>Got Relationships?

What makes a successful Personal Trainer? 

I love what I do, I believe that I became a trainer to meet people and have a relationships built upon their overall health and well being. I love my clients and I want them to succeed. I believe in them. TO the Athletes I work with I  wish the opportunity to shine and contribute to your success on and off the playing surface.  
The ability to not only understand the exercise or the program but the relationship built within the client and trainer session.  Granted It takes a full knowledge of the science of training and the ability to “teach” this ability to motivate,comfort,educate,support etc. Sounds very cliche, “A personal trainer/support system” . When I was training, playing basketball I loved the creativity of the coach, trainer etc to get the most out of me, its ovbious they created a relationship.
However there are few and far rleationships to come by in the day of instant resuluts and 8 pack abs, hgh (See baseball circa-1998-2009) and other social issues,socially economic, etc, have tarnished a industry of service on over expectations and misconceptions about training and performance.  
Performance-Goes without saying, results count.
Building a personal relationship(see personal in the job title) with clients. 
The training is the science, the relationship between athlete and trainer the ART
