What Gym Trainers are Desperate for you NOT to find out!

And I should know, I used to be one of them!  (Scroll down for social proof)

So here’s the deal. After  8 long years as a trainer in a chain gym in Long Island and NYC – I have to let this secret out. After this gets out I will be shunned by my former colleagues – but I dont care!

Most people will tell you that when they work with a  (good) professional fitness trainer their results are incredible because of the attention, accountability and extra push that they wouldn’t normally get on their own. Most people will also tell you that in order to get sick results and a lean/toned body – you have to work 5-ish days per week.

ONE MAIN PROBLEM:  1-on-1 training costs a fortune!  Always has, always will. I personally charge $115 an hour if you want to see me 1-on-1.  WHO in their right mind can afford to do that most, preferably ALL days of the week?

Actor David  Duchovny or radio personality Wendy Williams??  They can plunk down about 300-500 a week on their trainers, for sure. In fact, I just saw David today at Equinox on 85th street and Wendy yesterday at the Tribeca Equinox working with their trainers.

I had to laugh a little (in my head) as I did my workout right next to them while pretending not to know who they were.

Wait, celebrities aside for a minute and back to you, the real woman who is NOT making a mill a year.  Here is the thing that these Trainers are despertate to keep a secret:  GROUP TRAINING is about $20 an hour! that’s 80% cheaper than 1-0n1 training! AND you get two times the results.  Literally.

If you need to pay a trainer 100 an hour to count to 12 while you sit on a leg press for an hour, then so be it.  I will make you a better offer than that. I can send my baby cousin to the gym with you to count to 12 (he just learned), and he wont even charge you.

BETTER THAN THAT,  you can try a group fitness program: boot camp or running camp  , kickboxing  or even an aerobics class for a fraction of the money you would otherwise spend on a trainer AND get double the resutls. Why double? Well, simply because you will be able to actually workout with you trainer  3 to 5 times a week! Duh!

Don’t think it would work?  Fine. Don’t take my word for it. Watch these:
