Dating and Training

So I have recently gotten a part-time job at a gym (actually I work 39.9 hours a week) and am taking my ISSA CFT course to get certified. At this gym, they still allow me to train clients, but obviously for a much lower rate.

Anyways, a few days ago I was talking with a girl, as it’s my job to be friendly and social, and she decides to give me her number. We talk today, and decide to set up a date.

And then she asks if I want to be her personal trainer.

Part of me is like “this is fucking hot and I seen it in a porno once”, and the other part of me is thinking that this could be a major conflict of interest. She kind of put me in a tough spot with that one.

Does anyone have any advice? I want to be professional about this, and I don’t want to fuck up my personal training before it begins. On the other hand… porno…

Lol.

EDIT:

By the way, my reply was, “I think we should see each other a few times first”

Meet her outside of the gym, and bang her if she’s game. Don’t be her personal trainer. Keep business and pleasure separate. Just my two cents.

I agree. She kind of put me on the spot with that one. Actually it turned me off. But we’ll see how the first date goes.

Fuck her and train her

All the ass you get is the only thing that makes working at a gym worthwhile

Strap up brother

Interesting. Now we have one person suggesting to remain professional, and another that apparently seen the same porno that I seen.

I think my best bet is seeing her for a while before I decide on any training. I’m not above having sex with a client, but I’m concerned with getting in any sort of trouble if I decide to stop seeing her and she decides to make a stink about it.

Doesn’t the risk outweigh the reward a little bit with that one?

That’s your problem right there. You’re a trainer…these gym girls fuck trainers…not date them.

You’re just a new toy. That’s all you’ll ever be.

If you want a relationship find it elsewhere. Gym are for sex and

Don’t you recognize when a woman only wants to sit on your dick but is trying to be covert about it?

Oh and NWO is coming back to WWE with CM Punk as leader

Actually, he directed it.

Dude, if you want to be an actual professional, you don’t bang clients. Actually, you don’t bang chicks at the gym you work at, period. There are very few professional personal trainers. I’m not one, but I use one for my knee rehab, and being a pro in any job or industry requires not shagging coworkers and clients.

Regarding the first half of your post. Honestly, I’m not the type of person to care much about getting ass. Besides, this isn’t a bar, it’s a gym. I disagree that gyms are for sex.

Regarding the nWo, rest assured the the WWE will fuck that up. I think that CM Punk is absolutely amazing in the ring and on the mic, and that he is perfect material to bring back the nWo, but the WWE fucks everything up. Look at the Nexus angle. That angle was amazing and despite them putting Punk into it, they completely fucked it up.

I agree for the most part, after sitting on it for a while I have decided to trust my instincts. I am in a good place to do something I love (work at a gym and work with others), and the hell if I should fuck that up. I don’t really want to train this girl.

But I won’t hesitate to hang out with people that I meet at the gym. Like I mentioned above, I don’t care much for getting random ass, I’d much rather meet quality people. How will I know if she is worth a shit unless we hang out a few times.

In fact, the same thing goes for guys that you meet there. No, I am not gay, but I’ve met some cool powerlifters that have made me consider competing alongside them in meets, as well as some guys that I grapple with.
