For people who think having a personal trainer is a luxury, an indulgence akin to buying expensive clothes or taking extravagant trips, my response is clear: a trainer is an investment in your health, a means to keep you on a path to wellness and strength. And, far from being a costly endeavor, there are many trainers who charge reasonable rates and work with solidly middle class clients. Which is to say, hiring a trainer is within reach for tens of thousands of people in New York City alone.
As the fitness experts on NeighborhoodTrainers can attest, there is a diverse selection of professionals who can work with prospective clients without breaking the bank. This fact, that having a trainer is a reality for people of various interests, changes the very way we think about health and exercise. Hence the creation of this site, and the investment we can all make the undertaking we should all begin for the betterment of ourselves.
So yes, having a personal trainer is both practical and wise. The benefits, both in the short- and long-term, are too great to ignore. We should seize this invitation to enjoy the advantages of improved conditioning and versatility.
