Hi Mamas!

 

I am desperate to lose some weight and gain some muscle and strengthen my core.  One of the options I have nearby is a Fitness Together personal training center.

 

Has anyone done this?  Did you feel like it was worth the money?  I haven't called yet, but anticipate the cost to be high. 

 

I like the idea that I would have to schedule appointments because I'd be less likely to skip out on them, unlike going to the gym which  I'm sure I would skip if I was tired or if it was too cold out :)

 

Thanks!

I bought a Groupon with Fitness Together a few weeks ago.  Have gone 3 times (have 6 sessions through the groupons).  I would say that it's a great way to have an appointment for fitness and yes, it works.  But when the guy quoted me the prices for continuing sans groupon, I about fell out of my chair.  It was $69-89 per session depending on how many you buy at a time.  They want you to come 3 times a week but I'm guessing they'd deal with twice a week.  There is no way I can afford $500-1000 a month on personal training.  

 

If I were wealthy enough to afford it, it would be worth it.
