He’s Back!

My old trainer is back! We had our first session on Saturday afternoon. Boy did I wish I was having my afternoon siesta at that time but instead I was hard at work burning calories. Why at such an odd hour? Well due to his commitments and responsibilities after his promotion to a fitness manager he is really strapped for time and restricted in his movement from his center in Subang to my center in PJ.

I made it clear to him that I wanted him to be sure that he could take on the added responsibility…hey I’m high maintenance okay! LOL because I didn’t want him to quit on me halfway…I’ve had enough of that! He said he could! However, it was the timing and location that was a problem now. We reached a compromise and we’ll split the traveling time, one time in PJ (where I live) and one time in Subang (where he’s based). More so because I prefer to train in the morning and that can only be done in Subang, in PJ he can only come in the late afternoon. Yeah, it’s a little complicated but the bottom line is I have no more excuses not to succeed.

In my time with the trainer who just left I did not lose any weight but I did gain 9 kilos of muscle mass and lost the equivalent fat mass. So you could that that was good. You see that’s another thing that’s different…we never had a weigh in session like before although I kept asking, he kept postponing.

His main flaw was not addressing my main flaw. I needed to be checked on and that’s why I needed a trainer…to monitor my progress not only at the gym but to remind me frequently, to motivate me. Hell if I could have motivated myself I wouldn’t be in this positioning the first place and certainly wouldn’t need a personal trainer, now would I?

The irony is that this guy who left actually trained my favorite trainer. He taught him how to follow up with clients and all. I guess that he just was not focused anymore on “work” but more focused on his new business venture. I hold no grudges but instead wish him well and success in his endeavor.

Now, back to basics!
