I recently received an advetisement to join a personal trainer where he instructs you personally regarding your workouts and meal plans for a one-time fee of $100 or two for $150. So as far as I understand, this does not actually include any training with him at all. From what I can see from online pictures and "testimonials", it seems like he's pretty good at what he claims to do for the amount of money. My hesitations are that I might be able to save this money by going online and doing my own research. The cost of supposed to include a goal that he's willing to help each person with such as, losing weight, putting on muscle and so forth.
Lastly, is there a particular website that can do this for me at maybe a small charge or free? Since expert-exchange is not really considered a health forum, are there some you can recommend? I'm 5'11 and 205 lbs. I'd like to loose about 15-20 pounds and be able to keep some muscle.
