I am looking to find a personal trainer who can help me train aroung my work schedule.
I work 10-8 pm Monday-Friday so it is very hard for me to find someone who can work around that. I really need to get in shape as soon as possible due to a wedding I am in come July. I also am struggling with depression and some of it has to do with my weight gain this past year. I live in Wright City,MO and go to Snap Fitness.1
You can find a list of qualified trainers in Wright City here: http://www.ideafit.com/find-personal-trainer/mo/wright-city
I would check out the site that Jason Davis posted for you. You should not have too hard a time finding someone to help you in the mornings.
I know this will help you. Good luck and enjoy the wedding.
According to Snap Fitness's website for your location they have 2 trainers on staff. Have you talked to the club manager at all to see what their availability is? I show the following two:
Alan D Shotwell CPT
Phone: 636 745-8222
Angie Zumwalt CPT
Phone: 636 262-5316
Their staffed hours are the following to try to call and get ahold of someone to ask about availability.
Monday 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Tuesday 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Wednesday 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Thursday 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Friday 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
If they are anything like both of my Snap Fitness locations we are staffed during a particular time but myself and my other trainers work from 5am until about 9pm. Worth giving them a call!
Congratulations on reaching out for help, this is the first step!
There are many options for you and what has been said seems to offer some insight. However, I might also suggest that you consider looking into hiring a lifestyle coach/therapist that specializes in issues pertaining to exercise, weight loss, and depression.
If you are struggling with depression there could be some real benefits to getting into a fitness program, which at times can be as effective as pharmacological interventions here is an article http://www.reuters.com/article/2007/09/19/us-exercise-depression-idUSCOL...
Sorry I am too lazy to expand on that topic, but that was not your question... maybe a blog post.
Anyway, if the depression becomes is prohibitive to starting a program there may be a benefit to hiring someone who specializes in treating depression. There are several ways to find therapists/psychologists/coaches. Psychologytoday.com, goodtherapy.com, and therapytribe.com have databases you can search for a therapist in your area or you can try to set something up online through phone or webcam sessions. There is also a pretty neat site mytherapistmatch.com and mycoachmatch.com that actually attempts to assess your needs and compare them to therapists and coaches to try to make the best fit.
Good luck as you go forward.
