Personal Trainer Needed

Postby kitkat2006 » Tue, 06 Jun 2006 1:57 pm

Hi there, I'm looking for a new Personal Trainer as I'm getting a bit bored with my current one.

Basically I want someone who knows their stuff inside out and understands how to challenge yet make my workouts enjoyable. Not as easy as it sounds!

I loathe those trainers attached to gyms as most of them are pretty average in terms of their passion for what they do. I do go to a gym but am happy to do my own thing there.

So I'm looking for someone to come to my gym 1 to 2 mornings per week (I live in Central) and then run with me 1 morning a week.

Let me know if anyone can recommend a good trainer or is a good trainer.

Hi Kat,

If you want a challenging workout, you should try lactic-acid training. ;-)

My clients dread these type of workouts the most! But of course, they are very effective in increasing fitness level and improve body composition.

You can learn more on my 'body transformation systems' at: www.physiquemakeover.com

Cheers!

PS- For a basic fat burning workout, check out a recent article that I wrote for Healthy Times magazine (Jun/Jul 06 issue). It's called 'The Fat Furnace Program'.

Sounds like your a pussy! In 35 years of training, I've never enjoyed myself, I mean how can you call it enjoyment, if you wish to improve your total fitness, then pain barriers have to be reached.

Challenge yourself for gods sake, workouts are not supposed to be enjoyable, were do you get that idea from! If your not putting in 75% to 85% effort, with no time for a gossip, then your not training, your socialising.

No pain no gain full stop!!!

I totally disagree with you KSL. Sure there's times when it's tough and you don't want to keep going but I love sport and exercise.

I do a variety of things to keep fit from running to gym to golf to team sports and like all things I want a change of scenery or something new.

Why is this any different to a career change or scenery change ?? If you become complacent or don't ask yourself if there's anything / anyone better out there are you doing the best you can for yourself.

I've found 2 really good potential trainers here via PM messages - both with great programmes and new approaches to training. My current trainer is an ex-rugby player who just goes hard. These new guys offer me something new to challenge myself with.

I've had 3 different golf pro's - each has been good and really challenged my game. Sum total is my game has improved out of sight.

I guess you have been the same job, same neighbourhood and doing the same workout for 35 years?? Sorry not my way of thinking....

Quite the opposite my dear friend, however there is a level of fitness one wishes to attain, depending on age, goals, and exercise. To improve your game, doesn't actually come into the same category of fitness as a rugby player, if you get my point.

My apologies for the sarcastic pussy remark, my point of outburst stems from the hard physical training in the military, whereby everyone is a pussy until they have completed the brutal sarcastic environment, which is why, i have the mind over matter attitude.

Fitness and endurance of a marathon run, or orienteering, will of course include some pretty strong will power, just to complete the course,

However a round of golf is slighty different, i'm afraid, and the actual physical fitness required, would not be so demanding, it is quite obvious to see the different needs, required for individual sports and therfore it is important to let people know, what you actually want to achieve.

You mustn't make wild silly guesses about anothers life, based on a sarcastic remark, it just makes you look more silly.

With regards to your quote! You couldn't be more further away from the trueth!

KSL - while I appreciate your comments all I'm asking for is a trainer - not advice. I'm ok on that front and that's why I pay someone for advice and coaching.

Hi Kitkat,

If you are still looking for a trainer, I know someone who is ACSM-certified, well-versed in sport science and is creative in his exercise programing.

Personal training seems to be a very competitive. Luckily, I am just doing it on a part time basis.

Hi Kitkat,

was wondering if too late to reply to you. For my case, i too believe in making your training for enjoyable. Life is about enjoying and living to the fullest.

Basically to me, if "time" is not a great factor. Enjoy the training.

Actually what you need not a trainer but some exercise partner or gym buddy who have the same passion.

Cheers
riz

I'm a personal trainer from Vancouver Canada

Postby Vancouverite » Wed, 20 Sep 2006 12:29 pm

Hi Kitkat,

You know that used to be my nick- name! Are you still looking for a new trainer? I'm a personal trainer with 10 years experience. I have run my own business in Vancouver, Canada for the last four years and now I've started my business here. If you haven't found a trainer yet let me know and we could go over a possible program to get you over the plateau and bordom that you are experiencing. I am confident that you would not get bored working with me and I will always challenge you! I have an ad in Expat Living for September and you can also look at my website for more information. www.trainerforce.com/kim_ekblad
