Help w/ trying to get friend into the gym...
I got a friend who is 25 years old and hasnt lifted a weight in his life.. I told him , i would train him in my basement(got a few weights down there) for about 6 weeks or so, then the plan was for him to get a memebership at my gym(golds).. Well he lost 10lbs on fat and gained 2-3reps on most exercises.. Now, its almost a hassle for me to keep training him, and now its on my time or no time, but he wont get a memebership.. He now has fallen off the wagon for the past 3-4 weeks.. I beleive the main reason he doesnt want to go to the gym because he cant lift alot of weight, I mean he max on the bench is 120lbs.. Other reasons include not knowing all the exercises for all muscles and his time schuled.. But he is making lame ass excuses about getting a membership.. I mean its a good thing for him to do, he just doesnt realize it.. Mabee he just aint cut out for it?? But when I was training him for the 6 weeks, he was soo F motivated... How can I get him to go to the gym..

Tell him there are craploads of hot girls at the gym wearing skimpy clothes....this should get him to at least go check it out.

hum its hard to force something like that on people. They either will or they wont. I trained for 2 years in my garage for the same reasons u stated (couldnt lift much)

yeah but if he is not going, then he doesn't want to go. You need to change his mind. You need something that will make him want to go. Right now he doesn't want to go to lift, but all you need to do is get him in there for a while. Then he either wants to join or not. Sometimes people need a little push to do something, or in his case, perhaps another benefit of joining.
