I ached for two days after my first personal trainer session. Really, really ached. I could barely get in and out of the car until Friday night. Arms, stomach, chest, legs – everything was sore. I wondered just what I’d got myself in for, if it was worth it.
Today I think I found out it may be.
I’ve just had my second session with my personal trainer and I feel fantastic after it. I can walk and lift things, two things I struggled with after session one. I could even chat with Adam as we went through each of the Machines Of Evil. It seems the first session was about pushing me beyond what I could do just to see what my body was capable of (or not, more to the point for me).
He’s now started work on getting me to the stage where I can start proper exercise. Or, to quote Adam, “I’m getting you to the point where I can begin to hurt you.”.
I feel so much better after this session (well, until I wake tomorrow morning) knowing that I’m going to be able to cope a lot better than I thought I would. It’s a good thing, I think I’ll be sticking with it.
