fix your car, so shouldn't you approach a professional for your fitness needs? Why do most people think they can do it on their own?
Would you do a root canal on yourself? I don't think so! Now before you throw out the "comparing apples to oranges" argument, think about it... You can get seriously hurt if you don't do things right in the gym, and I'm not just talking about exercise technique. If your programming is inappropriate, you're setting yourself up for injury.
I know what you're thinking, there's a cost to hiring a fitness professional. Of course there is, but as the saying goes, "You can either pay now or pay later!" Invest in yourself, you deserve it, and I guarantee that it will pay off down the road.
Take-Home Message: Don't sacrifice quality for price. Remember, you get what you pay for! Do some research and find the right trainer for you, someone that has a good blend of knowledge, experience, and results. And if you plan to go on a regular basis, make sure the location and time is convenient.
To your success,
