The high's and low's of a new job
to start off I recently just landed a job doing pt at a fitness center. I will start off with the high's!
Gosh damm poon tang galore!! I met up with the very nice girl and now were progressing into the first date arena. It all started with me correcting her form on squats then I just started showing her tons of stuff to do for working out. She wants to start training with me now to see what i do as a routine. i am sooo geeked right now!! today nothing could bust my bubble!
OK, the lows are my fucking boss wants me to act over zealous, happy go lucky, walking around with a fucking bounce in my stride for 8 hrs a days, raise my tone of voice like I am some happy go lucky clown. I feel as if they want me to change my personality and act fake to the customers. Have any of you guys or girls worked in a gym doing pt or working the desk and had to deal with this shit?? i respect my boss but the fucker wants me to change my personality. what the hell does this have to do with training?? Whos fucing strings are the pulling??
oh well, who cares. I have a date this weekend with a fine ass girl who is super nice and has a good head on her shoulders. screw them all!!!

Yup, I work in one now. Im a PT and a supervising floor instr. You see the way it goes at my gym is you market your own clients as a PT. So, bounce or no bounce ya do what ya go to do to make them grab your bait. Oh yhea and OMG the WOMEN, I love it and there all in tights. You will get used to it bro, na I lied...LOL

I don't put in 8 hour days, more like 8 hour weeks, but as part of the deal I have with they gym to train my clients there, I do a little floorwork and orientation stuff for them (they pay me the rate of a regular employee during that time), which I'll gladly do because I basically just socialize and discuss workout tips with the more knowledgable members. I have it easy because of that, but BOY do i feel for the 4 or 5 guys who don't have their own clients and are slaves to the gym. It's the same thing all the time from the boss: "Project that energy!".

That's what all the trainiers I've see are like; always up, always courteous, always cheerful.
I guess it's like selling cars; you start to grumble, and customers will pick up on it and go elsewhere. Gotta be selling your services all the time.
I've seen some of their clients that really needed a good swift kick in the ass, but the trainers had to hold it in and be cheerful . . .
You have a tough job; too much pr for me . . .

This up beat shit is fucked, I dont walk around like a grump but I cant act like something I am not. I feel as if I should be real and give them a real personality

and you say you're not a grump.

Then we just went back to her place and that was it, she said she had a great time and gave me a nice smooch. Today i sent her some flowers, in regards to a good date

Good deal on the girl bro! I'm looking to get my PT cert pretty soon, and I tell you what I'm a pretty happy guy but being a cheer leader? Damn bro! I don't know about that, I mean sure sell your services and that of the gym, but I'm not gonna sugar coat my act. Good luck and good job!
