    that would also count out many male trainers. I think it is about fitness level over actual weight. Of course you can't put a 200lb person on a small pony, based on your "name" I am assuming you...

    I have noticed that with age, I have had to cross train (I do yoga/pilates) to stay in the condition I need to be in to do my job. I think it's funny you think it's "fair" that you be in the same...

    3. I hate...
