7 Things Your Personal Trainer Does That You Should Do, Too. Stay motivated and get fit with these personal trainer-approved health tips. By Taylor Lupo. 1 / 8. Do you ever wonder how personal trainers stay so fit? Surprise: you don’t need to jump into power lifting or shell out the big bucks to work with a personal trainer to get in shape.

#7 Your workout will be the best if you trust your personal trainer. Personal trainers want your workout to be fun, safe and effective too. They don’t mind you sharing an occasional magazine article or exercise idea, but it’s frustrating when you try to control every last detail of the session/program. Protein shakes are good, nothing wrong with them, provide a good source of protein and are also convenient.

But it all starts to get all wrong once you start adding so many scoops of peanut butter, syrup, 101 different fruits, juices and now your small smoothie/protein shake is more than 1,500 calories and 100 grams of sugar. Your personal trainer sucks if they get a real buzz out of the fact you can’t make it up the stairs or sit on the toilet for the week following your last session. When their sole purpose is to make you sore and they tell you that “It’s an essential part of training,” they’re leading you on. 7 Things People Get Wrong About The Hymen.

  • To me, balancing is important for everybody.. Not just athlete but normal people too.. Balancing can develop your synergist muscles well

  • Hi Maik, bit of a segway but i can’t find a more appropriate vlog! A lot of coaches in my gym appear to be catching on to the train the body twice per week. I don’t hear them mention protein synthesis etc. However, this appears to go out the window when it comes to abs and calfs. They insist on 3-4 times per week. Why so? Doesn’t make sense to me. James UK.

  • I think you got something wrong……high reps increases muscular endurance. It doesn’t do ‘nothing unless you haven’t used any resistance ��

  • I have been a MPT for 14 years and just cant take this guy seriously, PT should never use a bosu……. um I and many others use them with rehab clients or maybe its the shill of his book at the end. Maybe he’s improved in the 2 years since he posted this. Maybe not.

  • If you want to learn how to build your business… hands down, I recommend Stu at I took his e-class and he is the real deal. It’s some of the best information I’ve gotten on marketing, lead generating, how to approach new clients and how to keep clients so you don’t have a lot of turnover. He talks about getting started as a trainer at ground zero too and it would have been really helpful if I was just starting out.

    Stu also has a lot of free articles that are extremely (like extremely extremely) helpful… but I would do his e-class if he still offers it.

  • You are wonderful!  You are so articulate and positive.  I love that you want to help people workout safely and get results that they want.  Thank you!!!  I am going to be sharing your youtube channel with 8 of my friends.  We are all in a support group together.  Kind Regards, E.

  • This is all great advice…even for non-trainers to keep in mind. Now I know why I’ve seen success with my trainer! I really like your shorts. What kind are they?

  • Got my trainer certification a couple years back. (On hiatus due to personal stuff)
    At the start, I started training my former teammates who were still competing in sports so they train in powerlifting and weightlifting.
    It created a domino effect where they tell their friends and family about my training routines and it makes them interested. Honestly, it was a good start before I went on hiatus and I plan on getting it back to it soon.
    My biggest fear is becoming the trainer Alan mentioned in this video by not being enthusiastic as I was a couple years go.

  • What is all this crap about kilos being easier?? its weight, it could be tons or tonnes 10 is still 10 whether its pounds or kilos so if your trainer tells you to put ten more on the bar (pounds or kilos) its 5 a side…. simple

  • The bosu ball can help for people who do sports such as tricking and stuff but it also helps maintain balance control and I agree with the everyday life but it’s more of a mind exercise to me than trying to lose weight

  • Damn I be wanting to teach my client barbell training but they all wanna stick to some damn planet fitness. Not getting any real work done

  • Jordan I couldn’t agree more with you on the BOSU squat issue. It chaps me every time I see people standing on the wrong freaking side of the tool. It even says on the BOSU don’t stand on this side! I think functional fitness is awesome but as Linda Shelton says, if you can’t determine the functional purpose for a movement you shouldn’t be using it at all, whether you’re teaching hi/lo aerobics or HIIT the movements actually matter. Anyway…great tools and resources on your channel for us fitpros and the clients we work with as well. Thank you. -MAV

  • How to train crossfitters 101 find the max they can flat bench off the stops tell them to bring it down leave to go get a shake from the vending machine and let nature run its course

  • 4:20 Actually, the greatest conditioning workout ever invented revolves around the use of a deck of cards. It’s called the Gotch Bible and combat athletes have been using it for decades.

  • i live in AZ and i would like to take a 2 week vacation to Sacramento and have you as my trainer in those 2 weeks to teach me all of this.

  • Jordan, I have to say that I strongly disagree with you about the Bosu Ball. I am a CSCS with a MS in Strength and Conditioning. I’ve worked at every level from high school aged kids to pro athletes and I can tell you that training on an unstable surface is very beneficial. I do agree with you that it is not for “functional” strength and shouldn’t be used that way, but it is used to excite the nervous system and create a demand proprioceptively while also training kinesthetic awareness. It is not used to get stronger, but as a way to enhance the messaging between the brain and body and how it carries out a task…. So before you start telling trainers they are bad for integrating this into their system, maybe you should spend more time asking them why they use it in their training.

    Also, box jumps train fast twitch muscle fibers, they also train the tendon, and fast twitch fibers increase in hypertrophy faster than slow twitch. More muscle mass means a raise in Basal Metabolic Response so metabolism increases which would help that client get the result they want. Want you have to know as a professional is the volume at which they perform and if they are cleared to do so… Know you science bro!

  • This guys information is very suspect.

    1: Bosu balls are fantastic for stability training.
    2: Box Jumps are a fantastic Cardiovascular exercise. You’re literally jumping up and down. It’s a basic human function. Only obese people shouldn’t be jumping, if you are chubby find a box, and jump on it. You’ll only get injuries if your box is too high for you.

  • Great Vid! What about the ones on their phone all the time? Lol drives me nuts to think people has money to waste like that..
    Ok please make a vid on exercise and nutrition to get slimmmmmm biquine ready

  • First two 100% wrong.
    What about tide millions of people that work on boats? Lol
    Spot reduction is NOT a myth.
    Let’s use triceps as the example as you did. If someone changed nothing about their nutrition or training EXCEPT instead of hitting triceps 1x per week they hit triceps 3x per week, you WILL reduce body fat as you build muscle there.
    Spot reduction is absolutely possible, I’ve done it, I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of clients do it.
    If you target one specific area above others you can spit reduce, it’s an absolute fact. And it’s not bro science, it’s a physiological fact.

  • Totally unrelated but there’s a dude in my gym, who is the only guy who lifts heavier than me(at least in the morning session I go to), the fun thing is he has only ever seen me on my leg days(including today) and never on my upper body days (he’s a little less frequent to the gym)
    So he thinks I never train my upper body,but I do(It’s a little evident I do)

  • As a personal trainer I couldn’t agree more.
    Unfortunately it usually is not done this way at all or half assed.
    Somehow those in the top are charging tons of money and doing crap while unknown trainers that actually are willing to some work are staying behind
    what matters today for trainers is marketing and money, that sums everything up

  • Been a trainer going on 3 Year Full Time. Never knew sales and marketing was such a big deal until I got my first job. Never told me in school the importance of it. You have to get people excited about it. You need to convince the potential client you are the one who is going to help that person reach their goals. Keep learning. Whatever is going in negative in your life leave it at the door. Keep a strong relationship with the clients. Never take em for granted and be excited for there journey

  • The internet is the best place to get known for your personal fitness training skills because guess who most of the guys are that want to loose weight and gain muscle. It’s people who have desk jobs or spend alot of time on the computer.

  • Hey!! Love your videos man they really help me know the ins and outs of the business. You rock!! lol SO! I want to know more about the legal protection personal trainers need and why. As in, to be able to give a scientifically planned individual nutritional plan, you need to have x y and z to be legally protected and provide the best information to your clients. Thank you!

  • Watching this video after my personal trainer at college made me do 20 push-ups for saying, “I can’t.” I’ve already pretty much done all of what you said already, except for the bargaining.

    Great video. At least now I know why my trainer hates my guts.

  • I knew it was time to move on when I realized they never taught me how to self-unrack for bench press. -_The 200 lbs deadlift was literally me, jesus. And to top it off… they don’t have a squat rack. I paid to gain confidence, now I’m all confident whoops. I don’t have enough thumbs to give this video the praise it deserves for accuracy.

  • I literally got a two free Personal Trainer sessions at my gym to learn how to deadlift and squat. The first session was theory, and the second was practical. Great gym with great service

  • “Your personal trainer should be teaching as if you’re going to teach somebody else in the future.” -Alan Thrall. What an awesome quote. I will remember that forever.

  • Hi Jordan like the comment about the bosu ball, could save people a lot of pain from broken bones. I would love if you could do another video on other things they should not do. I went through 4 and am very low now as I have bad osteoporosis and they won’t work with me. Sign no 1. Diet plan causes an increase in fat inches(lost a stone and got bigger) doesn’t increase muscle over time. No2 drop in metabolism. No 3. They put you on the long finger saying they will call-email and not follow through with it. N04. They refuse to schedule subsequent meetings or are working with another client when you have scheduled to meet them. N0 5 The advice leads to loss of strength and energy. I have severe fatigue that affects my ability to even walk around. I went to another trainer and doubled my body fat. I found out too late. The loss of confidence has been quite devastating and I am trying to go it alone. It is a shame as I needed guidance. My bones are at risk and I have to hope I figure out what caused the muscle loss before this worsens. You seem nice wish there were more like you.

  • What makes no sense he says dont measure a workout by soreness. I always do makes sense to me. You can have 5 guys who lift the same and will naturally have different shaped muscles. I know guys lighter then me just as strong and not as bulky…it all depends on makeup so for appearance I wouldn’t guarantee them to things you can provide… plus working out different muscles prepares yourself for your bodies imbalance… after all you have more muscles then your arms and chest and legs. Dudes not educated

  • Only a straight dumbass would tell a woman they can get bulky for lifting heavy. Cmon now… Yall need to get your certification revoked if yall say this shit.

  • I booked the owner of the gym I’d just joined for a PT session, I said to him I’d like to start strength training and asked if he could show me how to deadlift properly, no shit, he said that he’d tried deadlifting once, but didn’t like it because it was too “alpha”, he then proceeded to try and teach me how to bench press on a Smith machine, needless to say, I got the fuck out of there and never went back!

  • Most honest advice ever. Maik thanks for keeping it real. Most fitness trainers are real douchbags. You are spot on about dropping the ego.

  • To counter your statement of “when you do walk on unbalanced terrain”… hiking, walking on sloped sidewalks, streets. Not every move we make is balanced. You’re a tool

  • I am not too bad at barbell math. I lift in my backyard so I have to figure this shit out myself. Before I got my standard bar I looked up what the weight of the bar is. I wanted to make sure I recorded my weights correctly. It’s odd that people wouldn’t just do a simple internet search to find out the weight of a bar. Hell if you look at the questions on amazon for the CAP standard bar, you have your answer.

  • I came to this video expecting only one reason to apply to my current trainer…turns out he’s all four hahaha. He never taught me how to use the barbell w the excuse that I had too much fat percentage to start weightlifting so instead he would just make me sprint on and on and do a bunch of burpees and DB reps until I felt like shitting myself, but when it came to proper form I knew nothing.

  • My cousin just bough a gym membership and hired a personal coach a 23 year old fitness model type looking hottie, who has her (my cousin) doing nothing but air squats, bosu balls exercises, resistance bands glute “activation” type stuff, “knees can’t go over the toe line goblet squats” and not a single barbell exercise, all while shouting like crazy: “one more rep, come on!”. She even told her to buy some expensive protein powder, cause “she won’t get enough protein on a regular diet”…
    Sounds familiar? 😉
