Hi
thinking of getting a personal trainer to help me with my fitness goals.

Im thinking of jusf getting the 30min session for strength training. Ok naman ako sa cardio. I can already do that on my own

Pls share your experiences sa personal training. How did you select your trainer? What to expect? How to maximize your sessions?

Thank you

for me, I like the 30 mins better.  dati when I was just starting sa gym, 1 hour PT ako.  meron mga cardio part dun, where the trainer is just waiting for me to finish my cardi.  In my opinion, waste of paid minutes yun.

pag 30 mins PT, you have to be at the gym at least 15 mins before your PT sess para warm up ka na.

pansin ko din, dami clients ng PT ko na 30 mins program lang din

things I like about my PT:
- more comfortable for me to have a female PT, than male PT
- hindi ako pinipilit mag avail ng pinaka-mahal ng package
- we start on time (dati kasi yung PT ko, paglate dumating yung na-unang sess sa kin, late din kami magstart)
- she really keeps track of my progress.  every week, she asks for a copy of my InBody results

Regarding PT, alam niyo a magkano PT rates sa Gold's Gym? Meron kasi partnering rate ang Gold's Gym sa company ko, I'm thinking of trying it. Never pa ako nag-gym. Wala akong alam. Haha.

I started availing PT sessions when I got scared/bored to train alone.. maybe insecurities or just want to have company, para may magpush saken na kailangan ko mag-gym kasi may naghihintay. Haha! extra motivation.

Male or Female is ok with me, depende nalang kung medyo may kakaiba sa Male nagpapalit ako. Siguro mga naka more than 5 nako - i have 2 faves kaso hindi sila avail sa current location ko.

Tomorrow I will try to go to Alvin Fitness.. Many celebs go to him and he has a team of 3.. I wanted to try him not because of the artista's but you really SEE a difference, improvements..

I am at 120-ish lbs but I have to tone down for my wedding in 2ish months and almost 1year ako sa 360 with PT and even joined a program but wala masyadong improvements. I even did Herbalife that is why I will go for this one!

I fall, I rise, I make mistakes, I live, I learn, I've been hurt but I'm alive. I'm human, I'm not perfect but I'm thankful.

I got a PT to learn the correct form and be aware of the potential injuries that I might cause myself if I do an exercise incorrectly. The toning, losing weight and other benefits were mostly on me though.

I saw my PT once a week but I wasn't disciplined enough to follow her workout assignments for the days I didn't see her :( tuloy wala masyadong results. Now, I'm still trying to form the habit of working out... I'm so tamad kasi... hay!

I did 42 sessions with a PT and it was really worth it. I learned the proper forms and he was really able to motivate me :)  my body, posture and overall discipline improved.
Right where I wanna be!

Okay talaga magkaroon ng personal trainer. Akala natin ang main job nila is turuan tayo pero ang talagang work namin is to motivate you. Fitness is a lifestyle and a choice. Choice mo kung tutuloy mo pa or hindi Kung walang motivation di ka mag stick sa routine.
