Its becoming quite a trend now for health clubs to make you pay for supervision from the coaches in the gym, for people doing cardio all the time its not a problem, but those doing body building you have to have someone that at least makes sure you are doing the exercise correctly and carrying the weights right!
However today, in order for a captain to help you out you have to pay either per hour or per month or by number of sessions, I wouldn’t mind but then they haven’t reduced the gym fees, and are asking you to pay more for their captains which in some gyms aren’t even half way certified and only have experience. After two or three sessions with the so called personal trainer you’ll find him trying to sell you either a course of steroids or at the least some below the shelf dietary supplements.
I’m the kind of person that likes going to the gym and knowing that I can at least get instructed what exercises to do, catered to what my body needs, no 2 bodies are the same and that’s the same with exercises as well.
Do you think its worth getting a personal trainer? or should I stick to my old routine of getting a list of exercises to do and depending on myself, paying extra is unjustified for me, especially in gyms where the personal trainer will also be probably training a couple of more individuals in the same time. What do you recommend? Are there specific gyms that you have tried and recommend me to try ?
