suggestions for traveling with dumbbells
I provide in home small group training classes, and have groups that require a variety of dumbbell weight. What suggestions do you all have for traveling with these dumbbells, that won't require multiple trips to the car in order to lug them all into the client's home?
You can buy a cart that you can fit in your car (you can Google them online). Another option would be for your clients to come to your car and help you carry them (depends how evil you want to be) or get a backpack and carry as many as you can in one trip (this could be a great workout for you as well :-)).
I hope this helps.
Educate them first so their smart. Kidding, haha.
I use a handtruck to carry adjustable equipment in a tub. Get the kind for stairs so it slides up instead of clunking up and down; but, it can scratch stairs. Use long straps to tie it all down and have fun getting that in and out of the vehicle.
There is no perfect solution; I get a workout getting to the clients' workouts.

You can set up an account through Power Systems and put together a recommended training bundle.
Or, like the others stated, use a suitcase or cart to get things into and out of the house. Just take that extra time into consideration when scheduling sessions!
For semi-private training bring a pair of (quickly) adjustable dumbbells; there's an assortment systems out there. Of course you'll want to bring other training tools and accessories as well.
I like to have my clients "fight" over my equipment. For example, with 6 clients I pull out 5 tools. They have to race to the car and pick out their choice, or choice that's left. The last person starts with a body weight exercise (after a group warm up, of course!). This is a lot of fun when training at a park or somewhere outside.
