You don't have to tell anyone anything, especially when they didn't ask, and didn't make any representations one way or the other. It's a management issue. Picking on girls is easy. Doing it with men could land you in the hospital.

Last time a fatass messed with me I ended up on top of him knocking the shit of him. He couldn't move like me hell he didn't even know what was coming when I went from sitting on the ground to leaping 7' across a living room straight to his face.

How do you know they like her? I'd imagine her co-workers all wonder how/why in the hell she works at a gym too. Especially if she sucks at her job on top of being the anti-fitness.
What kind of dick lets one of their coworkers get abused by some random wanker?

to be honest, I've said this before but political correctness and "smoothing the message" will be the death of this nation.

Quit being fucking pansies and call people out for who they are. You're fat, overweight, and obviously have no in-depth of knowledge of your muscles, body structure, or how to do anything other than raise twinkies to your mouth.

Sorry, but as long as you keep telling people "Oh no! You're beautiful and in shape!" is the more we get this fat acceptance and they continue to eat jugs of ice cream on the couch. It's not a win for the overall human race.

I'm glad you did you what did OP.

Why do you think people are in the least bit interested in your opinion of them? How about you just keep your irrelevant opinions of peoples looks to yourself?
Its just plain bullying. You'll say it to some fat girl because you know that she can do fuck all about it.

Go you! You keep picking on the fat chicks!

Anyones opinion is entirely relevant when you're paying them for a service. An obvious service that this person is CLEARLY not qualified for.

Hell, take the fact that she is a fattie and a failed law school student aside, just the fact that she was recommending nothing but machines tells me she Is unqualified to be giving fitness/muscle related advice.

Bothers me too these days. This inability to speak truth out of fear of treading on someone's toes. It's quintessentially feminine, and ruinous to society because character flaws are never identified and addressed.
That said, being diplomatic or circumspect in your exchanges with fellow humans goes a long way toward harmony and compliance. And things escalate quickly when you respond in kind.
So the solution is, speak the truth in love, in a civil manner.

Or put the truth on backburner for a more suitable occasion ... e.g. wait until trainer is snacking on an Oreo, then comment "you must eat a lot of those"

No. Pay them to do the job or fuck off and find someone else. You arent that special.

The guy wasnt paying her to cavort in front of him. He was paying her to advice him on an exercise regime. Its not like he needed Olympic level training levels for his first go in a gym, he just needs to learn how to not kill himself on the machines the first time.

Bullshit. I bet if you gave your opinion in a shop and the owner told you to fuck off you'd be here whining pretty damn quickly.

I had to laugh at the OP. I do not think your attitude was wrong. It was the same thing when I went to Hooters a few years back and an eight-month pregnant server was serving me. Sorry, I went to see Hooters and not pregnant women. Even my wife thought that was just wrong. Maybe I should start a competing restaurant called Preggies and have a bunch of non-pregnant women work there.
I'll be honest, that attitude is worse than the ops lol.

God forbid a woman work a job and get pregnant. Hell, some of the guys at Hooters might be more turned on by that

Exactly right. I don't know about Texas, but during the timeframe I owned mine in Michigan I could hire anybody I wanted and call them a trainer. Hiring someone not qualified/certified is about as bad a business decision as one could make. I had no trainers that were not properly certified, with the paperwork to prove it and they had to annually provide me proof that they had the proper insurance.

That’s because people in Michigan are idiots.

Go bucks

Sorry if that’s rude

As many people here have illustrated (Including a former gym owner) - NO you retard, it's not that simple. If you are paid to train someone you should be CERTIFIED in it - and you should know a thing or two about how the body works.

When the person training you can't even understand the concept of calories in > calories out = weight gain, you're probably not well suited for telling someone how to target muscles - let alone how to properly do a lift with proper form, etc...

Can't say I'm surprised that this forum is filled with socially retarded assholes who wish they could have done the same thing when there are a hundred graceful ways to handle it. Even more insane that this girl got doxxed in this thread.

After 40 years of being in a gym, I agree....except that that gym should have done their job....training. But they short-cutted (sp) the process. Money over quality. Imagine that?

Don't get me wrong, I definitely agree that the gym fucked up, but handling it in private is the right thing to do. There is no reason to go around ruining someone's day (week? month?) over it ... that's not anyone's job. Bring positivity to the world regardless of the fact that your own personal convictions say a fatty who can't use the machines or explain how to use them shouldn't be a trainer.

(not an unreasonable personal conviction)

Jesus fuck, learn what doxxed is before you make an incompetent buffoon out of yourself.

Searching someones name on social media or google isn't doxxing moron. Guess what we got out of her dox? HER NAME. Oh wait, we already had that...

Sorry, but one of the keys to fixing obesity in this country isn't by giving fat acceptance speeches and telling people to cheer up - here's another twinkie.

A wild forum asshole appears!

I don't know what the fuck doxxing officially means, nor do I care, but it wasn't cool to make an anonymous person public on this stupid forum.

IDK what she xyz/pdq...know your job.

She is the victim, imo, of her employer. The OP got the results.

Done.

And again. It was his first time at a gym. He just needed a tour and some instructions as to how shit works. He had his wife with him, it's not like he was going to do a shit lot even if the sexy trainer was there for her to watch. I also said that they could let him off the fee.

How do you know she doesn't know that stuff? I give advice to people all the time that involves them not smoking or drinking because their vascular system is screwed up. I'm going out to get hammered on cocktails this weekend and smoke cigars with everyone else in the department who also gives that advice out.

It was pretty impressive you would of had to be there. It was like I thrusted straight from the floor to mid air flight.

Funny the shit we take for granted not being fat. Just recently I was sitting on the floor with this chick whos not exactly fat but bigger being about 6" shorter and the same weight as me. We both went to get up and she goes how did you do that? I'm like do what? She said you got up without using your hands you just went straight to your feet and up, as she pushed herself off the floor with her arms. I was like oh i dunno never paid attention just how I get up.
