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?
If it’s someone I’ve mentored, I’m completely good with calling a trainer or group-ex person on a safety issue. “Is it OK if I give you some thoughts on a move I saw you teach?” Since we’ve already been in a mentor / mentee relationship, the person has always said yes and we have an opportunity to grow.
If it’s a coworker I haven’t mentored or don’t know well, I’ve done the “curious questioning” technique mentioned above.
