If you haven’t enjoyed the services of one you may have seen one coaxing a client around a track or gym. This is an amusing and slightly despairing message from a personal trainer to his clients (us). For the rest of this piece follow the links:
“You say you want to overhaul your life, and that this time the New Year’s resolution is going to stick. You want to be fitter, trimmer and happier, and you think all you need to do is turn up for sessions three times a week.
There’s so much more to it. I don’t want to stamp on your dreams, but at some point I must come clean. I can’t fix you. I’m not a qualified therapist and know nothing about corporate finance. I can only help you feel better about yourself. And I’ve told you 100 times that five glasses of wine rather negates the effect of sessions. (Yes, I can smell it on your breath.)”
