One of my biggest pet peeves is a workout instructor who looks like s/he doesn't work out. I mean come on, an untoned instructor or trainer is supposed to inspire me to work hard? You know these people, they look like they haven't seen the inside of a gym or a pilates studio in ages and yet, you're meeting them in one--you should be training them or teaching the class, not vice versa.
I don't get it. How do gyms hire these instructors who don't seem to be in shape? How can these out of shape instructors bring in new clients? It makes no sense.
