Get a bunch of "personal trainers" who don't know the difference between their triceps and triceptosaurus, get them to teach unsuspecting aunties how to squat/deadlift, and BOOM! Instant disc hernia and torn meniscus.

i saw one very bad deadlifts 2 weeks ago. that poor fellow obviously cannot handle the weights and the trainer juz stand there ask him do, the form was totally out and positioning is all wrong... i pity him:s13:

SWF - Opposite leisure dome

My route pratically is expo tampines punggol daily.
Actually I've joined FF already, thinking of switching to TF but the review is not that nice.. Previously the gym above the sushi place at tampines. Nevertheless I'm going to try the free trial if there is any one of these days..

Got one at FF. You can try if you wanted it. They will do it if you come for free trial the first time. But to make it accurate, don't eat or exercise before you use the machine. Sometimes can be error.

Yes they do. You have to rent it monthly. I think 20$ if not mistaken.

Here's an idea - if they wish to progress, learn the proper way of performing these movements, master them, and then teach them to their clients once they have a clue.

I get your point, and I understand they're jumping on the bandwagon. After all functional training was bandied about 2yrs ago and people in the know hardly make a point of it anymore.

But as with the masses, these things take a while and this is still a step towards bringing such ideas to the mass consciousness.

We ARE a very very niche subset of the fitness community compared to the masses.

Yes this is the Viper I saw at TF. Comes in 10kg and 20kg.

Besides those functional movement, PTs have their clients 'flip tyre' using the 10kg one. :s13:
