Personal Trainer Tells 25-Stone Woman She’s ‘Way Too Heavy’ For Gym Class


A personal trainer told a 25-stone woman she was not allowed to join his bootcamp class because she was ‘way too heavy’. Lisa Parratt was left humiliated when the instructor said in a Facebook group chat he recognised her from the gym and that she was ‘just too big’ for his class. The 33-year-old, from Market Harborough, Leicestershire, joined Slimming World in January and has lost two stone so far. She signed up to her local gym, where personal trainer Gary Randall – who goes by the name Buffmaster – is also a member. Feeling motivated after the weight loss, she decided to join a bootcamp class to boost her confidence and get her health in check to ‘be the best version of myself that I can be’.
