Am I wrong in thinking that you're supposed to have a training buddy so as you train better and safer? I would think they would encourage this as a good example.

When weight lifting and pushing your limits, it's definitely better to have a workout buddy and makes it so much easier. It's kind of hard to push your limits when you don't have one.

It sounds to me like they were just looking for an excuse to fire you op. If op was training his friend during his off time (which is none of their business what he does during his personal time) he probably wouldn't be stupid enough to do it at the club he works at. He would probably do it somewhere else. Ya, I think they were just looking for a reason op. Sorry. :(

I semi agree, it does look a wee bit dodgy. That's presuming that the OP was giving their friends tips, if not then all good! Plus the OP probably doesn't have to pay to use the gym as a work perk so they're using a perk of the job to potentially help a friend.

I haven't seen any place like that. All the gyms I've been to you get the choice of a personal trainer or not. I just workout with my boyfriend cause you have to pay more for the personal trainer.

No... But Planet Fitness will kick you out for grunting or being too attractive, so it's not exactly a stretch to see nonsense like that in the future. And personal trainers do cost money because they aren't there working for free. But they can be really beneficial if you are newer to working out or helping you reach specific goals because they can program your workouts to be exactly what you need them to be.

I agree that it's not their business what op does on his off time. But if he was training his friends at his place of business then that would be wrong (and just plain stupid) and I could see why he would be fired. But op clearly wasn't doing that and was just working out with a friend. Every workout buddy spots the other and gives pointers and encouragement, doesn't mean they're getting paid and actually "training" them.
