Anyone works with a trainer at their gym? I've never been to a gym and thinking if this helps?

I used to. It definitely helped me get into a routine and make sure I was doing the exercises correctly. In the end, it just got too expensive.

Yes if you pay.. it helps gym trainer, gym owner and everyone who works there.. that's what happens most of the time.. we pay but never go to gym.. but if you really motivated then yes gym really helps and having a trainer certainly will..

For the first 3 months I would highly suggest to have a trainer. They help you in understanding the correct body posture and form for each and every exercise. Post that, you can take a call whether you are comfortable working out without the trainer's guidance and it fits your budget 😊

I used to have one and I loved it. I felt like I learned a lot about what exercises to do and how to do them correctly. Having someone holding me accountable also helps me actually show up and put the work in every time.

Not for me. I don't like being told what to do 😅

Definitely at least in the beginning. they can help you learn what exercises are best and how to do them properly for the best result and with the least likelihood of injury.

I got one in the beginning - it's helpful for building habits + understanding form etc. I didn't end up sticking with it because I felt like I was more confident, but I do an occasional session just to make sure I'm still at a good level

Do people stay more disciplined when there is a trainer helping them out?

I fucking hate the expectation that "men must provide" or "women must act a certain way". That's damaging to a lot of relationships. I love division of labor and working with each other's strengths and weaknesses without so much emphasis on gender roles. I'm a big supporter of utilitarian relationship that strives for the good of the partnership and each party.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks. So how bad does a gap of 1-2 months appear to tech recruiters? Common knowledge is it is a disadvantage to the candidate from a salary negotiation process. I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.

By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.

Who should I trade for? 12 team standard league. Feel like I have too much depth on the bench (Elijah Mitchell, Julio, diante Johnson, devonta smith) to not make a trade.

Got reached out to by a recruiter at McMaster-Carr. Looks concerning from online reviews, but comp package appears to be amazing. Is the horrible culture just for management trainee program? I would not be going into that. How are other groups around the company? Also interested in hear total comp for folks with ~1 year experience if possible. Thanks!
