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 totally understand what you are going through, after being in the industry for nearly 2 decades, personally have come across lot of clients & trainers .
Sorry for being blunt with my answer kindly take it good spirit.As with the clients discontinuing a trainer for variety of reasons, trainers too will come to point in their career, that some clients are difficult to handle/get motivated etc due to trainers location, other commitments etc. Training to progress there should be mutual good energy and PR , however as professional he should refer you to another trainer ,after your approval he can discuss your previous plans with the new trainer so you can continue the progress.
Eg: I have to let go of clients who I’ve trained for more than 10years 3-4 times a week and refer them to other trainers, and also clients who got really good results for years have stopped taking sessions coz they didn’t feel the same energy/ since they have reach the results they don’t see the point in investing etc..etcc. is a 2 two way street
Be thankful to the positive changes he made in your life , keep moving forward
