Tell the suggestion to buy the treadmill?

2 Answers | Asked by Tamil Selvi on Nov 09, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 09, 2013

Hi Talmi, it seems to me from your previous questions that you do not live in the United States; so my advice is generic about treadmill selection without any specific advice. Make sure you check the weight limit of the treadmill. Some treadmills have recommendations that the user may not weig...

I want to incorporate nutrition with my personal training business

5 Answers | Asked by Dianne Della Ratta on Nov 09, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 09, 2013

I have taken the NASM Fitness Nutrition Specialist course, and it has provided me with sound knowledge of nut...

Is it OK to sign up for Spinning Instruction Training and Continuing Education at the same time?

2 Answers | Asked by Karen Hatler on Nov 07, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 08, 2013

Hi Karen, that depends whether you want those CECs to be applied to your certification. You will need to re-certify two years after your initial certification, and the CECs for that process must be after the initial certification date. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

How do you cue an obese client to find neutral spine when lying on the floor?

5 Answers | Asked by Lori Michiel on Nov 07, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 07, 2013

Hi Lori, usually even very overweight clients can palpate their ASIS. When they are hook-lying, you can first ask them to perform pelvic tilts so that they can get a feel for the movement itself and become aware of the parameters of the movement. As a trainer, you can eye-ball as well as possible...

10 Answers | Asked by Jessica Bowman on Nov 07, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 07, 2013

Hi Jessica, this is not a question of 'either / or'. Nor are they mutually exclusive. Nor does having a certification mean that you are at the end of all learning. While there is of course a wide body of knowledge pertaining to fitness in general, the skills for group fitness vs. personal trai...

5 Answers | Asked by Patience Thompson on Nov 07, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 07, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 06, 2013

Hi Brandon, since you say that you are very experienced helping your clients with nutrition, I was wondering whether you are already a Registered Dietitian. But re-reading your question, you mention that you do not have a basic certification which leads me to believe that you have acquired your k...

What do you do to help clients with sciatica?

8 Answers | Asked by linda king on Nov 05, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 06, 2013

Hi Linda, I assume that you have doctor's clearance and have spoken with the physical therapist for advice. If the numbness and tingling do not go away, she needs to be seen by her doctor again. As a MELT instructor, I would show her some of those techniques while always being in communication...
