I've been trying to figure out what bothers me about this picture, and your point is high on my list.
This doesn't look like a personal training session to me. The photo needs to show something happening - this one to me shows two people too close together talking.
Thanks so much for the responses. I'll post some more shortly and put it to a vote.
This picture is unappealing for me. It looks a little to personal. During training touch is one thing but the touch in this photo seems off.
This is the current primary picture. Let me know your thoughts.
I’ve worked with personal trainers before. One advantage to using one is that they can adjust your form if your back isn’t straight, for example, or in the case of the lunge pictured they can point out if your knee is going forward too far.
I think a stronger and more accurate picture would be if the client was facing forward. Then the correcting hand on the knee makes more sense.
