The personal trainers who work at my gym.

To the smarter percentage of the members of my gym, it’s almost common knowledge that about 75% of the personal trainers who work there are absolutely clueless. Clueless, by the way, is my really nice way of saying “big stupid idiots.”

You may be wondering how exactly a person such as this can become a personal trainer, especially one that works at one of the largest health club chains in the world. Here’s my theory… I’ve noticed that the really not-so-smart ones almost always possess the ability to speak a second language. I live in New York, which is a place where every other person seems to only be able to speak a language other than English. Combine these two facts, and the gym’s personal trainers are able to get more clients and make more money.

Good for them.

The only problem is, like I mentioned before, these trainers are pretty bad. Actually, there are different levels of bad. Some are good, some are so-so, some are bad, and some are just so bad there really isn’t even a word to describe it.

The reason I’m telling you this is because from time to time, I happen to be in the area of one of my gym’s personal trainers while they are in the process of training a client. What that means is that I am sometimes lucky enough to hear/see these people in action. They might say something. They might show something. They might do something. Whichever it is, it usually ends up being something that is just so bad, you really can’t do anything but laugh.

And, in the future, I would like to share these moments with you.

I wrote this post to sort of explain what the personal trainers at my gym are like so that in the future I won’t have to re-explain it every time.

I’ll relive the first of these moments with you in the next couple of days. It’s one of my all time favorites.
