    Head trainer pulled me aside after I'd finished my set and my training partner started his.

    Him "You can't train people here. You can train with people and do your workout with them but you can't outright train them."
    Me: "What the fuck do you think I've been doing the last fucking hour?"
    Him "Hey. Look, you don't have to use that type of language."
    Me: "Well you didn't have to be a fucking asshole and bother me. Why didn't you take 15 min of your precious time to watch what I was doing before bothering me? So fuck off." (Pretty much verbatim.)
    Him "I can suspend your membership, you know."

    Anyway, my training partner jumped in and after abit settled things down.
    Had just recieved some pretty bad news earlier in the week so was really stressed. First time in a long while I actually lost it.
    So far my membership hasn't been suspended at least. And its been a few days.

    Funny thing is later he came back and he shook my hands and said something to the effect..."Its just that you're in good shape."
    I rarely ever do lose it anymore nor do I really even swear much. Pretty laid back most of the time.
    I know I over reacted but man, it was just the wrong time.

    By the way, the stress was with my family. I'd heard that my brother and his family was in a serious car accident while visiting China. After almost two weeks, they're finally getting released from the hospital. Sister in law has a broken leg and brother had some severe head injuries and will have to undergo some reconstructive surgery but again is finally getting released.

    :hug: I'm sorry :( hope they recovery quickly.

    And yeah- I've heard several stories of uppity territorial trainers like that. Cocksuckers- like there isn't an obvious difference between working out with someone and training them :mad:

    :sadwavey: sorry to hear that, hopefully they get better.

    And it was messed up from the trainer to say that to you, i mean if you have a membership, and if the person your with has a membership, who the fuck cares?

    Well, if there's something I like about college gym it's the fact that PTs don't give a fuck about you unless you ask them something. I wanted to find one today to ask him about the opening hours next week and I couldn' find one for like 30 min.
    Sorry about your family too.

    People who work at gyms are high school drop outs who make $7.25 an hour. I wouldn't take them seriously.

    I correct the trainers when they're doing something stupid. No problems here. Now they come over to me when they're trying to get a client to do something like deadlift, overhead press, etc.

    I've gotten that same shit when working out with people like you were doing. I told him to fuck his mother and to sue me if its a problem. Haven't been bothered since.

    Thanks everyone. I really appreciate it.

    I admit the last two weeks I had quite a few emo moments in real life.

    As I said my brother is being released Monday and so they're flying back next Wednesday. Apparently skin grafting has to be performed on my brother's forehead I belive but they have to wait a month or two to make sure he's properly healed on his own. Somewhat fortunate thing is the cab company has foot all their expenses as well as given them a settlement for any more medical care here in Canada. They were in a cab when the accident happened. Their driver had dozed off at the wheel and they were struck by a bus. They were all unconscious when they were brought to the hospital. Considering the nature of the accident it was really fortunate also that my brother's two kids (ages 3 and 7) had only superficial injuries.
