2 Answers | Asked by Laura Corbin on Feb 07, 2017

Answered by Karin Singleton on Feb 07, 2017

Hi Laura, needless to say, you need a physician's approval. I also assume that you do some form of assessment which you should do as for any other client. Chemo may make him more tired as it progresses, in which case you will need to adjust the workouts. Since he has lost quite a bit of weight...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 26, 2017

Hi Alex, it sounds to me that you have managed to built muscles while losing fat at the same time. That is the reason why the clothes fit better but the scale won't budge. If you had been able to determine your body composition (fat weight vs lean mass), you would have been able to see the positi...

3 Answers | Asked by Denise Lee on Jan 14, 2017

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 15, 2017

Hi Denise, that really depends on the size of the barrier. I once was asked to give instructions to a couple from Ukraine who only spoke Russian. In that case, their daughter was there to translate.
