Effective Verbal Feedback for Older Clients
Senior Fitness: How to factor the effects of aging into how you talk clients through their exercises.
Senior exercisers learn differently than younger ones do. They also process information differently from younger exercisers, and they react differently to the same information. This means trainers need to know
- whether to give feedback, and how to give it;
- when to give feedback—whether during a movement or once it’s completed; and
- what exactly to focus on and what to say.
Giving effective verbal feedback during exercise—knowing what to say and when to say it—is essential to the fitness success of older clients.
