As for ATL, I thought it was supposed to be warm there. I had a layover there on my way out to CA this past weekend and it was no warmer there than in Louisville. What gives bro? I'm taking the Hot-lanta moniker away!
Fluke weather....now going to be 60 and sunny this weekend...time to put some air in the mountain bike tires.
Funny...just got ANOTHER mailing yesterday for the "Ultimate Sales Closing Program for Personal Trainers".
IMO, trainers should be coaches who help people workout on their own with exercise movement teaching and periodic reviews of diet/workouts/progress....or run group programs (which are generally more affordable and get people better results) if they need the motivation. The rep counting is just silly.....or sad that people would shell out big money for that. Much like a fad diet...those results never last as they become 100% dependent on a trainer and never adopt a lifestyle change. All the rep counting trainers for the most part burn out after a while, and then just sit there on their cell phone checking their myspace account or something.
