"Trainers Hate Him" is a quote from an online bodybuilding supplement advertisement claiming that personal trainers are frustrated by a man who uses their product. The phrase is often quoted in fitness-related discussion forums in response to implausible claims related to fitness and bodybuilding.


The phrase was first used in a series of advertisements for the Force Factor bodybuilding supplement (shown below) that began appearing online as early as August 2011. The ads typically featured a man with prominent upper body muscles accompanied by a paragraph claiming that "Cambridge scientists" had discovered a powerful new muscle-building supplement.
