10 Pet Peeves of a Personal Trainer

Personal trainers have dedicated their lives to improving the personal fitness of people. They have graduated from accredited schools like AmeriTech College in Utah. They are professionals—with a few pet peeves.

1

Late Payments.

Late Payments.

A majority of personal trainers are self-employed. When you miss or send a payment in late, their business suffers, and so does their mortgage.

2

Habitual Tardiness.

Habitual Tardiness.

Being late to anything—except a party—is just bad taste. Don’t waste the personal trainer’s time; be punctual.

3

Chatty Clients.

Chatty Clients.

Casual chat during a session is important because it builds a relationship between personal trainer and client, but clients who talk non-stop throughout the session make it difficult for the personal trainer to do his job.

4

Unpreparedness.

Unpreparedness.

Your personal trainer may have gone to Utah’s AmeriTech College to learn how to increase your personal fitness, not for elementary education. Be prepared. Bring your own water and towel; eat a light, healthy meal before your workout.

5

Interrupted Sessions.

Interrupted Sessions.

If your personal trainer is in the middle of a session with another client, don’t bother him. Wait patiently until he finishes.

6

Last Minute Cancellations.

Last Minute Cancellations.

If it’s an emergency, your personal trainer will of course understand; however, it’s policy—and polite—to give your trainer 24 hour notice.

7

Clients Who Ignore Exercise and Diet Advice.

Clients Who Ignore Exercise and Diet Advice.

Your personal trainer has been educated by a certified personal fitness program like the one at AmeriTech College in Utah, or another school like it. When you ignore his health advice, you’re insulting his intelligence. He knows what he’s talking about.

8

Lack of Effort.

Lack of Effort.

Your personal trainer wants to see you meet your goals, but if you aren’t putting in the appropriate amount of effort, neither of you will be satisfied with the results.

9

Progress Complaints.

Progress Complaints.

If you aren’t seeing results, don’t immediately blame the trainer. There are many possible reasons for you not having met your goals yet. Schedule a meeting with your personal trainer so together you can identify the problems.

10

Cold Shoulders.

Cold Shoulders.

If you have a problem with your personal trainer from Ameritech College, don’t ignore it. That can make sessions unbearably awkward and your trainer’s job more difficult. Kindly address the problem with your trainer so you can work it out and carry on with business.
