Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 19, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 19, 2013

Hello Kai, some conversations are not easy to initiate but you may need to bite that bullet. I don't think that it is lack of understanding the value of consistent exercise. They hired a trainer because they do. But there are instances when there is not a good match between a trainer and a cli...

How many clients should a new trainer take on?

7 Answers | Asked by Callie Leasure on Sep 15, 2013
