15 Personal Trainers Who Put The "P" In "Personal"

If you are looking to get into shape fast, a personal trainer is probably the way to go. However, what exactly comes along with a personal training session? If someone thinks their trainer is thinking about the best exercises for them to do, I hate to say it, but they probably have other things on their minds.

Whether it involves making their clients do stretches so that they can stare, sleeping with clients after they get into shape, or meeting clients for their night job as an escort, some of these trainers really put the “personal” in personal training. Nevertheless, thanks to the users of the Whisper app, we are able to see what exactly comes along with a private personal training session with a male trainer.

Note: please note that not all male personal trainers behave in this manner.

15 The Pursuit of Happiness

Female clients trying desperately to pursue something more with you. That is the apparent story of the male personal trainer. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. However, if you are like this next guy, and you're married, your clients can throw themselves at you all they want, but the main thing is that you never act on any of those advances. And this guy definitely deserves an A+. While this guy may not pursue anything with his clients, I don’t think that he should tell his wife about it. Some things are better left unsaid. Especially if he's committed.

I can’t help but wonder if these male personal trainers have any male clients. If you want to avoid temptation, there are different ways to go about it.

14 When Booty Calls

whisper.sh

Wait a minute. Are you telling me all of those ridiculous stretches don’t actually do anything? They’re just meant to show off people’s bodies for the trainer’s enjoyment? Wow! This is news to me! This means that all of those “hamstring” stretches weren’t for me, but for my trainer. How are people expected to trust trainers with their bodies if they are purposefully doing things just so they could stare? Doesn’t this go against trainer-client trust? And if trainers can’t be trusted to not make their clients workout for their enjoyment, how can we trust that they are actually getting people in shape? For all we know, people could produce better results on their own than having to be ogled at when you’re trying to workout.

13 Hooking Up

whisper.sh

Speaking of temptation, look no further than this next confession. In what seems straight out of a low budget porn storyline, this personal trainer had a very eager married female client. This eager client decided to buy more sessions from their trainer. Nothing wrong with that. Then this client even offered to pay double... So what’s the problem? Well, it turns out, that this married woman was willing to pay double under one condition. He would have to hook up with her. See what I mean about the whole porn thing? This guy may still be thinking about it, but if he goes through with this, then he will essentially be an escort. He’ll be getting paid to sleep with someone.

But you gotta do what you gotta do. No judgments here.

12 Right Of Passage

whisper.sh

Okay, this is getting a little ridiculous. This guy has slept with every one of his female clients after they got into shape? Are you serious? How does this even work? Once they hit their target weight goal does he seduce them? Does he take them out to dinner? Or does he promise them in the beginning of their time together that if they get in shape, he’ll sleep with them? Is it sort of like a bribe? And do people know this before they sign up for workouts with him?

I have so many unanswered questions!

Does he spike their protein shakes? This is crazy. Who would have thought that the quickest way to hook up with tons of people would be to become a personal trainer?

11 Cut Off

whisper.sh

Are you telling me that this guy’s ex-girlfriend broke it off because he had too many female clients? Why should that person have been concerned? It’s not like male personal trainers make their clients stretch and exercise in provocative ways so that they can stare at their bodies or anything like that... And it can’t be because she was afraid that he would be hooking up with them as a “right of passage”... What else could it be? Look, I’m not saying that all male trainers do this, but there does seem to be a pattern among these few. However, this next guy seems to be on the up and up and just has bills to pay. It sucks that his last girl couldn’t get past it, but these things happen.

10 Cold Shower

whisper.sh

Okay, first things first. I don’t know about you, but if I was married, there is no way I’m letting my wife go workout at a male personal trainer’s home. That’s just common sense. I don’t care how much I trust them, it’s just not happening. Secondly, why was this guy in the shower if he was going to be training someone right after? Won’t he get sweaty and have to take another shower after? And if he was showering, why would the client get there so early? And how did this person get in their trainer’s house? And if they heard the shower was running, why did they just walk in? Something just doesn’t smell right here and I can’t seem to put my finger on it.

9 I’m Loving It

whisper.sh

Have you ever heard the saying, “choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”? Well, it seems that this next person has, because he absolutely loves what he does. What could be better than being in shape and sleeping with a bunch of female clients? And let’s not forget that he is essentially being paid to do this. To each their own, I suppose. With all of the trainers sleeping with their clients, I can’t help but wonder what the qualifications are for becoming a personal trainer. Not for me, but I’m just curious as to how all of these guys were able to become personal trainers. Maybe they should make the qualifications a bit tougher. They should also take a few sexual harassment courses, as well...

