"He's friendly, patient and attentive, not at all pushy, abnegating, self-absorbed or sleazy as some other trainers are apt to be labeled. I, for one, was surprised when he made it clear that he's ok with me taking multiple breaks in a session.
I'm taking lessons from him as a personal trainer so we're doing the standard muscle endurance and conditioning. You know, the squat, push-up, sit-up, pull-up thing. (For those of you wondering he also has free weights and a bench calling your name.)
But he's incorporated the teaching of Muay Thai self defense (Muay Thai is more about attack than defense though but some say the best defense is a strong offense) techniques in addition to the Thai language in his training. I love this because it gives the personal training concrete practical use and it makes the whole process fun, engaging and instructive. There's variation every day so you're not going to get bored of running around in circles everyday.
More importantly, in terms of physicality, he walks the walk. He's clearly fit. He shows you exactly how he wants you to do an exercise, he does it with you a few times, redirects you when you are wrong and challenges you to take it to the next level when you are right.
Basically, all you have to do is communicate with him and he'll oblige.
Great guy, great trainer. I'm going back. But really...if you're on here reading this, what do you really have to lose?"
