Serial Trainer

This section will be used to post some of the funny things I’ve seen or heard in my years as a personal trainer.

Client: “I don’t eat meat. I’m a vegetarian”
Me: “Okay. Great! Let’s start with breakfast. What did you eat?”
Client: “2 Eggs with one piece of sausage.”

Member: “Can I ask you a question about your bodybugg?”
Me: “Sure!”
Member: “Have you worn it while having sex?”

I think one of the funniest things I can think of in my days of being a trainer, was inventing what I call the “cat scratch stance”. It comes from doing walking lunges, squats and hamstring curls. I don’t call my clients the next day, I wait one more. Then I call them and ask them how they’re feeling. Most times I get, “Oh my God!” then a hushed, “I was hurting so bad I couldn’t barely sit down to pee!”. That is when I smile and nod and say, “Ah yeah..the cat scratch stance. You had to hold both hands on either side of the stall, then let your fingers scrape along as you try to hover over the toliet seat?”

Usually after the fit of laughter they confirm it.

“Cat scratch stance”! Hahaha!

Jason says:

I have one for you.

Potential client: “I want to get in shape, but I don’t want to have to exercise and eat healthy. Eating healthy is boring.”

Me: “I wish you luck in finding another trainer to work with you.”

Ron says:

I think I actually used that one on the Serial Trainer a time or two myself.
