We recently joined LA Fitness. I went to the gym for this "FREE" fitness assessment. I thought they were going to talk about cool things about the gym that I wouldn't of found out on my own, and then give me my height and weight.
This bozo told me that I need to lose 7 lbs. My weight is in the normal range for my height. So, he can shove it. I will agree that I can firm up in some areas, but I am not a dummy, and I can work the machines all by myself thank you.
This meat head had no idea about what it takes for training for a triathlon. I told him that given my training schedule, I really can't squeeze in another hour per week to work on strength. And I have to prioritize what I'm willing to pay for. If he was a swim instructor, I would've signed up right then and there. But, the dummy suggested that on T/TH I do all three events (swimming, biking, and running) at one time. That way I can focus on strength training (NOT MY PASSION) on M/W/F. Then I visually wrote out what my training schedule looked like per week. He still did not understand that I want to prioritize, and strength training is not a priority.
When he was really leaning hard on me to get a personal trainer he said, "Well, we can all participate in triathlons, but we can't all compete." Listen a-hole, let me know when you've even worked outside of your gym, let alone PARTICIPATE in a triathlon.
If he crosses my path at the gym, he's getting the bird.
