Gym instructors.

Post  teamplayer2 on Tue Sep 17, 2013 3:08 pm

Here I am a member of a Gym I go to at Link4life trying to get fit again. I know I have been here before.

I was just amused by an instructor giving out instruction to a punter in the gym and the benefits of getting fit and losing weight. Only to see the same instructor outside in the car park after smoking in front of a group of children passing by.

Do the managers who run the gym ever take note of what the staff are doing?Rolling Eyes

Telling us all how we should all get fit and healthy but they do the opposite.No

They aren't responsible for anyone but themselves TP. If you want to get fit then do it regardless.

It's their job to instruct people.  What they do at breaks, lunches, end of their working day is their own business as to how they treat their own bodies.


Also I wouldn't bet against the children you refer to not taking a drag of the dreaded weed.

I don't know the man or his medical history etc etc but there is a school of thought that would say he may do more harm to himself (inadvertently) by giving up the smoking. It quite often depends on whether or not he then supplements the lack of nicotine, by giving it up, with something even more harmful. Foods or other drugs etc. And I would agree with the previous two comments - it's his life - providing he doesn't go around pontificating the evils of the noxious weed to others at the same time.Wink Very Happy

Providing that the guy is not advising people to smoke as part of a health programme I don't see the problem.

You can't dictate to people how to live their lives, government is already doing enough of that Neutral
