I use both a personal trainer and a massage therapist. I have done this for over 15 years and absolutely believe in it. When getting a personal trainer I suggest hiring one that can mentor you and bring your game to the next level. I see it as an investment in myself. I have also found that many of my clients view it as a positive factor. I often tell them that it helps me to better understand their position in our relationship. Todd Durkin and Alwyn Cosgrove are big advocates of fitness professionals having their own personal trainer.
