I used to want one because I thought that having one would help me get in better shape but now I am really enjoying working out with hubby, in the privacy of our home. I don't think I would use one even if they were free. I want to do this by myself and know that I did it!

If it was one that would work one on one with me in my home then maybe. They could help me get a weight program started and may be able to help me get past this plateau. But for the most part, I think I am doing okay on my own so I would probably pass.

Actually, I'm not sure. My first thought it yes, why not? I do think it would be nice to have a program that I know is designed to maximize my time and effort. But in reality, I'm not sure all trainers really know what they are doing, and I live like 40 miles from the nearest gym and no way am I gonna have some trainer (or almost anybody else really) come to my house!

I love my trainers past and present. They get me on the right track and keep me going when I want to stop, which is a big problem for me. They give me the kick in the pants that I can't give myself.

I would rather have a nutritionist then a personal trainer. I have no problem working out, its staying on track eating that I need to work on more.

I hired a personal trainer last May because I had a specific goal that I was unable to achieve on my own....push-ups. He was trained and had extra certifications in nutrition and rehabilitation type stuff. He was on staff at our fitness center and was able to take over where physical therapy leaves off, after you feel better and need to get back into shape. He would build a program with your injuries in mind and make it so you didn't reinjure yourself. I worked with him for a few months and it was well worth it!

He taught me how to lift, like really lift. Dead lifts, heavy squats, clean and press, etc. That instruction and him making sure my form was perfect was so worth the money! Now, I use the concepts he taught me to make my own workouts and it is good to know I won't hurt myself doing it.

If I could afford it I would definitely hire one again, even for just once a week of learning new stuff.

That is where I wouldn't mind a trainer. To learn new exercises and make sure I'm doing them right. But, I don't think I would want one long term. I prefer to work out at home so that's my biggest reason for not caring for a trainer. I wish they would come to you. LOL.

Yes... on the condition that they would also help me with the night shift... Getting up 2-3 times a night is pretty rough.
