Description

The language we use with our clients carries a great deal of weight. So often we categorize the success of a workout by describing it in terms of muscle burn or degree of sweating. Here is an opportunity to explore verbal and nonverbal cues for creating the correct positions and motions, as well as for directing and progressing the client's effort. In addition, we'll examine the objective effects of cues on the resistance profile. Join in as we discuss the key elements of communicating pertinent cues to your clients.
