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?
Though most people advise stay out of it, this is a safety concern.
Sometimes, when I see something that I might think is a little off, I ask the trainer if they can tell me why that person is doing that exercise in that way. That way I can see where their head is at. There is nothing wrong with asking questions, but it doesn’t have to be in an accusatory manner.
It’s not about telling on the trainer, but rather about trying to help each other.
