Personal Trainer

I have been looking around for a personal trainer these few days. At first, I thought I must first get a gym member before I can engage a personal trainer, but then it turned out it is not the case. There are quite a lot of freelance personal trainers available for hire, and the training location can be anywhere, from SSC clubfit gyms to condo gym, even to your own home.

The charge for personal trainer also varies. The lowest can be as low as around S$38 per session (I think one session is 1 hour), to as high as more than S$100 per session. The services provided are similar but still varies.

After searching for a while, the high price really turns me away. Ok, for now, I will train on my own. As usual, I must first come up with a plan. Whatever you do, you must have a plan :) I will give myself 1.5 - 2 months to try it out on my own. After that, if I don't see any improvement, then I will try to engage a personal trainer.

The trainer I am thinking to engage is from this site:

or this site:

If you have any experience with the above two, please share your experiences. Better, if you have a good personal trainer to recommend, please let me know. Thank you!

Btw, I in fact called up Fitness First at AMK Hub, enquirying for their membership fee. Their sales claimed they would only present to their potential customers face-to-face in their premises. Sounds very much like those time-sharing sales tactics. Then later I walked past AMK hub, and saw there is a booth on B1 promoting their membership. The sales didn't seem to be too interested in engaging the attention of anyone, just crowded around and chatted with each other. They lost the business from me. Probably they don't bother anyway. Bad impression.
