I often give my clients newsletters once a month, most of these are with tips or contain articles about fitness etc . I am really wanting to start including “homework” for them though. I feel like it will help both of us achieve their individual goals easier. Do you give out “homework?” How often and what types? Since most of my clients have been here before me I feel like they may not like the changes I am going to implement- such as- bring in your weekend food journal. What are some ways I could perhaps make it fun for them or motivate them to particiapte and complete the assignments?
This depends on the client
I always ask them what they’ve done since I’ve seen them last
If they wear a pedometer I ask to see it
If they are a health coaching client we spend time discussing obstacles/goals etc.
All of my health coaching clients use My Fitness Pal, so I am looking daily at their journals and offering suggestions if need be.
If my client travels, I will give them a very simple workout that can be done in their hotel room.
