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?

Hey everyone, new to the big 4 (only about 3 months) and I think I’ve finally got my bearings at the company. Anyone have any tips on how to network internally for being rolled onto a team? Like when I reach out to someone for a coffee chat, what do I say/ do? Ask about how they got into that role? Ask for internal work? Any advice is appreciated!


PSA: Don't let fishbowl drive your perception of your company and your work. People like to whine and complain in all fields. What you hear here are very much exceptions to the overall experience or people who just need an outlet to blow off steam. We're all (for the most part) incredibly blessed. Thanks for listening to my TED Talk. Now go kick some ass P.s. I thought this was LinkedIn.

I got selected for interview stage at a FAANG... Even before interviewing, the recruiter is asking for my comp expectations. I dont want to throw out numbers and ranges, but looking for advice here on how do i structure my response to let them know i would like to have a competitive salary as per industry standards (i know for a fact that their base salaries are 30 to 40% more than what i make now ($137k). The reason i dont want to let them know what i make now is so that they dont lowball me


May have been asked a bunch of times - how are you taking care of your mental health while being secluded? I really miss my friends and family but recognize that being careful is necessary right now
