That is incredibly rude! A good personal trainer would know when to approach someone and when not to.

We’re you at a “big box” gym like LA Fitness? Their PTs are super aggressive and I understand it’s annoying. Sure, he could have picked a better time, but he probably figuredd he’d try and talk to you while you were “captive” on your treadmill. Do what I do: put on a straight face and never make eye contact or respond. Yes, it’s rude, and he’s only trying to make some money, but those types of gyms/trainers try and intimidate women, in particular.

Wow. Yeah, that’s annoying. I hated the PT pitch I had to get to sign up at the gym and refuse to use my “free PT” session because I know it’s going to be an hour straight with someone trying to pitch me the whole time. (Not to mention, from the few things we DID speak about, I didn’t get the impression that the trainer was well informed anyway.)

Climbing on my treadmill though? Yeah, I just got back from a war zone so homeboy would be lucky if I didn’t just deck him out of reflex. I’d definitely complain about it to a manager though. If he distracted you in a sprint, you could have gotten thrown off and seriously hurt. I.e., GIANT liability for the gym.

WOW! What an *a**hole!

I’d make a formal complaint to the gyms management. I wouldn’t let go of something like this.

@FutureCuomo6610:  I agree talk to the manager and let them know that there was a better opportunity for the PT to talk to you other than during intervals. If he was a good PT he would know not to interrupt/distract a person working out.

That’s annoying! I’d be surprised at any success he gets with his methods.
