Objections to training:
Objections: I’m not in shape enough to do those types of workouts with a personal trainer.
Reality: This translates to “I have to get in shape before I get into shape.” Don’t make this mistake. It is better to work hard and get results at the beginning than to see minimal, if any results for the first few months. Time is important, so don’t waste it! Objections to Training
Why I haven’t started using a Personal Trainer:
Objection: Money: I can’t afford to use a personal trainer.
Reality: Think about how much money you spend on fast food, candy, soda, alcohol, coffee, or tobacco products. If we just look at one, say fast food, and assume that maybe you spend at least $5 a day on either fast food or snacks each day. If that is only during the standard work week (5 days), then that is $25 a week, $100 a month, and $1300 a year (52 weeks). That doesn’t include money you may spend on going out to a “nice” dinner or a movie. How much is your body worth to you? If it’s weight loss you are trying to achieve, won’t you give up fast food, candy, and soda anyway?
Objection: Time: I don’t have enough time to work with a personal trainer.
Reality: We have trainers available early mornings and late nights. If you work with a personal trainer, then you will be performing high-[removed]intensity, functional training workouts that only take 30-[removed]60min to complete, 1-[removed]2 times a week. That adds up to only 1-[removed]2 hours total per week. Can you find 1-[removed]2 hours a week out of 168 hours available to get the results you want?
Objection: The workouts look too hard.
Reality: They are hard! If it were easy, everyone would be in shape! Don’t give up before you give yourself a chance at success.
Objections: My husband/wife/significant other doesn’t want me to do it.
Reality: If your significant other objects to you using a personal trainer it may only be because he/she doesn’t see the value in it. Invite him/her in to do a first-[removed]workout with a personal trainer so that he/she can see the value and realize how important your fitness goals are to you. You can even train as a couple, spending time together and getting in shape!
