Personal Training

So I got a call last week from a girl wanting to hire me as her personal trainer. First time for this. And I admit I sounded very unprofessional--thinking out loud about when I could meet her because of childcare for my four kids, etc., and admitting to her that I haven't done any personal training before and needing to talk to my husband about how much I'd charge. Yuck! Now that I think about it, I'd not trust myself if this were my first impression of me.

But I took her info, and we agreed on a time and place. I sent her an email with details, encouraging her that I am excited to write the high-intensity workout that she asked for, plus all the other logistics, yadda, yadda, yadda. She didn't reply to the email. Sent her another, double-checking that I have the correct address. No reply. Called her, saying I have another appointment for Sat. morning (true, although not for personal training) and wanted to confirm our appointment, to please let me know if she'll be unable to make it. No call back.

I've written the workout. I have my gear ready. I'll be there at 6am to meet her. Think she'll be there?

  2. how funny! good for you for showing up; i'd have written HER off!
