I wonder how ugly it's getting over at my local gym as the trainers sit around and argue over who will take on the task of working with me. Despite everything I have said in the past and my own fiercely independent approach to most things, I have signed up for 1 1/2 hours of fitness training. I want to learn what exercises are useful and I want to learn how to do them right.
It will be a challenge for the trainer. I can't possibly understand how the right person for me can be chosen randomly. That person will require a certain temperament. Physical skills will not be enough.
It is a little discouraging not to receive a call in the promised timeframe. I will try to be a good trainee. As long as my list of warnings, limitations, and rules is understood and respected. Oh, this does promise to be interesting. I wonder who will draw the short straw.
