    I guess I should briefly tell my condition..

    Am overweight, some people may even think I'm obesity.
    I consider myself is kinda healthy, don't get sick easily, don't have high blood pressure and diabetes yet.
    Would love to have a complete change of my lifestyle.
    I definitely need someone to push and encourage me.. Because I'm a quitter.

    For how many sessions per week/month, to be honest, I have no idea.
    I would just follow his/her instructions to achieve my goal.

    edit: can't seem to link to Facebook but search for SportiFit (address is 13/F, 9 Li Yuen Street East)

    The trainers who use it for clients pay around $200 a session, and then charge their rates on top of that. Several of the ex-UP trainers are in there. Pop up and ask at the desk and they can put you in touch with someone who can help you.

    I have seen some abysmal PT in here though, but ask for Benny and you won't go wrong.
    Thank you~

    If your goal is weight loss it can be accomplished only by a caloric deficit. Two ways to have a caloric deficit:
    1. Eat less
    2. Exercise more

    Best to do both.

    ClassCruiser
    GuavaPass

    They all have a few gyms that will offer personal training. Just sign up and see what you like. For some the mix of cardio and strength from Thai boxing training is great, others need a bootcamp, others need a gym.

    I quite like Circuit 25. Early morning but a nice mix of Cardio and strength

    I don't eat much, but I'm not gonna lie I have a healthy diet.
    Working on my diet now, eating more natural food instead of processed food..

    Get yourself a weareable with heart rate monitor and just set yourself some goals such as of so many hours of cardio per week, average steps per day.



    Paying someone to encourage you is great but if you have goals and a way of measuring them that makes sense to you it can also be a big incentive. If you want to change your lifestyle you should probably measure it.

    Or depends on how many times does the PT suggest
    What will that accomplish? Seems like throwing money away. You should train 3-4 times a week, or at least twice, in order to reach your goals whatever they may be.

    3-4 times per week would be great, 5-6 would be the best as I mentioned my budget is kinda flexible and expected to spend more in the beginning, at leasts 6 months.
    I actually don't really know how should the PT works..
    Some told me PT do the training once per week, then I follow his instruction and do the gym by myself.

    Find a training partner so you can motivate each other.
