When your car isn't running properly, who do you go see? The mechanic.
When your toilet is broken, who do you call? The plumber.
When you have questions about training yourself, who do you ask? Joe, 3 cubicles over from you.
So, we have no identified the problem. Who do you ask? People tend to gravitate towards different personalities for many reasons. Some people (lets use guys as an example), will go ask the "biggest" guy in their office for advice. Some will ask the "biggest" guy in the gym, or more commonly, whoever is benching the most weight. In my gym, we don't have a lot of strong guys, so seeing someone bench 225 is a shock to many people. The biggest bencher or the guy doing the weirdest exercises will be the one to get asked for advice most often. We have one of each in my gym, and neither guy knows anything. One just regurgitates everything he read about his hot new TRX workout, or the HDT sets he is doing, or the sick new KB workout he has going on. Guess what? That guy can't even deadlift his own bodyweight. Bench press guy? Literally the only thing he can do. Never even seen him do a pullup. So why do people gravitate towards them?
I have no clue. Maybe because they are free? Maybe because we are pre-conditioned to think that trainers are always just trying to sell you a session. We have a lot of trainers at my gym, and pretty much all of them are qualified to help. But, not all trainers are created equal. Everyone has their own personality, and not every one will mesh with every client. So, when you have questions, go ask a trainer. If you don't like their answer, ask a different one. Ask at the front desk about everyones backgrounds. See who interests you. LOOK at the trainers. If you think "Wow, I want to look like that tall, handsome, half-Chinese guy with the cannonball delts", then go ask him! Best case scenario, you get some great advice (*ahem* go deadlift *ahem*), and worst case scenario the guy turns out to be a jerk who only wants to sell you a session.
What this really boils down to is, stop trying to be so macho and go ask someone a question. You might just learn something.
