When you ask your trainer a question do they look like a deer caught in headlights? I've always been of the mindset that encouraging my clients to ask any questions pertaining to training, cardio, and nutrition creates awareness, and improves results. It's prudent for trainers to provide a safe training environment where clients can ask questions when there's any kind of concern. I reason, that the more they understand how they're impacted by the program that's been developed specifically for them, the more long term results they'll continue to experience. Who doesn't want that?
The truth is most clients who enlist a trainer prefer for the trainer to be their paid conscious. In other words, put them through the paces when they come in for their training and send them down the road, which is fine, but my philosophy has always been to give my clients a great workout each and every time, in addition continually teaching them about training, cardio, and nutrition without overwhelming them.
So, I urge you as a paying client to feel good about asking your trainer whatever the heck is on your mind about your program because if they're legit they will welcome your questions with forthcoming enthusiasm because it shows you care, plain and simple. They should also be able to give you an answer that is coherent, correct, and easy enough to understand. On the other hand, if your trainer looks stunned because of your questions, or gives you the vibe that you're in any way inconveniencing them, find a new one, because you probably have a faker on your hands. Fakers beware, the fake trainer police are on the prowl watching you.
