In Arizona, I registered for the personal training program at LA Fitness Union Hills (Pro Results) and the trainer I had was absolutely one of the most misinformed people I have ever worked with. Not only did he seem distracted half the time he was working with me, but he also didn't even follow through on some of the stipulations of our agreement.
He never outlined a structured, weekly diet, only took my measurements once, and insisted on training me on a limited number of machines. I attempted to request that we work out on certain machines and he just gave me a bunch of contrary excuses as to why we needed to stay on the same weight lifting machines. I think the reality is that he just didn't have the knowledge base, yet the company had no problem charging me $50 for each half hour training session.
Also, I found employees at this gym very impersonable and at times rude, and, although subtle, made it clear that they didn't want to be bothered with idle requests or demands.
