I like the concept of training at Synergy Fitness Studios. You basically have to have a trainer that belongs to Synergy and you pay them (the trainer) directly for your workouts rather than paying a gym fee. If you don't already have a trainer to h ire, they'll set you up with one. The problem is, they set me up with 2 trainers that were totally wrong for me. I was getting tired of this trial by fire and just stopped.
