I've got a one on one trainer, but I'm lucky in a few aspects of that. He's a pro boxer here in Africa and trains me 2-3 hours every day for free. It's a pretty sweet hook-up, all I gotta do is import supplements from the states and let him train in our gym, and we're even. I don't think I could afford a one on one trainer otherwise. It's gonna suck when I rotate to Europe in a couple months and have to join a club.
I can't really compare what it's like having a one on one trainer to joining a club or something like that because I've never been in a club. I'm sort of dreading it actually. What I can say, you'd probably already guess, is that you will get a lot of attention with a professional trainer and they work you pretty hard because they really want that one person that they're training to be their pride and glory. I'd probably be better off asking the other members what it's like being in a club as opposed to having a personal trainer.
It's nice in a small country like the one I'm in now too because since he's been training so long he knows just about every pro boxer that has ever came through this country. I had a pretty intense training session with the heavyweight champ of zambia the other day. Came out sweating bleeding and wanting to cry.
