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 completely understand your feelings. This is an unfortunate situation. And it sounds like your trainer is in need of some sensitivity and professionalism training. Not that he should drive the hour to work with you. But he should be at least helping you find a replacement trainer or working with you to find some middle ground.
Perhaps he doesn’t realize how this appears to you or others. I would recommend that you try to let it go. I know it is insulting and that it stings. But you can be the bigger person here and just move on. I am sure that you could find an excellent trainer in your area. And you should talk to someone who understands this type of situation and can help you get past it. A close friend, your clergy person, or anyone you trust and respect. I wish you all the best.
