Default Top reasons to fire your personal trainer

I'm thinking of making a website just based on this.....so I have:

- He gets his new workouts from magazines
- He uses the words "Core Stability" and "Functional" in everything he says
- He has more than one balance board
- He carries a cell phone with him during a workout
- He wants to workout with you
- He makes you have "arms" day
- He wears a cut off shirt
- He says the word "Tone"

what else am I missing?

-He stares at himself in the mirror with precision like focus as he demonstrates every single exercise in your workout.
-He wears speedos with a sleeveless baggy shirt tucked out.
-He asks everyone that walks by "How YOU doing" instead of correcting your form like he should be.
-He eats 3 protein bars that resemble a sole of a shoe during your training session and picks his teeth afterwards before he lays his sweaty hands around your waist.

One day I found out that my wife threw out all of my sleeveless flannel shirts. I was not amused at the self satisified smirk on her face when I asked her where they were.

We will hook you up with a new batch Shaf! That is a tough look to beat!

-You saw him at a gym promo at the local mall. He's more out of shape than you are.

-Because he has seen Rocky and has access to the heavy bag and/or focus pads he thinks he's a boxing coach.

-His mind, and both eyes, clearly wander from your list of goals for 2007 to the spandex bound ass of the blonde on the stairclimber.

-He offers 'Golf Conditioning'. Without a flicker of irony.

-He needs to refer to this:

http://www.thefitmap.co.uk/exercise/...deos/index.htm

-If you're using resistance bands he can't resist whipping you with one.

-He touches you. All the fecking time. Get off me! It's a 10lb db curl. You do not need to feel me up in order to correct my form.

-He has you spend the first 20 minutes of your 35 minute workout on the stair-stepper to "Get warmed up for the real work."

Saw that last night at the 24hr Fatness. Laziest trainers ever.

Josh Hillis is the obvious exception, skinny arms or no.

-He has a brochure promoting himself where he casually drops that he was an underwear model next to a pic of him in underwear.
-You have seen him with 15 different clients and he has all of them doing the same routine on swiss balls.

- He buys everything in the Power Systems catalog
- He has all of Ryan Lee's How to be a Millionaire CDs
- He is dressed like a Spartan in the gym to capitalize on 300's success
