There, Robin loses all signs of her femininity, Marshall gets the trainer from hell, while Lily gets the trainer who wants to nurture other things in her.

He is offended that she doesn't remember him, especially since she at the time told him that he was best sex that she had ever had, and being what many in the neighborhood called "the man maker", she had had many men. Barney is devastated that when she finally does remember who he is, she confesses that Barney's brother James paid her to tell him those things to boost his confidence.

Reality Check
5 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No guy who has a gym membership wants or sticks with a female trainer. Even the guys who aren't interested in bodybuilding still prefer a male trainer for this main reason. While female trainers may have studied anatomy and know fitness, male trainers know better how to train men on how to achieve their goals. And the same goes with the women and female trainers. Not to mention the whole opposite sex angle. If a man is being trained my a hot woman, his mind will probably be focused elsewhere, especially if she dresses in tight workout clothes. And what woman isn't going to check out a ripped male trainer who may be more cut than her man.
