Default Fitness trainer etiquette question

So, I work out once a week with a trainer. He owns the company and has three trainers that work for him. Lately, I just don't feel challenged enough. I have discussed it with him, but things just seem to be stagnant. A few weeks back, he couldn't train me so I worked out with a new guy he recently hired. He kicked my butt! In a good way. I think his style of training is more of what I need. What is the best way to tell my current guy that I want to switch to his new guy?

That can be tough. You might want to start with all tge positives of the company, then working with him. Mention your previous conversations and then how invigorated you felt after working with the new guy. Maybe mention specific things that you liked from the new guys workout and why you want to do them again. If he's not willing to add them or try them tell him you'd like to switch. Definitely make it clear that no matter what you want to keep your loyalty within his company. Hope that helps, and good luck!

I don't think the owner will be offended. He hired the guy you like, after all. Just say the new guy is awesome & ask if he could check the new guys's schedule for availability starting next week. Your current trainer is a business owner, first & foremost. He may love fitness but the bottom line is that he keeps making money & has satisfied customers.

I agree, i doubt he'll be offended and instead would be happy the person he hired is doing a good job. I've asked to switch trainers or just stopped if I didn't feel challenged enough.

Just be honest. Say you've discussed with him before that you don't feel challenge enough and that never changed. Since he was out of town and you saw the other guy, you feel he is a better fit. Sure, it might hurt his ego just a tad, but these people know that you have to do what is a best fit for you. Maybe he will try and step up his game after losing a client.
