Hope you guys can help me out with one of my client. He is 22 years old, 5’10”, 276 LBS. We have been training together since January and he has lost over 10″, BUT HAS NOT DROPPED ONE POUND! He is the exact same weight as when we started.
I have NOT done body fat on him because one of my fellow trainers told me that when a person is that heavy you should only measure them because 1. The pinches are all going to be “60” 2. It is really hard for their self esteem.
So, is this true? Also, could my client be replacing all that fat with muscle???
How long were you experienced,as a trainer?
I feel bad for the kid who loss 10 inches, and the trainer is more lost than amazed.
Another well experienced trainer would have 1. Appraise him on his BMI loss,
2.Encourage him on his goal.
3. Be proud of what you’ve accomplished.
Not make him feel bad? No, your Job is to help him get fit, not wipe his face & give ’em a cookie.
How do you know exactly what your client loss and gained?
You have a great client .

Do you know what you can do with this ?
