    I LOVE your “types of trainers”! SO TRUE! You hit the nail on the head, sista!

    The one that I really appreciated, because no one seems to talk about this type, is the “i’m a Doctor, so I know everything” type. Don’t get me wrong…I have much respect for MD’s…but I have trained more than a few over the years, and a few of ’em would try to tell me how to run things. For example, one had knee issues…had had surgery before…and I was going to have him do miniband lateral walks…obviously nothing that would do anything more than help the knee b/c of improving hip strength. Anyhow, he told me “I don’t think that’s a good idea,” so, I “bent” a little bit and found a suitable substitute. What really irks me is the fact that MDs DO have a ton of schooling, and yes, they know about the body…but as far as functional anatomy is concerned, they really don’t know squat.

    Thanks for another great post, Tera!

    Yours in Health,
