There are some clients that I work with who work hard but not as hard as I know that they can. Do you have any tips/tricks that work for getting that client to push themselves harder to reach their full potential? (For example I really want this client to work harder but since we work in a pool I often feel like she isn’t working as hard as she should be). Any suggestions would be great.
Is this a personal training client? Is working harder consistent with this client’s goals?
Sometimes, even though a client can work harder, they choose not to. Maybe have a discussion with this client about their potential and whether they want to be pushed harder in order to reach it. We can encourage clients, but we can’t “get them” or “make them” do anything.
