Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

Great answers. The guidelines are clear. For seniors the most important first step is to have physician clearance and to determine if there are any individual conditions which might impact on exercise program design...orthopedic conditions, cardiovascular concerns, previous injuries, etc. Other t...

What are the best exercises to do to prep my body for a long backcountry hike?

5 Answers | Asked by Billy Pease on May 09, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

Great answers. In my opinion the answer is quite straightforward. Do a lot of hiking with your backpack loaded, heavier than what you'll actually have. Hydration, as Harris suggests, is crucial. Have a good trip! Take care.

What workout elements are essential to training for a 5 day hike?

5 Answers | Asked by Kathie O'Callaghan on Mar 26, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

Lots of walking, in the hills. You train like you compete. Be sure to wear your backpack, loaded. Then when your backpack is not so loaded it will feel like a bit of the load has been removed. Kathie's answer is great. Just be careful on the downhill, that's the hardest. The negative, eccentr...

How do you motivate your most challenging clients?

11 Answers | Asked by Beth Harris on Sep 19, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

All great answers. Have your client go workout with you. Take him/her for a run, for a cycle, for a strength workout in the gym. Show your client that you practice what you preach. If he/she "wins" so be it. I suspect it will only motivate him/her to work harder, and you! Take care.

Do you think having 1-6 week challenges actually work to motivate clients and why?

9 Answers | Asked by Leila Harper on Apr 12, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

Great answers. I agree. Short-term goal accomplishment can be a great incentive. It's workable, it's realistic and I think think that it proves to your client that designated goals can be achieved. Long-term goals are so far off in the horizon that many who are not athletes can't relate. Short-...

Have you taught bootcamp to 16 year old female athletes? If so, what techniques did you use to motivate them to workout?

4 Answers | Asked by Sue D'Alonzo on Mar 25, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

Hi Sue, Just take them with you on your runs through the woods. All the talking in the world, in many cases, isn't going to make a hoot of a difference. Go for a run, go for a ride. Gently encourage them to keep up. Pace for the weakest, the stronger will scurry ahead. Then go have an ice cr...

6 Answers | Asked by tonia zaloumis on Jun 28, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

All great answers. I think that given her situation, have her work out on an elliptical machine. Very low impact, but with your guidance she should be able to achieve a quite vigorous workout. Good luck.

Suggestions for working with a male client that needs to loose 100 lbs.

9 Answers | Asked by Virginia Pittman on Jan 11, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

All great responses. I would only add that you need to reinforce to your client the absolute need to be patient. 1-2 pounds/wk weight loss is what the research suggests is the maximal effective rate. So it takes time. Try to help your client recognize that all of the magic rapid weight loss appr...

When doing online programming, do you charge for each workout for the days of the week that you design, or a flat rate?

7 Answers | Asked by Delmar Carey on Oct 02, 2015

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Oct 03, 2015

I disagree with Harris on this one. I would charge by the session, because the amount of time that you spend on each session can be variable. Give yourself some leeway. As your business grows that will give you more opportunity to charge according to your time commitment. Take care.
