That's your first mistake, and I'm not being sexist really, and completely serious. Two different sexes and bodytypes man. That was a bad idea.
That's like me wanting to hit my 400lb bench press this offseason and working out with my girlfriend... prolly not gunna happen, she dont know shit and isnt going to be able to push me or spot me...
Go hire another trainer.
That's making quite an assumption... A female trainer could easily be qualified, and possibly more qualified than a male to train another male. Sex means nothing in terms of knowledge and educational status. Would I typically agree with you that a man should seek a male trainer in typical gym atmospheres? Sure. But I wouldn't say that a woman is unqualified to train a male, and I probably recommend you to seek a trainer at a typical gym either.
Muscle is muscle, and as long as they understand what it takes to promote growth anyone can have success.
