Hi Marcia,Thank you for your comments. I have been a pnasoerl trainer for over 13 years now. For the first 5-8 years, although my heart was in the right place, I wasn’t a very good one. The knowledge and tools which most pnasoerl trainers are given is very limited. It is pervasive throughout the industry and is true throughout the health, wellness and fitness industries. We are taught how to train with the same mentality I discussed in this blog. To train to our clients strengths. As a coach, I know the reasons for this quite well. It comes from the fear of losing our clients and business. If we train to our clients weaknesses, they will feel clumsy and weak. Most clients don’t want to feel that way. They want to feel strong, but are not educated about what it really takes to actually get strong. When it comes to hiring a pnasoerl trainer, massage therapist, doctor, PT, or any other health, wellness professional, I highly encourage my clients to spend the extra time to interview multiple people, ask for references of those who were helped that had similar issues as you, and call them before hiring anyone. If my clients, during my first few years of training, took these kinds of actions, it would have either forced me to become better at my job faster, or I would have ended up in another career. Did you read through the postural series that I wrote? I have several articles up with some basic corrective exercises which will help you get moving in the direction you want.Jesse James Retherford
