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

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary.

Is studying for (and hopefully passing) the CFA a good alternative to an MBA for career advancement? Background: Currently in M&A advisory. Not looking to move into research or portfolio management, just seeking to add an "advanced degree". I would love to go back to school, but cost and my location - not near any major schools - have kept me from applying. I have considered Kellogg's eMBA in Miami. #cfa #mba


Genuine question and attempt to understand: for those of you who are upset or unhappy about more robust efforts at diversity and inclusivity, can you explain why these efforts upset you? Or worry you?


Just a shout-out to all the LGBTQ+ consultants who are not in heteronormative relationships. Every time I read threads here wherein folks assume that someone posting about a wife or girlfriend is a man, or someone with a husband is a woman, I feel invisible. This also happens to me at work - colleagues and clients incorrectly assume the gender of my spouse. Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!


Does advisory really not have ratings? Friend's counselor just told her they are either "on track" or "off track". If yes, how is a raise determined?!?
