Finding a trainer...

In so many areas of life, when we are not sure how to do something, we will find an expert to help us out. Not sure how to fix the washing machine? Call a repairman. Don't know how to decorate a cake? Buy a book. Want to learn to play the piano? Take piano lessons. So, when the time comes to embark on a new exercise program, it would make sense to hire a personal trainer. I have goals and I want someone who can set me up on the road to achieve them.

I am excited because I think I found the perfect company to go through. I once did a class with the owner of the company and it was tough. I mean, we're talking Jillian on the Biggest Loser tough. So, when my husband suggested that if I wanted a trainer, to try her company, it made perfect sense. I've been learning about it through email and just the emails have got me excited. Just the idea of having a trainer has me pumped and ready to hit the track. So much so, that I am even dreaming about exercise now. How scary is that.

So, although I know a lot about running, and a lot about exercise, I know there are still many things that I could learn. And, because of that, I will let an expert set me up on the road to success. That way, in six months or a year, when I'm looking back on this post, with a faster running time in my arsenal, and my first set of goals achieved, I will know that I made the right decision.
