The personal trainer pushes me way harder than I have ever pushed myself, to be sure. Somehow instinctively I know that I go easy on myself while exercising and that if I were to make any significant progress, would need somebody to encourage and push me. So far it's working.
I'm a bit surprised about just how badly out of shape I am. I mean, I walk three or four miles a day at least five times a week and I am strong physically, but I pant and hack and sweat my way through these workouts gasping for dear life. I'm exhausted by them to a degree that I've rarely experienced, at least as an adult.
I'm happy that I am finally doing it, but it's a lot of work, and I think it will continue to be a lot of work for longer than the three months I am signed up for.
