Yeah, I never gave advice to another trainer unless they specifically asked for it. It makes people feel defensive.
I know what you mean about having your shirt on and if you don't, that's why say "I'm a trainer here". I also think that's why it's to ask them if you can give them a tip. That way, if they say yes but feel defensive about it, it's NOT your problem.
