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.
I just wanted to let you know that I think it’s wonderful that you have developed such a strong connection with your trainer.
From what you have mentioned, it sounds like this is purely a business decision, and although you have a wonderful relationship, it’s not you. I know it’s hard not to take it personally, but his decision does make sense given his relocation plans and the time it would take out of his schedule.
Perhaps you could suggest a remote Skype sort of session? Since he knows how to train you and you have a good connection, it may be worth it to ask…
Sounds like you have been successful with him, so congratulations on your achievements!
