You Never Get Feedback on Form
Your trainer’s job isn’t just to tell you what to do and where to go. It’s to teach you proper form and to make sure you don’t cheat when your muscles start to fatigue. “Sometimes a trainer will give an instruction, then leave the client to do the movement without glancing up from a clipboard or timer,” Dale says. But this isn’t the way a trainer should train. Instead, your trainer should constantly harp on form in order to fulfill three missions: To help you avoid injury, to help you achieve better results, faster, and to prepare you to exercise on your own. Some trainers avoid emphasizing form to “lock you in” as a client, but truthfully, if your trainer doesn’t emphasize form, that’s a clear sign you should get out of there.
