Ten-hut!

If you want an intense, almost militaristic motivator when you work out, then personal training may be for you.

A friend who goes to Boot Camp sessions at the Wildcat Recreation Center recently  sold me on joining personal training.

I tried CrossFit last year and injured myself lifting weights because I wasn’t getting enough personal attention and direction on my form. I have steered clear of training groups ever since.

However, as I get more psyched about my half-marathon coming up, I am looking for anything that will assist me with my best performance in October.

There is no doubt that running is awesome for you, but strength training and having a coach makes for a well-rounded exercise routine.

Also, I give up much less easily if I have someone pushing me to go harder.Session Pricing

All that is well and good, but let’s talk about how much training costs.

Well, it turns out that personal training at the WREC doesn’t really have to break the bank.

Individual sessions are slightly expensive. But you can get five weeks worth of classes such as Boot Camp or Reformer, a core training class, for $35.

Having two days a week designated for strength training is a motivator. You have to work it into your schedule beca

use you’re paying for it.

Sign me up, please.
