I workout at a gym I am not working for. I get so frustrated when I see other trainers clearly training a client using incorrect form or just plain bad, possibly harmful, exercises. I don’t know what to do. Should I say something to the manager? I mean this place is known to hire people before they recieve their certification and give them up to 6 months to get it. What do I do?
You only end up in a ‘he said / she said’ argument that you won’t win. If that gym is known to hire people as ‘trainers’ before they are certified then approaching the manager is hardly a viable solution.
On the other hand: I have altered exercises for my clients for very specific reasons. Is that possible? And why not ask the ‘trainer’ for his rationale to modify the exercise? Maybe you can strike up a conversation.
