We recently had a national level competing bodybuilder start as a PT in the gym. I was genuinely excited to work with him. The guy trains really hard, lives and breathes bodybuilding, is heyoooge, stays freaky lean even in the off season.
After 4-5 months he's leaving, can't get any business. 2 of his clients have came to me so far, both female, both beginner fatloss clients, and both were given "arm days" among other things. One of them i couldn't even screen her shoulders a whole week after her arm day because she could hardly move them. Not just an arm day but, tempo training, forced reps, drop sets, the lot.
I don't understand it.
There's an old joke, those that can't do, teach.
It's not funny and its not true. Teaching is a very specific skill. Some people are genetically gifted to teach as surely as Arnold is to build muscle.
Sounds like the guy was not a teacher. They're harder to find than most people think.
