If you want to raise the bar and challenge yourself, Jae and Scott are your men. I have been training with the two of them alternately for about a year and a half now. These guys push me beyond my limits. After each session, I literally have almost no breath left. I can only breathe a sigh of relief that I survive.
When I decided to work with a personal trainer, my goals are pretty straightforward. I want more muscle tone and definition, gain strength, and maintain a leaner frame. Realistically, I probably will not be able to achieve the desired results if I do it on my own.
Prior to training with Jae for the first time, I remember Jae asking me if I do not mind being pushed. With no hesitation, my response was, No, I do not mind being pushed. Perhaps I should thought about his question a little longer. Day one, Jae did not waste any time. The difficulty level on my exercise was upped by several notches. It was intense with almost no recovery time in between exercises. It felt like a punishment. In the first few minutes of the session with Jae, I was bathing with my own sweat. Fast forward, every time I meet with Jae, I still sometimes get nervous and doubt my capability to finish my exercise routine. At the end of each session, however, I feel I gain instant results. My body does feel a lot tighter, especially my arms and upper body.
Scott, on the other hand, always changes the routine. My exercise routines with him are not predictable, which proves to be effective in my case. My muscles do not get complacent. He would make me do, for example, different variations of push-ups
push-up on a bosu ball, push-up using dumb bells, push-up on one leg, push-up with one arm, push-up with no hands (just kidding!). And those cardio exercises
not my favorite. These are incredibly exhausting! These, however, are the types of exercises that I probably need the most. I would not normally do these on my own. In addition, I should mention that Scott is pretty cool and fun to train with. Although the routines are tough, humor made the session bearable. Lastly, Scott typically spends the last few minutes of the session with stretching, which is nice. It relaxes my muscles after a long intense and vigorous workout
