I will be quitting my job as a trainer. The company I worked for (Around the clock fitness) has ripped me off of literally thousands of dollars. My complaints have fallen on deaf ears. I hate to leave my clients, they work so hard towards their goals but I cannot work at a place that puts zero focus on honesty. I learned a lot there in a small time about what I don;t want to be like and how not to treat people. and with that said  I’m out.

I’m getting ready to to train my first client of the day, I started thinking about all the slogans I see on clothing at the gym. like “Just do it” or “Sweat is fat dying” or whatever campaign is popular this month. What I wanna see is real clothing. Something like “I’m here because I love cheeseburgers” or “I’m here because society says I should be”or “I pretend to be confident” A lot of people I see are not in it for the health aspect it is solely the physical… I wish it weren’t that way. Now don’t get me wrong I love certain phrases as a former fat guy  “redefining my impossible” is one I live by. I also like funny shit like “I ran this half marathon because I love cheese” which I do and I have.

Sunday

So today I got 7 miles in before my protein shake. But let me tell you the story of those miles.It was cold for Florida (53 with 10 mph winds) so that mean long sleeve shirt and compression tights. and Yes I wear shorts over them because nobody needs to see that. So I run  a mile long sleeve comes off. I want to just toss it but don’t. Not because of littering or the plight of the homeless but because it’s a Batman shirt, I’d never forgive myself. I run to my gym 3.4 miles away I check in and decide to lift. After a few minutes I realize if I stay here I will walk home, NO BUENO. So I leave and start running home. I’m tired and hot  now and want to shed these damn tights like Marilyn Manson circa 1994. I continue on telling myself “Just 2 1/2 more miles”  “You could call an Uber”  “I know I’ll flag down a police officer and explain i was mugged and need a ride home”. The cop would laugh and say “who would have the nerve to mug a dude like you?” I’d then explain how I was approached by a very aggressive group of grannies in an 87 Cadillac El Dorado Who threatened me with the dirty tennis balls that padded the feet of their walkers. In the end i just ran home. But these are the things I think when I run.

Personal Trainers

So how much does or a should a personal trainers physical appearance affect your decision to train with them. I am not an Adonis but I know what I am doing and how to get results. I am NOT a pretty boy nor would I ever want to be, I have lived the life of a fat man for 99% of my life. With that being said will any of that matter to my clients? Should it? Would you rather train with someone who can actually relate to your struggles. Or with someone who is pleasant to look at and won the genetic lottery. I’m not saying that the pre conceived notion of how a trainer looks is a bad thing. More so that pre conceived notions are a bad thing. If you saw my before and after (done solely by me) would you hire me? Replies are appreciated.12662468_10208798961120213_4585763578420156125_n
