Along with my 30 day unlimited use pass to the Broomfield, Colorado 24 Hour Fitness club, I received three 50 minute sessions with a personal trainer. I also had unlimited access to their Group X classes and a chance to use their Kids’ Club. Here’s my review.
Personal training sessions
When I had called in to make my first appointment with a personal trainer, the club manager, Dave, scheduled me with Britini for the following Wednesday at 11 a.m.
Upon meeting her, I immediately liked Britini since she was friendly but professional. She lead me over to the trainers’ office area and had me fill out a physical activity and medical questionnaire. Then we discussed my current physical activity, my diet and my goals. I explained that I was trying out 24 Hour Fitness with a complimentary 30-day pass* for a blog review and that I was interested in learning some workout routines that I could do at home, on the road or at another fitness club.
She was glad to hear that I was on Weight Watchers, but recommended that I have an animal based protein (lean meat, eggs or yogurt) at every meal since I was trying to build muscle. She felt that nut or soy based proteins wouldn’t do the trick. Interesting.
Then we went over to a small room so Britini could take my weight, skin fold measurements, and body measurements. She estimated my body fat (in the unhealthy range still, crap!) and gave me a 6 week goal and a 16 week goal:
|Start||6 weeks goal||16 weeks (lifetime goal)|
|31% “acceptable”||23% |
