Post Personal what you preach?

As a trainer, what do you do in order to make your lifestyle easier day to day? Do you practice what you preach? For example, I preach to clients to be prepared with meals to help them stay on track. I show them by packing my meals for the day and bringing it to work with me, knowing I won't...

Giving Nutritional Advice??

How do you keep your integrity as a trainer?

90% of PTs I see get clients to do half squats, not touch their chest when they bench and do endless fluff exercises. Is it that they just don't know what they're doing or is their some sort of monetary pressure causing them to do this? If so how do you keep your integrity?
