I had my first day back at the gym today for aggggges!! I can't even remember the last time I went. I was dreading it to be honest, the thought of putting in all the effort so daunting and I didn't know where to start. But I had arranged a free personal training session and it turned out to be the best thing. My personal trainer was absolutely lovely. He helped me to forget that anyone else was in the gym and showed me exercises I would need to try and achieve weight loss. He was really empathetic with my situation and didn't make me feel like I was a criminal for putting on weight and being unfit. I'm sure not all personal trainers are the same but i wanted to share my story as it might be worth a go if you are considering it. I have arranged to see him again in six weeks time for a programme refresh and fitness test (£35). I'm feeling determined to hit that target and show him my progress (even with Christmas approaching).
