About a dozen blogs ago, I wrote about how my trainer took my measurements with strands of rope. I remedied that situation by purchasing an extra long tape measure for him. He wasn't in when I dropped it off, but next time I saw him, I mentioned it.

He is a little oblivious, and still doesn't see why using a rope is wrong. That part is immaterial, but I did try to explain to him how it could be perceived as humiliating to some people and that it is much better to use a tape measure. He was willing to use it, and maybe over time, he gets it, or maybe he doesn't it, but at least where I am concerned, I spoke up for myself, and handled it.

In my humble opinion, it was a very civil thing to do, and maybe I helped someone else down the road be treated a little more humanely. That was my goal anyway.

I am happy with myself.

    Your trainer may be in shape physically, but he has some brain muscle that needs some work! Good for you for speaking up!

    Way to go for handling it how you did! He sounds like one of the biggest idiots ever, but if it helps prevent the same treatment to others by him, then you did well :)

    My personal opinion is that trainers often care more about looks than feelings.
The 2 people I know that became trainers did it to spend more time in the gym with their favorite person-themselves. (Lots of mirrors I think!)
This guy sounds like a blockhead, but hopefully because of your patience and ability to work with dense mass, the next person won't have to go through what you did.
Don't give up Mar, I am sure he is trainable.

Hugs,

    Good for you! It would humiliate me if he used a rope instead of the tape measure.

Keep up the good work and much success on your journey!
