    I haven't joined the gym yet cos it's too expensive - and while I MIGHT (when I finally join the gym) see a trainer, it certainly won't be a regular thing. I can't afford to pay heaps of money for someone to make me angry (I get angry when I exercise).

    DVDs are better for that - they don't complain or get offended when I swear at them and call them really nasty names.

    (Plus, people that love exercise weird me out... lol...).

    I used to have one and after a few months I realised the guy was a bit too obsessive. He was trying to convince me that I needed to go for 2 runs each day to burn excess fat (I was a size 8-10 at the time). He also spent far too much time talking about himself and his marriage issues. He put me off PT's and now I can't justify spending this $$$ when I could just do it myself. Plus he smelt a little funny

    Because I don't need one I have a good figure and a body that bounces back with minimal effort... yes I'm very blessed .... if I didn't though I would spend whatever money required to get it back.

    I prefer doing my own thing (group classes and weights) and I don't like to pay extra for something I feel I can do ok on my own. I treat the gym as "me" time so I prefer not to be accountable to someone or have to chat if I'm not in the mood. I'm good at motivating myself.

    I have used them in the past for particular events though like a dancing competition ("I need to be strong and flexible"), my wedding ("I want arms like Michelle Obama") and now I've had a couple for pregnancy ("I want to be safe but stay fit"). I have never seen them regularly, only for 2 or 3 sessions to get a program together and some technique tips and then I'm on my own.
