I have had the great fortune and honor to work with some of the most dynamic personal trainers/fitness coaches who happen to be women. On more than one occasion I have seen men, whether in good physical condition or not frown, scowl or have immediate hesitation in training with a woman.
Has there been any experience any of you have come across regarding this situation and how was it handled.
Actually, I have experienced quite the opposite in the personal training realm. I find that my male clients feel less intimidated and less in need of ‘competing’ with me than if I were a man. However, I have the advantage in that I am older, and – having 18 years of corporate experience prior to being a personal trainer – I can easily hold my own to any ‘big wig’.
