  • Telling people you dont want to train them?

    Ok as crazy as this sounds, I've got people asking me to train them. Yea ridiculous isnt it. Me a small guy being asked by other people to train them. The thing is when i talk to people i'm all about bodybuilding and nutrition. And they've seen the changes my body has been through in the past 3 or 4 years. So they come asking for advice.

    Now i have some friends asking me to personal train them, some want to gain size, others want to lose weight. The problem is, i dont want to do this at this point in time. Why? Well because i'm not blind, i can see that even though i have learned alot i have FAR MORE to learn before i can begin to help people. I mean before i can train others i must first see the effects on myself.

    So what i'm asking is, how do i say no? I really dont like to be hated, and dont want to let people down, but knowing that im not ready for this type of responsibility, i have to say no.
    How?

    Sounds to me like you already have your answer. Say it to them just like you said it here. If they are friends they will understand. I respect the fact that you are able to see this in yourself.

        Then tell them no!

                In-Human. Someone with your knowledge and experience would have no problem training people. And i hear you about them wanting it. I tried to actually push my cousin to train in the DC style for a while. But i cant help him unless he wants it.

                If a person isnt willing to eat a certain way and give 100% everytime, then theres no point.

                    Someone was telling me personal training people now could be good because i could make portfolios of my friends to show progress. but going back to my points and in-humans points. Im not at that point yet, and they just dont seem dedicated enough.
