What is a good rule to follow then creating 30 or 60 minute workouts. My concern is making sure clients get what their paying for. Some workouts might have too many exercises and other might not have enough to cover the allotted time. Any advice on what to do in either situation is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Christine’s first sentence is very wise. Each client is an individual with unique goals. What constitutes “money’s worth” will differ.
For a lot of my clients, it’s not the creativity of the exercises, it’s the accountability of having a trainer there to ensure they’re safe and their form is appropriate. So I don’t worry about the number of exercises per se, but how effective they are at improving a client’s ability to function.
I’m assuming you’ve already done an assessment so you know some of the key areas your client needs to work on first to correct basic imbalances, improve posture, etc. But if not, that constitutes your first workout, and several weeks worth of workouts and homework after that.
