I always thought a personal trainer would be much too expensive, but after discussing the different options with a trainer at Healthworks, it might be a more affordable investment than I thought! Here are a few of the more affordable options that we discussed:

Partner Training: Train with a friend for a cheaper rate. Pro: You and your training buddy can be super competitive with one another during your sessions and constantly challenge each other.

Express Training: Instead of paying for a 60-minute session, only pay for a 30-minute one. Typically, a 30-minute session includes a high-intensity, circuit training workout. When I did an Express session with a trainer, I was huffing and puffing and dripping with sweat by the end. Starting my week off with a workout like that is an awesome motivator for the rest of the week!

Focus Training: Focus Training at Healthworks is a series of training programs that take place in small groups and have a specific format, schedule, and focus. Included in Focus Training is BURN, Gravity, and Pilates Reformer groups.

Trainer Check-ins: Instead of twice-weekly or weekly meetings with a trainer, only book a few sessions, and then ask the trainer to give you “homework” workouts to do on your own. Check-in with your trainer when you feel like you need a new routine or a boost of motivation.
