        My personal trainer made me lift weights with an arm cast and I had pins in my finger from post-surgery so I switched trainers shortly after my contract was up.

              There are too many trainers out there just focused on getting as many clients into the program as possible to where they forget about the quality and consistency of their program between clients. Fit Biz Owners themselves need to make $$$, so they have to focus on getting bodies in the doors too. The best coaches/trainers can get bodies in the door, but also train them well!

                    Enjoyed this video! Talked to one person who was totally cookie cutter. Who really has the time to eat chicken 9x a day?

                      my old trainer (I had two the first one was just what you described the second was AMAZING)… my first trainer would get between 5-8 of us all doing everything at the same time. I've got two kids, my good friend had 4, and we were doing the same stuff as the 19 yr girl, a mid 20's runner and an overweight short girl that although she had tons of energy, she struggled a lot. my trainer would yell at her and call her lazy. when she didn't come, she would mock her and talk behind her back. I felt she booked us all at once so she could get our workouts done within 1 hr ago she could go about her day.

                          Great video! Quick question though. I'm in sports conditioning & exercise science (using ACE). So I become certified personal trainer and that's it. I'm not aloud to give meal plans bc I'm not a dietician, therefore it's out of my scope of practice. Is that statement correct?? And how do train people who are… afraid of what people think of them so then they do not get in "the zone". Or they don't really participate. So how do I deal with clients with high expectations with low effort?

                            I agree with you Matty I have been personal trainer for 10 years at Planet Fitness Craighall South Africa. All the above is true.

                              FlutieXX what harm can a trainer do to a client that has been given the all clear by a medical professional to participate in a fitness program by prescribing that the client stop eating pizza and instead have a broiled chicken breast with vegetables ?? Or substituting their burrito for a tuna with a garden salad?? Or egg white omelette for breakfast instead of a bowl of Cherrios?? There is no way a client could take any action against you for prescribing an eating plan that has natural foods in it. The insurance company may not cover you for it but seriously no harm can be done to anyone if they eat healthier. Of course if a client has food allergies etc then a dietitian is required but for the average healthy person you cannot cause any harm and they would be hard pressed proving that a change in their diet from processed to natural foods was the cause of that harm quite the contrary. I am a PT and I give nutritional advice but I make sure the client signs off on a waiver that the advice is just advice and they acknowledge that they cannot pursue any damages if they follow that advice.

                                I do see the point trying to be made here, however body response is very predictable, exercise prescription body response is very predictable as is body response to changes in diet is very, very predictable. So if you give the correct information the client will get the result. People have more in common than they have differences. 30 years ago when I first started squatting I am sure that my knees were caving in and my back was rounded but with repetition I gained the muscle and with it stability and correct technique. If a client has never squatted then their form is always going to be poor at the start. Start light and fix the technique. Body fat loss is a simple and the formula to achieve it is simple, but not easy for most people, there is no silver bullet and there is no difference in advice from person to person for body fat loss. You need to replace bad nutrition, with better choices and a prescribed eating plan is the only way to success for the inexperienced client. If a person is overweight and they want to change their bodies its obvious they need a nutrition plan. You can't eat what you want and lose body fat or grow lean muscle mass despite what some people advocate. I am not saying that you are contradicting this point, but if your trainer cannot give you an eating plan to follow then that to me is red flag to drop them if your goal is to lose body fat or increase lean muscle mass. Follow the plan and lose the body fat or grow the muscle, no plan, no result for the client. Pretty simple really. Remember its 70% nutrition and 30% training. Without the diet changes results are minimal at best. So find a trainer who gives you a plan that works and if that plan is a cookie cutter plan that works then what more could you ask for from your trainer??

                                  I've had the best results from having a personal trainer. It's a lifestyle thing, my personal trainer makes me feel a lot more positive and happy. Instead of spending money on shoes and hand bags, invest in a personal trainer. They are worth it!
