Liability waiver - corporate fitness

2 Answers | Asked by Amelia Baures on Dec 09, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Dec 10, 2014

Of course the ultimate answer is yours to make, but in my practice when I'm working with a corporate client, I get individual waivers from each participant. I hope this helps. LaRue, CSCS www.lecfitness.com

6 Answers | Asked by CASEY ADAMSON on Feb 11, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 12, 2014

Hi Casey. I wish that there was a 'single answer' to this question (wouldn't we all - smile), but the truth of the matter is that it 'depends.' Every one is different, with different rates of metabolism etc. so there is no single answer to your question in my opinion. Sorry. LaRue, CSCS www.l...

How do you handle clients asking you to email them the workout you prepared for their session?

12 Answers | Asked by Lynn Valaes on Feb 10, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 12, 2014

Hi Lynn. For my practice, I will from time-to-time give client's homework and this will include some suggested exercises. However, as others have alluded to, I will only do this with an existing and experienced client that I've been working with for a while, and that can demonstrate to me that the...

I passed the ACSM CPT exam and am ready to quit my job and get started! But how?!

15 Answers | Asked by Samantha Kellgren on Feb 11, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 12, 2014

Hi Samantha. Congratulations! As someone who started out pretty much thinking the same things as you 21 years ago (wow has it really been that long?), my advice would be: If you're currently working in a job, rather than quit your job and diving head-log into starting out new, I would recommend s...

Why the fingers shakes sometimes or it feels like moving without doing any movement ,why does it happens

3 Answers | Asked by Soumendra Pattanaik on Feb 11, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 12, 2014

Hi Soumendra. I'd be hesitant to give you any 'answer' to your issue in a forum answer. The BEST answer (and advice) that I can give is to see your physician about this and get a medical answer. Good luck. LaRue, CSCS www.lecfitness.com

9 Answers | Asked by Heidi Weinberg on Feb 11, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 12, 2014

Hi Heidi. I have written much on taking care of the shoulders - particularly since I too, as a former baseball pitcher and a current tournament tennis player have seen my share of shoulder problems.

Competing With what is "popular?"

7 Answers | Asked by Tim Williams on Feb 12, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 12, 2014

Hi Tim. Unfortunately, as you've correctly identified, there is tons of information (good and bad) out there in the public stream about nutrition and diet. In my opinion, all you can do as their trainer is provide the information that you feel is in their best interest. It's truly up to each indi...

13 Answers | Asked by Kerry Walsh on Feb 11, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 12, 2014

Hi Kerry. Actually, I never weigh or measure my obese/overweight clients. I want their focus to be on how they're starting to feel, both physically and mentally about themselves. I tell them to 'monitor' how their clothes fit. When they start getting looser - they're making progress. I even wro...
