Today was marked with a tinge of sadness. You see it was my last day with my personal trainer. His name is Isaiah. He was recently promoted to become a fitness manager at one of the branches of Fitness First and I'm really happy for him! We've been talking about it for a few weeks now and the day finally came. However, I was hoping against hope that there would be some way for me to continue under him. I've lost over 12 kg with his guidance and pushing and have my utmost trust and faith in him. However, as luck would have it I am now without my trainer because he is going to be stuck at his center which is pretty far away come August 1.
He has promised to find me a replacement but of course I am wary of any new person. Afterall, I know that his methods have worked. I really didn't want a change but now I have no choice. I was considering stopping using a trainer and still am. I don't like change! Fortuately, I still have three more sessions which will be taken over by the new chap. He was supposed to turn up today for a meet and greet but didn't and that immediately made me even more apprehensive. I am supposed to meet him on Wednesday for my first session and well I have nothing to lose st this point! So I'll give him a go!
What I fear most is not being able to gel with the new guy! I've worked real hard to get to this point! I've not exercised this much for ages in fact probably never execised this hard. I go to the gym because I have to not because I enjoy it! I don't want to break the momentum but I don't have an option! I'm really afraid that things might not work out and I'll somehow lose interest. Oh how I wish this had not happened but it has so I have to deal with it somehow and can only hope that the new guy is as good as Isaiah.
After my final session with Isaiah today we shook hands and parted company! I really felt sad! More so for myself and what my future at the gym holds! I am, like i said, happy for him and his promotion! I decided then that I'd write a post about it.
Later, after dinner when I was flipping through the newspapers (Star) and checked my horoscope (Cancer) and saw the prediction - I was dumbstruck. Can you imagine my surprise because this is what it said:
Something ends. This is an ending you were hoping to prevent but now it's up to you to see what you can salvage.
One can only wonder!
