That First Personal Training Session…
I started working out at Evolution Fitness in January of 2014, and fell in love with fitness all over again. I’d been out of the game for over a year and my physical and mental health had definitely suffered. I found work out buddies to keep me motivated and began showing up 3 or 4 days a week.
Fast forward to May, when I began working at Evolution Fitness as their Marketing & Communications Director. I maintained my workout routine for the year or so, then found myself working out less and less frequently… all work and no work out. Pretty sad when you work for a gym right? So I promised myself, no more! So I enlisted the help of a Personal Trainer to help me jump start my renewed motivation. I schedule my first session for early one Tuesday morning and was terrified. As someone who works for Evolution, I know all about our Personal Training program – I see other’s results, I get to know trainers one-on- one, but I was still terrified for my first ever training session.
Nervously I showed up, got my butt kicked, and could not have been happier with my experience. I had worked out with friends and co-workers in the past and thought I was pushing myself – I was wrong. Having a trainer there to encourage and motivate me made a huge difference, I was able to overcome barriers and push through where I would normally give up. I was sore for days after that first session, and loved it!
It took me almost a year to muster up the courage to attend my first personal training session, and I can’t believe I waited so long! Having a trainer has completely changed
the way I work out. The motivation, the results, the diversity… there are so many benefits that I didn’t realize existed. So if you’re considering it – do it, you won’t regret it!
