The only time I have hesitated was when I had to do a fitness assessment for my bootcamp: my husband drove over to the home with me and it was fine.
As for personal training: my client based is a result of word of mouth,and referrels. I don’t get cold calls.
I think it’s important to take precautions but I also think it’s close minded to say you’d never go to a mans home if you are a female trainer, not all men are perverts!
Hi Lisa. I tried to send a comment to your last reply but it was from my Blackberry and contained a couple of typos/errors. I’m resending my Comment as an Answer:
Hi Lisa. You’re absolutely right that nothing is 100 percent. Even same-sex training in the home can be a challenge! The bottom-line is that it all comes down to the people involved ( the client and trainer) moreso than it does what sex they are. If you establish a professional relationship, maintain boundaries that you both are comfortable with, and immediately address any issues that may arise, things should go smoothly.
