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.
Hello Eileen Mulcaire,
That can be very disappointing; I am sure he is sorry to lose you as a client, also.
I wonder if you could change something in your schedule to continue working with him if you are that happy with the training. Have you two sat down to troubleshoot this situation? Be open, upfront and honest about your feelings and the two of you may come up with a solution. Let him know to please keep you in mind if things change.
Maybe he could make a notebook of workouts for you to follow or you could travel to him as Sue D’Alonzo suggests.
I agree that there are many great trainers on this site to choose from if you need another trainer. You can think of it as making more friends.
