The article gives a comparative analysis of the trainer-instructors’ burnout process in modern football versus martial arts. Subject to the survey were 20 martial arts trainer-instructors and 20 CYSS (Children’s and Youth Sports School) football trainers/ instructors. The sample was split up into three groups by the service records as follows: up to 10 years, 11 to 20 years and 21+ years service terms. The trainers/ instructors’ burnouts were rated by the Professional Emotional Burnout Questionnaire developed based on the thee-factor model by K. Maslach and S. Jackson and adapted by N. Vodopyanova and Y. Starchenkova. The questionnaire survey data and analysis showed the age group of 28 to 55 years (professionally most productive and successful) being the most exposed to the burnout syndrome.

Keywords: professional burnout syndrome, emotional burnout models, emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, reduction of personal achievements.