8 Do Or Do Not; There Is No Try

whisper.sh

I have to admit, it’s quite refreshing to see a personal trainer who isn’t actively trying to look or cop a feel. But it's kind of sad that the bar is set so low. If there is one thing that should be used in any trainer-client relationship, it should be respect. If you do not have respect, you do not have anything. And I really have to respect this next guy for trying so hard to be professional. Yes, this guy sometimes looks, but he’s human after all. Whether it is by accident or not, there are some instances when you can’t help but look. I guess if we were to look at the scale of male personal trainer creepiness, this guy would definitely fall at the lower end, which is unsettling.

7 Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

whisper.sh

Well this certainly explains all of the advertisements that I’ve been seeing at my gym for personal training/companionship. (That was just a joke.) But it turns out that it may not be too far off, considering that this next guy is a personal trainer by day and an escort by night. That’s sounds like a pretty full schedule if you ask me. I’m very curious as to which profession came first. Was this guy an escort who decided to become a personal trainer or the other way around? I guess if you really think about it, being a personal trainer would be a great place to find business for your escort services. On the other hand, if you are a trainer and your clients want to sleep with you, becoming an escort makes the most sense.

6 Stretch Armstrong

whisper.sh

Ugh, I feel really gross after reading this next confession. I might have to go take a shower.

At least with the guys who sleep with their clients, the women are consenting. This next guy, however, is just such a total creep. I don’t think that he realizes that the stretching is meant to help his female clients, it’s not an opportunity to rub up on them. So the next time you have a session with your personal trainer, I suggest either one of two things. The first is warming up or stretching on your own time before the actual session. The second is to just not stretch. There are actually many studies that suggest that it’s not good to stretch before physical activity; cold muscles don't like to be pushed and pulled.

5 Shut Up And Drive

whisper.sh

The fact that this next personal trainer is so proud of himself for not giving into his married clients seduction says a lot. Now, I don’t know if this says more about the clients who hire personal trainers or about the personal trainers themselves, but there seems to be an underlying issue. Whether you want to feel bad for this next guy or not, it’s not easy having to turn down someone’s advances. And who wants to have to worry about trying to stay professional every time you have to do your job? It’s nice to know that there are still good people who do this job and who stay professional no matter what.

Someone get this guy a protein shake. This one’s on me.

4 I’m A Flirt

whisper.sh

This next confession is an all too common tale. It’s very easy to flirt when there are no stakes involved. You’re doing your job, you’re in a very comfortable and familiar environment, and most of all, there is absolutely no pressure. However, once you’re outside of your comfort zone, flirting isn’t so easy anymore. Before, you could be suave and debonair, but now, when it counts, you have absolutely no game. This phenomenon can be compared to how when you’re single, girls don’t look at you. However, once you are in a relationship, all girls want you. I wish I knew the reasoning behind these things. The flirting situation can be so frustrating because you know you’re good at it, it’s just the wrong atmosphere.

3 Secrets

whisper.sh

I hate to break it to this next personal trainer, but at this point, that’s probably not a secret to anyone. With all of the “necessary” stretches and exercises and what not, hearing that this trainer secretly wants some of his clients is no big surprise. In fact, I think it would have been more of a secret if this guy were to say that he actually has no interest in any of his clients. The real question here is if this trainer has acted on this secret desire of his. If this guy happens to have any married clients, I would tend to lean towards yes. Then again, for all I know, this guy could be one of the more professional ones. I have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

2 Look Good, Feel Good

whisper.sh

Wait a minute. Is this a confession from a male personal trainer that doesn’t involve looking at, touching, wanting to sleep with, or actually sleeping with their clients?! I don’t know about you, but color me surprised. Moreover, I’m not sure what that says when I’m surprised to hear that a trainer confessed to feeling good when his clients get into shape, instead of it being something sexual, but I’m certainly not upset about it. Actually, it’s quite refreshing. I know I feel good when I workout, so I would imagine that it must feel even better when you help someone else work hard and get into shape. If that isn’t a great reason to want to be a personal trainer then I don’t know what is.

1 Flattering

whisper.sh

Everybody wants to feel good about themselves, right? I don’t think that is something out of the ordinary. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take a compliment any way that I can get it. So I certainly can’t blame this next trainer for being flattered when one of his gay clients started coming onto him. If you are a personal trainer, your body is almost like your business card. That means that you have to be in really great shape to be taken seriously as a personal trainer. So if you are going to go through all of the hard work it takes to have a killer body, how could you not appreciate the flattering comments from people. And it shouldn’t matter what the sexual preference is of the people doing the complimenting.
