I’m looking into possibly enlisting in the Coast Guard next year (late summer / early fall 2009). I’ve been thinking about working with a personal trainer to get into peak physical shape, so that not only do I “get-by” at basic training, I blow through it from a physical perspective.
Using that timeframe, when should I seriously commit to a training regimen? I was thinking January / February, but I realize it may take longer to reach “peak” shape (I’m looking to improve everything including cardio-muscular endurance, muscular strength, and overall muscular tone).
Anybody have any tips / pointers / recommendations from their own personal training experiences? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
