Seems a personal preference to me...but I agree about the warm up thing.
Some of our horses have a beautiful jog that allows a rider to sit it with ease, others are jarring and bouncy and therefor a lot more work to sit. It also depends on the rider's abilities...a novice will not be able to sit a fast trot and really shouldn't because they'll be banging on the horse's back. Slow the horse down and practice and you'll be ok...
Never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly
