A coach is the main assistant of any athlete, both professional and amateur. It is he who will always tell you how to do the exercise correctly, select sports nutrition and clarify what needs to be changed in your regimen. As a rule, trainers have not only iron muscles, but also steel nerves, but they can also be pissed off.
Daria Skvortsova, the leading universal trainer of a unified fitness subscription to more than 400 sports clubs in Moscow, St. Petersburg, OneFit.ru, spoke about the 7 most popular whims of fitness club clients that can infuriate even an experienced trainer.
Caprice number 1. I want everything at once
A client comes to the fitness room and wants incredible results in a very short time. For example, lose weight by three sizes in five days. Especially often, such a desire arises for some important date - an anniversary or a wedding. Of course, the achievement of such a goal is impossible without harm to health, but it is precisely its strengthening that should be the main motivation for any workout.
Coach's advice: it is necessary not only to realistically assess your form at the moment, but also to set feasible goals, taking into account age, lifestyle and other criteria.
Caprice number 2. I want everything without stress
An alternative version of a pipe dream is the desire to achieve sporting achievements without the necessary load. For example, pump up the buttocks, like that of Kim Kardashian, lifting a barbell weighing three kilograms. The option "nice and without stress" is, of course, possible. However, alas, not in the fitness room.
Trainer advice: the specialist will select the optimal load, which should be increased over time in order to achieve the dream figure. By the way, girls are often afraid to be "pumped" - do not be afraid, even from a barbell weighing 50 kg without special food it is impossible to turn into Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Caprice number 3. And talk?
Some clients like to chat a lot. In this case, the topic can be anything - from tooth extraction to the divorce of the older sister of the brother's ex-girlfriend. Clueless conversations greatly interfere with training, especially when the "stream of consciousness" is continuous. Remember that all effort should be directed towards exercise. This is also the dream of a coach who is far from always inclined to maintain a conversation.
Coach's advice: we speak only to the point, don't stop breathing - we get the maximum result.
Caprice No. 7. I took gold in 97th!
The opposite of whim number 2. This often happens when a person in the past went in for sports, say, 15 years ago. He comes to the gym and "already knows everything": he immediately begins to take large weights, exhausts his body. Most often, men sin this, especially if girls are doing it nearby. In the worst case, after such a workout, you can rip your back or earn a hernia, but
more often it all ends with a terrible pain in the whole body the next day and an early termination of a sports career.
Trainer's advice: the load should be increased gradually. A professional will select exercises for all muscle groups, taking into account age, weight and health status. Such training will only bring pleasure, and the results will not be long in coming. Go to the gym with pleasure, and the coaches will be happy to help you achieve your goals!
