Things you never want to hear from your Personal Trainer
“If You Stop there will be consequences”
I have learned this the hard way. I was doing push presses above my head for 3:00 minutes at 2:50 I put them down and Damir was a little pissed and said were going to it until you reach 3:00 minutes get them back up there. Which I did and it was very hard, but I push through and finished. To this day I always have that in the back of my head; he says do something and I do it without thinking. Once I was getting changed in the locker room and he was training a client outside the locker room door, he Said “let’s go squat” to his client, and I automatically squatted while trying to get dressed. Yes I am well trained
“Today you will be doing only 3 upper body exercises over and over as many set’s as we can get in the next hour”
Translation: tomorrow you will be drinking your morning coffee through a straw because there is no way you will be able to lift that cup to your lips!
“This is going to hurt, but you can do this”
Translation: when we are done, you will be laying in the corner in the crying for your mommy!
“This week all your sessions will be on the treadmill”
Translation: you will puke many times this week and there will be crying in the shower!
“Come on now this is easy! Let’s Go”
Translation: move your ass or I will break out many burpees!
“Pain is weakness leaving your body”
Translation: I don’t care if it hurts! No stopping or there will be consequences
“Come on Brian! You’re using the girl weights”
Translation: the weights are not that heavy, move faster, stop whining like a little girl, Brianna!!
“This is the last time you will have to do this............., until the next set ha ha ha!!”
Translation: yes I will lie to your face to get better results!!!
“This is going to be an awesome workout; I just finished my second XL Timmy’s coffee”
Translation: Oh Shit this is going to hurt.... and there will be Blood, sweat and tears!!
Things you never want to tell your Personal Trainer
“I am going partying tonight; I won’t be at kickboxing class in the morning”
This is not a good idea as when you say something like that all he is thinking about is all the crap you are about to put in your body! He has your phone number, so there will be a wakeup call in the morning, and like we you are told to do something in the gym, your body will automatically get you moving towards the gym for that Class! I have seen this on more than one occasion, where someone who has stated the night before that they will not be there. Saturday morning comes and they get the wakeup call and they come in, still a little drunk, to do the morning Saturday classes.
“I am in a shitty mood!”
This is wrong on so many levels, but sometimes it is needed to be said, but when you do be prepared for an awesome asskicking! As they are going to beat that bad mood out of you!
