Personal Trainer

Today I worked out with a personal trainer for the first time. I thought it would be weird or creepy, but I actually had fun. I just signed up for the Bally’s in Bellevue and they give you a free session with a personal trainer. My guy was named Jared. He had me do a few tests and then went through a workout, showing me a bunch of good core exercises as well as a power lift I hadn’t tried before. I have a higher body fat percentage than I thought I did though- I am currently at 15.5% (215 lbs at 6’6”). That is in the “Fitness” category just bordering on “Athlete”. The chart is below:

My goal is to reach 8% bodyfat by August 1, 2009, though I will be happy with 10%.‚  Ultimately, I think I would like to be at 6% bodyfat… that will be hard to reach and maintain, but I can do it.

  1. I’m at 19% myself, trying to hit 10 or 11% by July 1. I’ll race you to the biggest percentage loss!

  2. Allright, I’ll try my best. But I’m sort of thinking I’ll lose, just because I’ve yet to be able to quit drinking. But it’s to my advantage, I think, that I currently have the higher body-fat percentage (I think it will melt off me easier than if I were at 15.5%, like you.

  3. Drinking is my Achilles heel. I eat fairly healthy and do quite a bit of exercise, but instead of a sweet tooth I have an alchy tooth. Speaking of alchy tooth, you should join me at my bbq Saturday. I’ll forward you the invite.
