Personal Trainer No Show - Need Workout Routine Tips
(Salt Lake City)
Gym day 1 - talk about loss of motivation, my trainer failed to show and I was left to my own devices. My start time was 6am, I asked for a backup trainer, they simply said none were available.
Fortunately, I did some analytics on your site and was semi prepared. I did 25 min of cardio then dove into a weight routine - completed day 1. I received a call later in the day apologizing, they asked a few questions. It was clear to me then, the trainer and I have different goals. I want stress relief, they want to build muscle.
So, my question is this - I've dedicated 45 minutes of my valuable time to work out with one MAIN purpose; clear my head. It's clear to me I need a routine, something I can follow, but I need it to be simple - I don't need charts, tales, schedules or anything that will complicate my life any more than it already is. I want to show up, know where to go and get it done. What do you recommend?
Also, it would be nice to be able to figure out how the whole heart rate thing works. My target heart rate per the display said 152 for 80% - I hit 190 and decided to stop before I was carted off on a stretcher.
