I’m describing a women who came along to our outdoor bootcamp
Not to put her down or make fun of her
It’s not her fault
It’s her ‘personal trainers’ fault
Here’s the story
This women who shall remain unnamed, came along to our Saturday morning bootcamp
Having spoke to her previously before meeting her, she said that she goes to the gym 3 x per week and has a personal trainer
But, she was looking for something a bit different
She saw our awesome FB page and decided to come along for a free class
So, along she comes to Saturday’s bootcamp
Fills in the PARQ form and we’re good to go
Only 3 of our other clients show up and those 3 were in pretty damn good shape
But, I’m thinking she’ll be OK if she’s as fit as she sounds
(she looked in good shape too)
15 minutes in and she’d walking, breathing out her ass because of the high paced cardio
(she then says that she only does the cross trainer in the gym)
BIG difference between going through the motions on a cross trainer and sprinting
Anyway, we move on to the ‘main’ part
Got the jerry cans out, the kettlebells & slam balls
Technique wasn’t anywhere near what I thought it would have been
Again, not her fault
You see, she told me she had a ‘personal trainer’ for a good while
She couldn’t even do a bodyweight squat, a plank or even lift weight up correctly
She paid some guy who is a ‘personal trainer’ to do what??
Stand on a cross trainer for 45 minutes?
Walk on a treadmill for an hour?
Sit on the bike for pedal effortlessly and aimlessly?
This shit really pisses me off
’cause these ‘personal trainers’ charge usually no less than £25 per hour
(we’re amazing so obviously we’re more expensive haha)
Know who you’re paying to help yo
Do some research! If they don’t have any social proof on their FB pages or any testimonials/reviews
(Check ours out, TONS of video/photos of clients training PROPERLY with perfect technique)
I’d be very wary!
That’s all today
