insane I think.
I wouldn't be suprised if the trainer did tell them this, there are a lot of bad trainers out there (which is why you have to know how to tell a good trainer from a bad trainer when you're looking for one to hire!). But I think it's just as likely that this is what the person THOUGHT the trainer told them to do. Some trainers aren't very clear in what they're trying to advise, and some people assume the worst and don't ask questions. I'd ask that person if the trainer actually demonstrated the technique, and if not, why didn't he ask the trainer to demo?
