    Some people might want to hire a trainer, but the downside is the cost. On top of that, some people might not need one as the can self-discipline themselves to work and learn the moves. Anyway, have any of you hired a trainer and how is it possible to get a good deal on one?

    Actually no, I have not hired a trainer, just as you have said the cost is what keeps me holding myself from this. I am training myself and I will continue doing so because I want to save money for the next holidays, Christmas is coming and my kids want presents, something for my wife and the rest of the family as well, so I must cut money from were I can!

    I have not hired a personal trainer before. Besides the cost, I am not sure if the personal trainer is suitable for me. I am not a person who just blindly follows what "professional" said. I might not agree with the trainer if what he or she recommends. If the trainer insists on me doing that, I might not like it. Hence, I think it's also important to find a personal trainer that we like the way he/she is training us or designed the program for us.

    Every year our school is joining a street dancing competition as one of the highlights in the week long thanksgiving festival which our small city celebrating.

    Our 30 dancers have to be trained for the street dancing. So we have to look for a trainer. We ask our friends for recommendation and they're responsive. They recommended a good trainer and we negotiated his service or talent fee.

    For that public relations we have had with the people usually involved in festival competition in any category, it's easy for us to hire an expert trainer.

    One free alternative to hiring a trainer might be to have a workout buddy. In other words, you train them and they train you. Basically, it's a situation where you're giving the other motivation to work more. Nonetheless, though, you have to make sure you and the buddy are experts in the matter.

    I have not tried hiring a personal trainer but in the past, I've joined our subdivision's zumba group and we needed to share the fees for bringing over an instructor. I guess that would be one way of reducing the cost if you need a trainer. If you can't form a group, you can also try to find a friend, neighbor, or relative who might be interested to hire one and simply divide the fees among you. My gym workout, sadly, is intermittent at best and I've been relying on free weights at home to firm up my muscles and won't need a specialist to guide me.

    I have never hired a trainer but I would recommend that if you are able to afford one then it would probably be beneficial to so do. A competent trainer should be able to help you to get maximum results from your physical activities and he or she should also help to ensure to that you would apply the appropriate techniques to prevent fatigue and injury to yourself, hence, the trainer does have an important role to play in any exercise regime. The problem is that some people may have to forego this service because they may not be able to afford it.

    I grew up playing sports so I never really hired a personal trainer as a adult-and in a way your coaches are like a personal trainer when you do your high school sports. Of course that was a long time ago and it kind of stays with you throughout your life-as far as the discipline and training goes. You stiil should watch your diet as well, if you hire a trainer though, and they can be of great help -but they can only do so much for you, in the short time you are with them?
