Default Personal trainer put my wife in the hospital

My wife decided to try my personal trainer and after one leg workout with him she ended up in the hospital for a wk with Rhabdomyolysis. I don't want to sue anybody but I feel he should at least pay the deductable. He trained her way to hard for never lifting weights in her life. Am I wrong for at least asking for him to pay deductable?

You wouldn't be wrong for having him pay the whole bill.

Let me guess, cross fit?

This. Most likely.

This is on you and your wife. If something is uncomfortable, stop. They can't feel your body for you.

Is she on a Statin type medication such as Lipitor (atrovastatin)?

Dr said it is a direct result of heavy weight lifting. The trainer had her doing 90lb leg extensions. No waiver was ever signed. Trainer new exactly how long she would be in hospital which tells me he has seen this before with his clients. Trainers try to overwork you the first few times so you feel you are extremely out of shape and continue to come back.

Or the trainer learned that in school.

Your trainer doesn't have the "scale" ? mine on the first day before we started anything told me that when he asked where I am at to rate 1-10... anything above 9 we stop and walk around until I am back to around a 7...

Don't see how she could get anywhere near a full 90lb leg extension yet alone first time lifting.

Gotta go with this. I'm in the gym every day and that is an awful lot of weight for that exercise.

Um...devils advocate, but since he's "your trainer", you knew this going in and still sent your wife to him. Seems kinda harsh to expect him to pay for an injury caused by precisely what you should've expected.

Perhaps the 90lbs was on a leg press?

I've never been to a gym where they didn't make you sign a liability waiver. My guess is you're stuck with the bill

I have been a fitness nut for a long time, from heavy lifting to marathons to crossfit. 90lbs is a LOT of weight on leg extensions for someone that has never worked out before. I am not even sure how she lifted it all!

I know it sucks but I am not sure you have much to go on against the trainer. As someone else said they cannot "feel" for the individual, they have to tell the trainer "no" or "this hurts" and stop.

I hope she makes a full recovery.

IIRC Rhabdomyolisis is a condition that can be triggered from traumatic events or sports injuries...so while it was triggered by her exercising, you'll have a hard time saying it was solely the trainer's fault. It's unfortunate and I hope your wife recovers and feels better.
