How to Choose a Trainer, Coach, or Mentor

I first met Day my first week into a re-commitment to exercise (after being fairly sedentary for several months). It was a Saturday morning “boot camp” that a friend had invited me to. I made it through the workout (barely) without getting sick or passing out. It was extremely challenging to say the least. Some of the exercises I was physically incapable of, others I struggled through. Since that time I have worked out with Day an average of at least once a week for about 23 weeks as of this writing. I’m absolutely certain I have made progress with him that I would not have made on my own.
