Should I?


Monday, April 08, 2013

My son has started attending MMA training classes (again) at the place where i used to work out at. My previous trainer, whom i had success with until she started flaking out on training sessions, was there and asked me if i wanted to come back and train. i informed her that financial means as what they were, i could not afford to. She informed me that she would allow me to come back during my son's MMA training classes to work out and would not charge me. She also said that if we wanted to work out another time, she would be willing to barter for babysitting and studio cleaning. i'm tempted to take her up on the offer, but i'm so scared that it's just going to be another flake out situation and i can't take to be let down and hurt again. i just don't know...

    It sounds what ever differences you had in the past she has put them aside.....or she would not have made such a generous offer. Communicate.....that is the key. Forget about those boys....take the deal!!! Have fun!!! emoticon

    FREE is my favorite four letter word! And if she flakes again where does that leave you? EXACTLY where you are right now. If you had success in the past then go for it! It could only help you on your journey. As you're training with her try to take note of what you're doing so that if she does flake you can continue without her! Good Luck!

    Just a note, I would not be doing the MMA classes. That is a group of 14-18 year old young men. She just suggested that i come in and work out while their class was going on since the studio will already be open... i don't even like the Kickboxing classes that she does. Not coordinated enough for that mess...

    Is that something you can talk with her about? It might be a little bit uncomfortable, but as long you can both be respectful there's nothing wrong with saying something like, "Your offer is incredibly generous but I feel like last time I trained under you we had some scheduling challenges. Is there a way of preventing that from happening again?". That way you're not blaming her (even though it's her fault from what you're saying) and hopefully can come to an agreement. Seems like it could be a great thing if she can stick with it!

    Do IT, do IT! You might try just the MMA classes at first - she can't flake on those since they are scheduled with so many people! (Right?)
