Every body these days seem to think that by going through the motions will get them all the benefits without the suffering that comes with it.

At the city gym here we don't have personal trainers. All we do is show people how to use the machines and that's it. Interesting thing is how the rest of the staff have followed my lead on this.

When I show people equipment I only show 4 machines at any time. That way they will retain hopefully what has been shown and do it right. Because I have noticed most trainers in gym's show the client 15 exercises in one session and they client doesn't do them right.

Better to do 4 exercises and get them right before adding more. Plus if they want more they will ask and learn more.

We also have a general policy here of no hand holding.
