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?
I have written comments in the comment box a couple of times at a gym where I work out but do not teach. Simple statements regarding the most egregious safety concerns, “You might want to observe trainer XXX in their methods of teaching squats. I was working out nearby today and it looked like there were some knee issues with the back knee caving inwards on traveling lunges that trainer XXX didn’t notice or address.”
Then the manager can decide whether to observe the trainer or to let it go, but I’ve sent a message in a kind way.
