Hi All, before I started Couch25K, the only exercise I ever did was resistance/weight training. I loved that but after having my baby, funds and time didn't permit for me to continue training with my previous trainer. In the meantime someone referred me to a site where you can get personal trainers to come to your home and train you, at a cost much less than a gym PT (as they dont have to pay rent etc). I met the PT in my local area and liked her but.....she was quoting a price higher than the listed one in the website but then explained the deal in a way that it would be in my budget. Later on she changed the quote further. The final quote was still wayyyy better monetarily than a gym PT. No doubt about it. But for some reason, I felt really bad and violated at them not being upfront about the prices. I heard that other trainers from that site quote higher prices as well and most people haggle with them. I personally find haggling very draining and felt really bad at the prices being changed and old information being denied! As a result I decided to do less sessions of shorter duration but still go back to my gym PT. He is more expensive but at least upfront about it and compromises with time and deals.
I may be overreacting to the situation but I have no idea why I felt so bad. But anyway, I thought I would still share this in case you do want to go for the work out at home option for resistance training to add to couch 25k. The concept is amazing but just look out for the prices being diff to what is mentioned in the site.
