I am a PT with over 20years experience working at a club where there is a gym instructor/newly qualified PT...who I think is essentially a really nice person, however he is extremely socially awkward and perhaps on the spectrum. He occassionally asks questions about my clients that I really can't discuss with him because of client confidentiality. The other day, whilst I was doing a training session with my client, the instructor approached my client and asked if I was "looking after" her. This my client smiled and replied that I was making her work hard. I asked this instructor if he was okay, to which he then turned to me and asked if I was looking after my client. To which I smiled at him and asked him, "what do you think?" Now I believe in being kind to people, but it made me quite cross that not only was this instructor interrupting my session but also what he said. I don't think for one minute he meant to be annoying or questionning my ability as a PT. I could be wrong but I think it was more that he was looking for somewone to talk to as he was bored. In all my years as a PT I have never interrupted a training session that is taking place and would never say what this instructor did. I feel like I am sweating the small stuff but can anyone tell me what you think or would have done. I have contemplated having a friendly word with the instructor just to enlighten him on training etiquette but surely in his training this is something he should already know???
