Almost a year ago, I wrote about my experiences signing up with a personal trainer at LA Fitness. Was it worth it? Well, as much as I hate answers like this…it depends.
I can tell you that I’m very happy that $120 is not going to be charged anymore on my credit card this month. On the other hand, I’m thinking of getting a housekeeper now that I have the extra money each month – which is ironic given that I gave up a house cleaning service to get a personal trainer. Priorities change in a year, I suppose.
On the other hand, I loved every personal training session we had. Here’s a confession though – we didn’t use them very often. I had signed us up for 4 per month and we still have about 35 sessions left. Whoops. Luckily, I had asked at the beginning and they said the sessions won’t expire so we can keep using them even after I stop paying monthly. Because of this, I’d say that it was worth getting.
I learned a lot from our trainer and I’m looking forward to continue learning from him. I don’t regret buying it because it’s something I’ve always wanted but I wouldn’t buy it a second time. The one thing I would change is that I would talk to places outside of the gym for a personal trainer – Yelp would be a great place to start and look up the competition.
Have you ever had a personal trainer? Did you think it was worth it?
