Anna K. complains that she received only general advice on health nutrition and training. She warned that she was suffering from diastasis, but the coach not only did not pay attention to this, but also admitted that he did not know about such a disease.
Among the most popular complaints: trainers are constantly on the phone during training, do not show the correct technique for performing exercises, and pay all attention to their girls, not to clients. Sometimes there are quite strange complaints, like “the coach, instead of calming him down, every training session just sits in one place and laughs very loudly.” The secret of this phenomenon is very simple – the shortage of personnel and the carelessness of the authorities. Such irresponsibility of the trainers can cost you health.
Even in big clubs there are situations when people get injured
The thing is that when buying a subscription in some countries you do not need to submit any health certificates. Some clients are not even aware of the existence of chronic diseases or contraindications to certain sports.
There are very few trainers who allow injuries to their wards. The fact is that people will watch videos on the Internet, read specialized literature, come to the hall and pull the iron on their own. They don’t have a set technique for training, they neglect the warm-up, they don’t feel their body, but they want to immediately “pull the bar like that bearded man over there.”
The spirit of competition and the desire to prove to yourself that you are “cool does not lead to good results.” Most clubs have a trainer on duty, who is obliged to approach those who practice on their own and do the exercise incorrectly at risk to health, and correct them. There is not always an adequate reaction from the trainees to this.”
An unqualified trainer can ruin your health forever
How do you know you’ve got a good coach? The instructor should ask you about your health, injuries, illnesses, and your fitness level. After all, if you have never practiced, then you need one load, and if you moved from another club where you practiced without interruptions, then another. You should also be asked about the goals and objectives of training and be sure to ask about how you feel during the session, especially if you are a beginner.
This is a very delicate moment, often even from a slight load it can become bad at any moment, for example, from a drop in sugar. After training, you should feel moderate physical fatigue, which should not prevent you from fully functioning, and muscle pain should not cause discomfort in the next two to three days.
Many clients say that before joining me, they have been training with heavy weights. My friend, a professional athlete, decided to o training in the gym with iron. Wrong semi-squat – and he already has a hernia, but he has been in sports since childhood. Therefore, the trainer should always be there and monitor the correct execution of the exercises. This is a very big responsibility a person gets for your health.
