Recommendations on a personal trainer?
Needs to focus on weight loss and fitness. Knows how to work with a middle aged person. Someone that doesn't just go through the motions, but can be pushy and effective.
- Salesforce / EngragnarrYou might want to talk to a dietitian first about the weight loss. Working out can only do so much, changing your diet is the real key

Truth is that personal trainers are apathetic scum that train you incorrectly and see you as a cash cow. See the truth about getting results is that you need to put yourself through a lot of pain both physically and mentally. Trainers can't afford to do that or else they might face potential lawsuits if you get injured. So they make you do workouts that don't benefit you. Also 60% of results come from dieting properly, which they don't mention.
Unless you are really committed don't work out. Most people quit, so it's time wasted. You're better off setting aside time to just walk or run 1 hr a day. Don't forget to diet.
- Personally, prefer not to use personal trainers considering their cost but would definitely consider for motivation though!
