Choose - Personal Chef or Personal Trainer?

I would love to have both!

If I had to choose, I'd go with the Personal Chef. I think it would remove a lot of temptation if someone else was doing all the cooking and doing it in a healthy way.

I would love to be a better cook and have ideas to eat in a more healthier way like you say

I think I'd choose the personal trainer. I'm pretty good (most of the time) at cooking and eating healthy. Working out is another story... I could definitely use some help in that department.

This is such a hard choice!
I would probably go for the personal trainer as I think they would push me harder than I push myself. Plus they could show me all the different exercises to do and give me more confidence.
A chef would be good though!

Easy choice for me - personal trainer! I would to have someone that can whip my butt into shape. I have a feeling if I had someone that was kicking my butt in the gym I could change my diet on my own.

What a great question, why can't we have both?? I think I would have to go with the personal chef. On top of removing the temptation for me to cook and eat fatty foods, I'd love to have the chance to learn how to cook really yummy stuff in a good, healthy way.

I think having a Personal Chef would free up a lot of time to do other things. I could be working out while they toil in the kitchen, but I see the merits of having a Personal Trainer too. It would be so much more motivating to have someone hold me accountable for my physical health.

Ideally, it would be great to have the chef for about six months and then the trainer for the following six months.

A girl can dream, right?

I don't mind cooking. Sometimes I end up changing my mind about what I have a taste for at the last minute. That would probably drive a chef crazy.

I would go with the trainer because I think I could really benefit from their help working around different injuries. I still struggle a bit with the tendon in my foot and have some shoulder pain. A trainer would be fantastic especially if they knew a little about physical therapy.
