First Blog Post

Hi everyone

So this is my first ever blog post, so go easy on me.

I thought I’d start by sharing first world problems that I/personal trainers/coaches get.

As some of you may know, I’m very much into my cars, recently I met a friend for coffee, afterwards we decided to look around a main dealer car garage, we were there for around 40 minutes looking at various cars, and not one salesman came up to us to see if we needed any help. My friend had actually just received inheritance, so had the deal been right, we could’ve bought a car that day.

I can only put this down to what we were wearing, the usual tracksuit bottoms and sports hoody, if we were dressed differently, do you think they may have come up and spoke to us?

I like to think I look professional and some of the clothes Inwear are actually branded, but I do you get the feeling you get prejudged by people wearing these clothes, I generally get the feeling that people look down upon me or won’t talk to me in public because of what I am wearing, shop assistants even are less welcoming. Its such a sad thing that people prejudge someone like that.

I wonder how many people have lost business or even friends they could’ve had, just because they’ve prejudged someone on what they’re wearing and look like, Or you do talk to someone because someone has told you, ‘they’re actually a really nice person’

Anyway, let me know what you think.

  1. All to true sadly mate. Im sure there is a big socilogical research article out there somewhere on it proving it. I normally where tracky bottoms or jeans up and down the high street and quite often look chav 🙂 lol, but tbh walking round in either running or cycling clothes most of the time people look at you odd strange anyhow so kinda used to it. but yes, ignorant people will pre-jusdge. At Chiro college we discovered a moto very quickly to live by “Never assume anything”, unfortunately people assume too much these days.

  2. Good first effort mate! Chris Evans, the DJ, went to the Ferrari showroom at lyndhurst and being his usual casually dressed self, had a similar problem to you guys! It’s their loss!

  3. Great that you’ve started to blog – keep it coming! Surprised they served you a coffee dressed inappropriately:0). The test will be to meet again – go back – or to a different dealer – dressed a little bit more as though you aren’t just ‘killing time’ but have purpose and see what the reaction is.
