I have trained with this trainer since last Dec. I have gone 2x a week, and rarely, if ever cancel. I follow his program, eat right, treat him very respectfully, and thought that we had a very good relationship. My timeslot is 7 – 8PM, and he is moving an hour away from the gym in Jan. His first client is at 5AM. I understand that it is inconvenient to be his only evening client, but I would think that he would try to offer some sort of solution to continue the relationship. He has done nothing, and I am really annoyed.
Or maybe you could ask him if he is willing to do a once a month training with you, just to check in with you to keep you on track. And pay him for his commute time to do so.
Or find him another client who could train right before or right after you once a week, guaranteeing him 2 hours back to back, plus you will pay more for his gas and time. Not all of us do what we do because of the money. There are timeslots I will NOT train. But it is possible he may be financially motivated.
