    anyone else cringe when a client goes on like there coach is there the best mate when in fact everyone knows its only because there paying them...

    99/100 after they stop paying they wont be talking for much longer.

    Yes, its usually people who arent very popular in real life so are made up with someone who talks to them even if paying

    Its like calling a brass your girlfriend

    Scotts the man, how he dealt with all those car crashes and non stop family deaths was commendable...

    See this with a couple of people I know where I think if you weren't paying that guy he wouldn't talk to you yet they're tight while the payments are still being made.

    I've got a mate sorting my diet and 'supps' for me at the moment and i'm just doing the training side of things but I don't pay him anything because he's a mate. And if he asked me to then I'd just get fat again doing my own diet :D

    I get quite friendly with clients. Atleast I hope they think so. Most hey my nunber or what's app at some point. I still speak to several after we stop working together. Contact is obviously a lot less tho. It's just life.

    However I no exactly what you guys mean with certain people

    i am usually stand off-ish with clients to start off with but you do end up becoming pally with them over time.
    16 week preps etc or offseason diets and 1-2-1 time...you strike up a rapport.
    i dont do things remotely, only face to face so when these guys come round my gaff to talk about plans etc over a coffee, you do blur the lines with meal plans vs real life shit and banter
