FBB personal trainers who train men?

Aug 22, 2021 - edited Aug 24, 2021 - permalink

Anyone know of FBBs who train men (non-bodybuilding) and coach hard? Anyone had previous experience with being coached by a FBB? Any who train men in their own gym?

Most of them who do coach aren't picky about their clients, but if you're going in expecting it to be some kind of gym themed domination/humiliation thing, you're going to have a bad time.

Yeah the wording of the title is a dead giveaway of the OP's intention. Follow loozer's advice and don't sound like a creep in front of them. Example of what not to say:

"Excuse me, I was wondering if you are willing to train weak men such as myself. You are sooo much stronger than me, and I bet you are stronger than most men."

Perhaps that is not your intention, in which case that's a good thing (these aren't sessions). But it is regardless a strange way to phrase your title if that's the case.

I understand what Mikki meant. Some female coaches/personal trainers don't train men. I know a few straight women who are open about this. I believe it is to prevent either falling in love with their clients/ mess up the business/money.

It's not good for business then. Same thing with male coaches/personal trainers.

Yes correct. It is different teaching people in a educational or Zumba classroom/gym environment, where you can teach all gender and leave when the session is over. With bodybuilding/personal training, you have to be in the gym with the person, inspect and look at their body parts, comment about the parts, touch it, sometimes text or talks to one another on the phone, and if she decides to compete, you may have to travel together and stay at the same hotel etc. When she is dressed in her competitive bikini with high heels and you see that hairless genital area, with those vein lines popping near her holiest of holy holes, it would take an apostle not named Judas to refrain from wanting to hit it.

So there is a reason why some coaches choose not to work with the opposite sex, and women are predominately the ones who reject the chance to work with men.

If my trainer /coach looked like that, I am hitting.

out of curiosity i asked kristina parks about this, "accidentally". i say accidentally because i was asking if i could train one day with her and not be trained by her, which is how she took it.

she said she doesn't train men--not sure if this meant in person specifically or more generally. i gather that many women (fbbs specifically) won't train men, especially if they suss out that you have the fetish. granted, she knows i do and that's probably why her answer, but i genuinely like training with people (every once in a while).

previously i have done training for a few months with dani reardon and alexis castro, and maybe 6 months or so with a woman whose name I can't recall for about 6 months when i was more into crossfit. remote training is definitely something they should be offering to both unless guys get creepy. i had a video deal going on with dani at the time but kept those requests separate from any training talk.

additionally you can go on instagram and see that a lot of pros do train men, but they tend to be fairly serious about their fitness goals. and i don't tend to see them leave weird comments

Personal trainer is not a sessionette per se, there are guys out there who creep out the ladies.

I remember reading somewhere years ago that Vicki Gates was involved in strength training and helping NFL draftees to put on more muscle and weight. She invited LSU DLineman, Mingo, into her home to get him big and muscular.

I know Paige Sandgren has her program. I was working with her only for a little while ( then COVID hit) but can recommend it with all my heart, she is amazing!

I once knew a professionell FBB. A real, real fat guy applied as her workout client. I could see that he booked her just to satisfy his muscle fetish. Because they trained together once a week for about two hours. Beside the workout day, he bomarded the FBB with WhatsApps, mostly asking real stupid stuff. His biggest success was that the FBB asked him to be her driver to a competition.

I was quite jealous, because he got so much contact for a price of less than 100 Euro/month. To save his honour I have to admit that he lost lots of weight in their cooperation time!

Surely 99% of PTs are happy to take on "Lifestyle Clients" of any gender? Maybe some of them would concede they did not have the requisite experience/knowledge to train a client of the opposite gender for high level competition. I've considered visiting muscular FBB PTs as a client in order to get the foot in the door for a session but decided it would be a dick move. Trouble is with modern world is so many do coaching online, you'd look hopelessly weird and outdated expecting some in-person training.

I have got a buddy who is a PT told me his former clients older/married women would flirt/hit on him. They would act normal at first but after a few weeks/months they would start to flirt with him, ask him to come round etc stopped training women as result.

I guess the same would happen with female personal trainers training men can lead to very awkward situations. Probably why most don’t bother training regular men.
