I apologise beforehand if this is the wrong section or if it's not allowed.
I'm looking for a trainer in the LA/OC area, preferably around fullerton/anaheim/cerritos/downey but am willing to travel up to 25 miles from 92833 or 90201.
I'm trying to pursue the following goals:
1) Get my body fat percentage down (Currently 6', 315~ lbs., and 34.6% body fat but I doubt the accuracy of that, it was measured with a unit that you hold with 2 hands above your chest arms out that is shaped like a boomerang.)
2) Increase my overall strength
I am a criminal justice major and plan to strart the recruitment process tp become a police officer on my 20th birthday which is July 31, roughly 5 months from now. In that time my number one priority is dropping my body fat percentage fast.
I joined an LA Fitness gym back in September of '05 and have seen noticeable strength improvements but I feel that an expert trainer will be able to properly guide me to whatever my potential is and help me lose weight. I considered at first hiring an LA Fitness trainer, but to be honest I get the feeling none of these guys know what the hell they are doing.
I would prefer a trainer with a name that is known around due to my time constraints.
I'm a college student working part time and I'm not loaded with cash but I can manage up to $400 a month because this is a big priority for me to attain my goals.
If this is not enough then I'm fine with skeleton training so to speak, like meeting once a week and explaing various exercises I need to do and show me how to do them properly and do them individually sometime that week. I'm not a pro at any of this but I do pick up fast and I am dedicated. I'm willing to relocate to another gym if need be as long as the cost is not more than $60 a month.
If you are interested in helping me train or know someone who would please contact me in this thread or by email @ daltron [at] gmail [dot] com.
