sweet_summer_freebie.jpg After one too many red velvet cupcake indulgences and a lack of gym activity due to a mix of laziness and sheer boredom, I am officially in need of some help to get back into svelte summer-savvy shape!

I am a strong believer in personal trainers, but you have to know which one is right for you. For a woman who wants to burn fat and tone her muscles – cardio + strength training is key. After some serious research, I decided upon New York Personal Training because of their unique training plan. At NYPT, each client gets a different plan according to his or her needs – this type of personalized guidance is exactly what you want in a personal trainer. Often times, trainers have a set general plan that they tweak very slightly for each person. These plans usually don’t work in the long-term because everyone has a different body-type and different nutrition and fitness needs.

Michael Shaw, the founder of NYPT, assured me that with the right diet and balanced fitness regimen, my goal of losing 10-15 lbs. in a month was definitely doable and healthy. In the next few CP editions, I plan to keep BN readers posted on my progress and results. Just think of me as the honorary fitness guinea pig that makes sure things work before you give it a go!
