HOW TO MAKE A TRAINER CRANKY
In just 8 easy steps.

1. Write your name down as interested in a Complimentary Trial Session
2. Book in a time 2 weeks in advance, on a Saturday, requesting a female trainer, for a mother and daughter.
3. Female trainer is happy to work the Saturday as has enough notice to re-arrange usual Saturday schedule, and would love to meet up with you. (Male trainer usually only works Saturday). This is the only session booked for that particular trainer, that day.
4. Trainer re-confirms the session 24 hours in advance by leaving a message on home phone and mobile.
5. Trainer rides her bike into work early to avoid the crazy traffic.
6. Trainer receives phone call at 7am saying yes, we will be there. They discuss what to wear and what to bring.
6. Trainer showers and makes herself look respectable and does other work for 1.5 hours until session.
7. Trainer organises prospective client's analysis and assessment paperwork, and drafts a pairs training session on paper.
8. Trainer receives phone call right on the dot when session is due to start. "We've changed our mind".
COULDN'T YOU COME UP WITH THAT EARLIER?!?!?

Don't get me wrong, I really really really love my job :)

The good points: I can leave earlier and get all the other errands done that I need to do today. And this weekend, the list is looooong.

So, off I go shopping now! :)

Must be in the air. My 3 at 5.30am this morning turned into one that could have trained at any time today. But at leass I had one.
