Although admittedly a bit on the tacky side, I chose the ever cliché weight loss/muscle gain New Year’s resolution this time through. However, this year I really wanted to success, I didn’t want to be just another schmuck who made a promise to themselves that got quickly tossed out the window for a Big Mac and large fry. This time around I decided in order to keep myself on track I would benefit from someone who has an expertise in this sort of thing. So, I decided to hire a personal trainer Newcastle.

I was admittedly a bit skeptical and dare I say questioning of the quality persona that personal trainers have to offer (I had a friend in college who was a professional trainer and professional douchebag). So I hired one and she ended up being fantastic. I didn’t feel pressured or judged at any point and she worked with me to make sure I was properly doing the exercises. After following her instruction for six months I had lost a total of 30 lbs of fat and tacked on about as much in lean muscle. Definitely something to look into if you’re serious about getting fit but perhaps lack the necessary motivation.
