You’ve Lost Weight!

Confessions of a Fitness Professional

Behind the smile and motivational cues, lies a trainer who is fed up with your you-know-what.

Chapter Four: You’ve Lost Weight!

Day One

Me: (Wears long pants).

Client:

Day Two

Me: (Wears long pants).

Client:

Day Three

Me: (Wears shorts).

Client: You’ve lost weight!!!

Don’t be that guy.

Weight loss isn’t everyone’s goal. I hadn’t lost any weight. As a matter of fact, my body composition on the day that the client said I’d lost weight had been the same for a very long time. The only thing that changed was that my client saw my legs for the first time. Therefore, I believe that she mistook my muscle for fat.

We shouldn’t assume that every woman who works out wants to lose weight, or that every trainer is in it for the looks. A better compliment would be something like, “Wow, I love your legs” or a simple, “You look great!”
