Joanne, I was so pleased to see the IFT model included in the new ACE Personal Training manual and have begun using it with all of my clients. Over the last 20 years, I have attended many conferences and continuing education workshops that have addressed a lot of the concepts in the model, and I have gradually integrated many of the ideas into my training practices. It is nice to finally see it all put together in a very practical, effective, systematic approach that every trainer can follow. The biggest challenge in using it may be in helping clients understand the importance of establishing firm foundations for a successful training experience. Many clients want to “jump right in” to intensity and tradition, so we have to consistently educate and inform our clients about the reasons behind our training choices. Sometimes, all it takes is a “needs work” result on a core function assessment to convince!
