I noticed that I was comfortable with the elliptical, but I stopped making gains in my weight loss. I had reached a plateau and I was also feeling bored. My work-out buddy convinced me that I could enhance my performance by having a personal trainer. Initially, I felt uncomfortable because I am highly independent. Despite the reservations, I took the plunge!
My wonderful personal trainer taught me how to use exercise equipment including bosu ball, kettle bells and light weights. The routine was challenging and invigorating. Just when I thought I could not exert another muscle, he coached me to go beyond what I thought was my limit. For Example, the trainer instructed me to flip a heavy tire and perform jumping jacks at each repetition. I did not think I could do it, but I did! The advantage of using a trainer is you develop correct technique and you get the push you deserve!
