"If you are serious about training you can finance your training. If you can't "afford it" than you arent making it a priority"
WOW, sounds like the personal trainer has spoken.
Normally if someone can't afford to pay for a service, it has nothing to do with making it a priority, that is the most ignorant statement I've read to date. How about real life priorities such as paying a mortgage, insurance, utilities, putting food on the table for your family?
How about not over paying for a personal trainer who has only taken a short 3 day course to obtain their certification?
Here is my advice, can't afford a personal trainer, take the course yourself, learn then find a workout buddy for motivation.
