Blamed for lack of Client Willpower
(Leeds, Alabama, USA)
The absolute worst thing about being a personal trainer is getting blamed for clients not getting in shape fast enough. You do all you can, but all the client sees is that the weight is not going away, and their arms aren't toning up; but that couldn't have anything to do with the supersized big mac combos, apple pies and gallons of soda they 'reward' themselves with after their workouts.
You can only do what you can as a personal trainer, it is a teamwork thing although some clients don't want to acknowledge that. All I can do is suggest changes in diet, I can't follow them around all day, making sure they do what they need to do to make their goals a reality, yet sometimes they blame me.
