Fitness can be a bit of a cult. It’s very easy to drink the fitness coolade.
“Ah, I’ve just spent £200 on a detox. New year, new me!”
Honestly, I don’t like fitness as an industry. I like being fit, which enables me to get more done and have more energy and I believe we are born to move, and keep moving till we meet our maker. But I don’t’ think fitness is the be all and end all.
Don’t get me wrong, as a personal trainer I think fitness is a great way for people to celebrate small victories, to work on themselves with reckless disregard to everyone else and to develop a habit of taking care of their physical and mental well-being.
But when you have to spend stupid amount of money to look a certain way. To buy this particular piece of ludicrously expensive equpment. Work out like this or like that . It just puts a lot of people off, including myself. It’s makes people say “fitness isn’t for me!”
I believe fitness is for everyone. Maybe health is a better word. I think health is for everyone.
Is Personal Training Elitist?
Is personal training too expensive? I don’t know. It definitely feels like that sometimes. It can feel a little elitist. I think that is particularly true in Bath. Gym memberships start from about £40 a month, and personal training starting from about £40/ hr.
I’ve been striving to make fitness more accessible.
I believe that personal training is great because you get find your brand of fitness, if you get the right trainer! But it shouldn’t need to cost an arm and leg. If you ever sat down with a personal trainer or even worse, a gym sales rep, you’ll understand. “Well if you gave a damn about your body, you’d give me stupid amounts of money.”
But it’s not really a hard decision between eating that day and buying a gym membership.
