Hello and Happy Wednesday! Definitely loving this short work week. Missing my Happy Hunk Day posts? Here are a few old ones to choose from: Alex O’Loughlin and Josh Duhamel. Don’t worry, they’ll be back soon.
I actually completed 4 out of the 5 workouts I was assigned. I was pretty proud of myself considering during the week I had to work 4 days and had 5 Christmas events to attend. I honestly would have done the final workout, but I was TOO SORE!!! While my body can handle cardio, I have not strength trained in quite a while. Did my 1st strength training on Tuesday and the 2nd one Friday. By Friday evening, just standing up and sitting down was painful. Not to mention stairs.
Already this week I have completed my first cardio assignment and my first strength assignment. WOOHOO!!! While I would love quick results, this is a process. I can however feel my muscles becoming stronger each time.
Thinking about online personal training? Here are a few pros and cons:
PRO: Much cheaper than in-person training.
PRO: Customized to fit your needs and goals, not some gym prepared training.
PRO: Assignments given out ahead of time, you plan them in your schedule. Have a schedule change? Easily move them around to fit your needs.
CON: No one to watch your form as you workout. Luckily there are TONS of online videos that show you the proper way to do each exercise.
CON: No one to give encouragement while you are working out.
Making this my motto for 2012:
Today’s talking point: Have you ever tried online personal training?
