Hi all, I got the job at HCOA Fitness Center as a PT. But they required a 45 minutes session. I’m the one who thinks and belive in shorts workouts like 12-15 minutes Hiit or AMRAP. And it’s difficult to me make a session that long. The 15 minutes warm up on the treadmill can’t be count it as part of the session. Any advice on how to elaborate a 45 minutes session. I’ve been searching on the web for some ideas. Any help will be much appreciate it!!
You’ve received some good ideas so far. I’ll try not to duplicate.
Since you are training one on one, and the assessment is provided by the gym, you might spend the first 10-15 minutes of the session, after warm-up, on client-specific exercises that relate to imbalances and weaknesses discovered in the assessment. Steps one and two of the NASM OPT model (since you have NASM). After that, you could move into a HIIT workout that’s appropriate for that client. Finish with balance work and then trainer-assisted stretch and mobility.
If the assessment was done well, with that and the first one or two sessions you have with your client, you should have a pretty good idea of what they need as an individual. You might have a basic template or structure for your 45 minute session, but what makes personal training “personal” is the individual-specific programming.
You might also look at this thread to see if there are ideas you can use. Not the exact timing as yours, but could be useful.
Short workouts are great but they are not always the right fit for everyone.
Think in terms of mixing things up and focus on figuring out ways to work each body part in a methodical manner.
There are thousands of exercises on Workout-builder and fitness videos from conferences.
