Christopher Muther worked out with master trainer Albert Samano at the Boston Sports Club.
Muther realized after three years of training, Samano had become one of his closest friends.
Muther appreciated everything that Samano has taught him about fitness. But just as much — if not more — he appreciated his friendship.
It’s not unusual for trainers to bond closely with their clients, inside and outside of the gym, both trainers and clients have found.
“If I don’t have that bond, then I’ll switch trainers,” Melissa LaGrant said. Above, LaGrant with Equinox trainer Jeff LaJoie.
