After graduating from high school and working several dead-end jobs, JD lands a job as a personal trainer at a newly opened gym. At first he is inexperienced and shocked at how much money people are willing to drop to train with him. But soon he starts to learn the ropes of the business. It’s not long before JD carves a niche for himself training well-to-do housewives and successful older women. As he gives into these women’s demands, he is faced with an internal struggle: he wants to make money and retain clients, but he knows that what he is doing is wrong. If his girlfriend or one of his clients’ spouses ever found out about this other life he’s leading, everything could blow up in his face and it could mean the end of his career. But for the time being, what’s wrong with enjoying the attention of many attractive, sexy women who seem to be more than willing to please young JD? This hilarious and honest collection of stories includes advice for both personal trainers and clients and a look at the lesser-known-side of personal training.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
To be honest with you, I don’t read biographies. I like to read to escape from real life, but I was glad I did read this. You get to see what it would be like as a personal trainer, and laugh a little along the way.
J.D. does a fantastic job with going into detail about what he has experienced so far during his time as a personal trainer. When I first picked up the book (and after I read about the synopsis) I figured I’d be reading about him having a good ole time with all the gym bunnies and what not. I mean, what guy denies a hot chick throwing herself at him (if I was a guy, I probably wouldn’t), but it’s not really just about that. He talks about how the things he enjoys, and maybe something’s he might have done differently.
All in all this was a really great book! Even if you aren’t really into the biography books, I would still recommend this to you. If you have some time to read this book, you won’t regret it.
