How To Get Your Own Free Personal Trainer

Anyone with a gym membership, or who at least spends some time in such places, knows that nearly every gym provides a "personal trainer" to design a fitness program for you. This can be a one-time meeting, usually as a courtesy of the gym, or you can pay for the privilege of having your own private coach.

Before I married, I tried this out. It was a lot of work, and I discovered that I could probably have lost the same 5 lbs on my own without the coaching had I just followed the program he outlined for me.

After that, paying for a personal trainer was decidedly not in my budget--stepchildren and new baby were the new priorities.

However, the gym at which I currently wage Pool Wars does have a personal trainer program.

And I've discovered through my almost-daily attendance that, given the right circumstances, a member can get it for free. The secret? Be female, be blonde and be beautiful.

I don't begrudge her the attention--really! I just find myself trying not to fall off the stairmaster because I'm laughing at the site of BOTH trainers hovering over the Blonde Buxom Beauty as she is spread-eagled on one of our new machines, while two other male members of the gym also crowd in to offer their advice. Apparently the site of a slightly sweaty, disheveled Dolly-Parton-esque type lying on her back, breathing heavily, arms akimbo as she tried to push the weight bar of the machine up, caused a rush of male chivalry to "help" her......

Needless to say, most of the rest of our female membership (40+ and paunchy) needs to pay for this kind of "help."

Actively ogling and helping aren't always the same.

Hence my laughter---these guys were falling over each other to "help" but mostly getting in the way.....

Doesn't that mean that those men were drawn to a woman who wasn't dressed up and (most likely) not wearing make-up?

See, they're not shallow at all!

Mohamed: you would be surprised; she wasn't as "dressed up" as some, but few western women leave the home without makeup, even to go to the gym. I've been in gyms where the workout clothes are designer fashion statements (not MY clothes--I always wear frumpy stuff).

Baila: don't feel alone--me, neither and I could definitely use free "training."
