As loyal readers know, there are some sketchy ass “personal trainers” out there.  These trainers get their certification online in a weekend, spout out scientifically inaccurate information, choose dangerous, ineffective, and/or inappropriate exercises for their clients, and spend more time looking at their biceps in the mirror than watching their clients.
