I have a client that I am beginning with and she used to exercise regularly using treadmill and eliptical machine. She had a major hysterectomy surgery done 8 weeks ago and wants to begin with a trainer to get back into shape. She has not been able to exercise AT ALL, so she is pretty much starting fresh. Any tips/suggestions from any of you out there who may have worked with a client post hysterectomy surgery?
I agree with everything LaRue has said
While training this client be in constant communication with her about how she’s feeling
I personally would start out very slowly and depending on her response, increase in increments that she can handle.
Make sure you have specific instructions/guidelines from her doctor and have permission to speak with them if need be.
