Back in 2008, as a new trainer at Bally Total Fitness, we had to get our own clients. Almost like a hawk watching its prey, we would scour the gym floor looking for members who appeared to need professional assistance. For me, they were easy to spot. They would be wandering around the gym aimlessly, hopping from machine to machine without a plan. Or they would be on a machine kind of working out, but not really challenging themselves. Or they would be in the gym waaaay too long, making a point to complete every exercise ever invented for whichever body part they were working that day. You see, they were there to reach a particular goal, but they were not really maximizing their time in the gym.
