really really tough!!! My instructor made me cry today. Real tears! My workplace gym has been going on for almost a year (March 2012). I have been going for all this time and I've gained and lost weight, just never met my goals. I still eat really badly. Lots of carbohydrates, less vegs, lots of sweets. Any time all the time. So about 2 weeks ago, the instructor who supplies the instructors for our gym (they are outsourced from another gym) came by and did our BMI and Body Fat tests. He said that he would be back in December and he wants to see changed results. By the way, my BMI 37.9 was and my body fat was 41.5%
So I have been going 5 days a week and we do aerobics and weights. The instructor (I wouldn't call names) changed his routine and and he has become more difficult. He does his aerobic routine faster and more complex. With little rest. Same for his weight training. He keeps saying that some of us have been here for some time so we should be stronger. He says he is not giving us easy exercises any more. We do aerobics M & W and T, T & F weights (lower body, upper body and total body) . Once I asked him why we can't do aerobics every day and the next day the routine he gave was ridiculous. So I stopped asking or making comments. Every day is difficult.
Today the aerobic routine he did was really hard. He did a basic routine and then he did planks and other body weight exercises. I have a problem in remembering his routines. Usually he does it with us once then twice with calling out the movements. I have tried but I do not know how to remember a routine. Today after everything I broke down and cried. It was so hard and he is making it difficult because he thinks we slack off. But how to make him understand. I weigh 231 lb right now and after 10 - 15 minutes of his routine I get tired. I struggle. Its the same with the weights. Last Friday, our lower body routine consisted of side squats on a step (each side), squats (two types, one with bar bells and sumo) plus back lunges. After which we did leg curls on the machine, crunches and lunges. Each movement 25 reps and 4 sets of each. Needless to say I was weak on Friday.
He does not understand that I am the heaviest client in the gym so I would not do stuff as fast as he would want or the movements as precise. He is making the gym not fun. Today while I was crying I was wondering what to do, how to come here every day and take this what he is giving us.
I know that I have been at the same weight, if not higher since last year March 2012!! I know. But doesn't coming to the gym count for nothing!! I eat badly and for the past three days I have cleaned up my act because I am tired of this weight. However he is making it had for me and I hate hard. I tend to quit when things get hard. I really do not expect a free pass or not to work to lose the weight but why is he doing this? How to deal with him. I am so not happy right now!!!
