Has anyone used a personal trainer before? Did you get value out of it? Will my sessions improve (less nauseous, more endurance, more fun)?
I am seeing this as a means to an end, I want to be in Potrero in March and I don't want to be a "passenger".
I am a personal trainer.
If you do not benefit from your sessions, you do not have a good trainer. You should improve during your sessions; of course, this all depends on how you are measuring this.
Maintaining a high level of general fitness will make the return to ANY sport (in case people don't realize, that includes >climbing!<) much faster. It is hard to work the very specific strength required in climbing in a regular gym, but regardless, it doesn't matter as you will come back faster than if you did nothing to maintain general fitness. Keep it up!
