Alternative to Personal Training

13901446_10154590658493641_8988812414747919922_n.jpgI’ve been working out for 20 years or more and always thought I knew what I was doing.   I didn’t need any help.  Okay, well that may have been true in my 20’s but now in my 40’s I have hit a plateau.  Putting weight on is very easy. Keeping it off, not so much.  Before, I could spend 30 minutes on a treadmill and the weight would stay off.   Now, 40 minutes on the treadmill and some strength exercises for 20-30 minutes a few times a week and I don’t see any results.  

I was afraid to hire a personal trainer.  The cost was always something I was afraid to commit to and it was always a little intimidating to work one-on-one with a trainer who would be pushing me to my limit.  But I soon realized I had to do something.  I had become one of those people who spent their 45-60 minutes in the gym, went right to the treadmill for 30 minutes then lifted some weights.  Nothing new and I was wondering why I wasn’t seeing any results.  I felt like I was wasting 60 minutes of my day. 

THEN CAME TRIBE.  All I can say is hallelujah.  Tribe Team Training is the answer to my prayers.   I took Tribe Life at White Marsh and WOW.  Tribe Life is a 50-minute functional training group workout.  It is something different every workout.  It really gave me what I needed to jump off my plateau.   I am doing exercises I never imagined I could do and all for a fraction of the cost of one-on-one personal training.

Why do I love Tribe?  As I said, it is a fraction of the cost of one-on-one training but I am still getting the guidance and motivation I need as I would with a trainer.  I love the group setting because it pushes me to do more just when I think I can’t.  I don’t want to let my team down. Plus (a little selfish), when I look around and see others doing it, I think, “She’s doing it, I can do it too.”  And WOW what an amazing work out.  I would tell anyone they should definitely try Tribe.  Merritt is launching Tribe Team Training at White Marsh and Canton on September 7th and you can try a week of Tribe absolutely free September 12-18.  

I’m signing up for sure!!!
