Education
I train hard and ask my clients to please let me know when they need a break. I will not just walk around the gym and watch you work out. Why would you want to hire somebody who only gives you what you can get by yourself? I am always changing the workouts up and never doing the same thing twice!

The old fashion bench press and bicep curl are great for those that love the classics but there are a dozen new ways to get some resistance training. Go to your local gym and engage in a functional training class where they employ resistance bands. There are resistance band workouts you can do at home with the aid of a DVD or personal trainer. One of my personal favorites is the use of Kettlebells which can be found on a website called dragondoor.com.

Kettlebells take up very little space and can be used to do dozens of different workout that will tax your aerobic capacity and offer resistance training at the same time. Don’t get stuck in the old fashion “3 sets of 10 reps” rut. Try some of the classic lifts with barbells or dumbbells but do it as part of a circuit training routine. Do this with friends to make it challenging or competitive. 

Bottom line is that this type of training is very enjoyable and extremely beneficial so if you hold some limiting beliefs then do some open minded exploration on the topic and find an alternative you find engaging. 

One of my personal favorites is a circuit that employs 30 seconds of exercise followed by a 15 second rest as you move to the next station. Don’t count reps, just go for 30 seconds.
