I recently had an employee take over a class that I was unable to teach anymore. He was an amazing instructor but, he was over weight. The class went from averaging 16 participants to 3 participants. I had a few members comment on his weight and make it known that is why they would not attend that class anymore. Is it okay for clientel to be biased about their instructors/trainers?
YES 100% could. Ask yourself would you want to train with someone with someone who is out of shape? NO. People are infatuated with image and I believe they have a right to be to a certain extent. You must practice what you preach and be credible – If you are overweight and are trying to give me dietary information am i going to take it? Most likely not – If you were obese and lost a large amount of weight will i? most certainly
