Workout #7: Work out with a Trainer (for about $5!)

There's no doubt that working out with a trainer is crazy hard but definitely effective! All the celebrities have one and look at how they look! However, a trainer, on average, charges $60 to $70 for a one hour session. If you were to train only twice a week all year, you could end up running up a bill of between $6240 and $7280. Most of us just don't have that money lying around. There are ways now a days to work out with a trainer without breaking the bank.

One way is the Verizon FIOS gift of OnDemand. OnDemand has a category called Health and Home. In this category, there is another category called ExerciseTV. They change workouts monthy. There's a huge variety of workouts, too, ranging from Bootcamp to Latin Dance to Yoga. There's an assortment of trainers for each type. Find one you like and look for most workouts he or she has done. My personal favorite is Viveca Jensen, who teaches Piloxing, a blend of boxing, pilates, and ballet. She is so upbeat and she talks through the working, making me forget how hard her workouts actually are.

Speaking of Viveca Jensen, I've found another way to train "with" her. In the Fitness Special of Seventeen magazine, one of her workouts is in it as she is known to be very big with celebrities, like Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale. This issue includes not only Piloxing, but also yoga, dance, and pilates are also workouts that are on pages of this issue. The issue includes a calendar, dictating what days to do which exercise. If you don't like this issue, there is a workout in each and every issue of Seventeen. Don't like Seventeen? Use another magazine like Health or Self. Working out with a magazine is a great way to add variety to your routine because you could try something might never have thought of doing before.
