    Usually when you join a gym, they give you a free trainer for one session. Or some gyms here in America give you a free trainer for a month 3 times a week and then you pay if you decide to keep them. From my experience, I worked harder with a personal trainer but it's just too expensive. My gym offers classes so I do that (kick boxing, Zumba, toning circuit, etc) instead of working out on the machines at no extra cost.
    If you want your life to be a magnificent story,
    then begin by realizing that you are the author and
    everyday you have the opportunity to write a new page.

    I would defo take a personal trainer as you want to make sure you are using the correct form for each exercise. Good luck.
