I have been going to a trainer about 3 days a week since January. I could tell that it was making a difference but it's not easy to see yourself like everyone else can see you. My trainer has been telling me for a while that my arms were look... Read more

I seem to have a lot to say lately. :) I LOVE working with a trainer! I can't wait to see how I will change in a couple of months. It's just what I needed. I got into a cardio rut and wasn't doing any strength training. I'm not very g... Read more
