Diet and Personal Trainers

Be sure to read to the very bottom of the article for a tip that will save you HUNDREDS of dollars!

Regardless of where you turn, you're likely to spot some recent coverage of weight loss and dieting. It's virtually inevitable. Click on the television and view the latest infomercial break-through hoopla. I'm sure some pseudo intellectual MD will step out and attempt to sell you a questionable supplement. Most likely it's guaranteed to get those irksome excess pounds off in mere days. Or, flip open that magazine next to you in the check-out isle and scan the newest diet article for middle-aged women. Maybe it has something valid to offer and maybe not. It's often difficult to tell with all the data floating around.

Fitness nuts and exercise gurus will often offer varying information. While it's a cinch to read the latest diet article, how do you know what program is right for you? Well, you may want to look for the individual/specialist who isn't trying to pitch you something. Because let's face it; you can read diet articles and watch infomercials until the sun goes down, but simply listening and reading isn't going to get the job done. Consider hiring a qualified personal trainer. I know, I know -- some charge an arm and a leg, but you don't have to go to the most exclusive professionals in the business. What about the personal trainers at your local YMCA? From what I've seen, they generally know just as much as the other trainers at any of the chain membership gyms. Buy a month of sessions with them in order to get on the right track. They can talk to you about diet, and get you started with the ideal fitness program to suit your weak areas that need improvement. This is the route my girlfriend took and she's extremely glad she did at this point. The woman who trained her passed on the knowledge my girlfriend needed to proceed accordingly on her own. Now she doesn't sit around flipping through exercise magazines and reading the latest diet article for tips on weight loss. She goes about her life and does what she needs to do to stay healthy and fit.


It's sad, but you can't always trust a published fitness or diet article. While we might assume these are written by professionals, it's not always the case. Often articles are crafted to sell gimmicks and/or new products. Furthermore, they don't work well for everyone who reads them. Try a personal trainer and learn the process first-hand.



Here's a tip from Mike that will save you HUNDREDS of dollars if you take advantage of it. The absolute best time of the year to sign up at a gym or personal trainer is in December. Why? Because January is their busiest time with the influx of New Year's Resolutioners, and in December they want to make a deal. When I signed up with my trainer, I received over 100 sessions for the price of 20 regular-priced sessions, and the gym membership was 60% off.
