    At the same time, I hate him. At least I know I will next time I see him, but then again, it will only be the pain talking. I just hope I don't get too serious trying to hit that last rep. ahah.

    What's your relationship with your PT, or your relationship with your client?

    I have a great relationship with my trainer. I know so many gay guys who will only be trained by or strongly PREFER to be trained by other gay guys. I thought that is silly. Anyway, my trainer is straight, and we have so much fun together. We talk about his women troubles as well as my man troubles. Sometimes he'll say something and I just burst out laughing in the middle of a set and I have to put the weights down. We make fun of each other too.... Really makes the session a lot better, that I have someone who pushes me but who can take a little pushing back too! Even if its in jest. lol.

    I complain a lot while he tortures me - ahem - trains me. And he deals with it without getting annoyed. Something I definitely can appreciate. I'll be sad when I have to stop training with him later this year, due to me moving away for a year for work.....

    Ahah, you know we love you. I don't see how anyone can't be friends with theirs. They break you down completely and build you right back up. This is just an appreciation thread for PTs who don't hear it enough. icon_smile.gif

    @ZbmwM5 lol nice. it's a shame you're moving but at least you had an awesome run with a pretty cool guy (from what I read). Maybe he'll still be there after a year aha

    KSUOWL need a PT? ;) There are quite a few good ones on here aha

    In the last 10 years, I've had two private trainers and four gym-based trainers. I had to dump each private trainer. Each had, after a while, become unreliable. I know they all aren't. It was just my luck. I'll never chance my money and time on another. My current gym trainer is a young guy in his first full year of work. Without a lot of experience yet, he comes nevertheless directly out of the latest health and fitness education from a highly reputable college (George Brown, for those in Ontario, Canada). So he's up on all the latest REAL study and science. With 30 years separating us in age, we don't have a lot in common to talk about during workouts, but he's energetic, enthusiastic, not a part-timer -- this is his chosen career, not just something to do. So, I'm very happy. And getting results!
