I have never used someone else’s program. I teach what I know works. I adapt to the current trends only if there is something worth integrating into my programs. I don’t follow the trends just for the sake of making money. Participants are encouraged to give me feedback and suggestion on things that interest them. I will always listen to my clients. If I can safely incorporate suggestions, I do. I sometimes turn down suggestions, but never try to make the client feel they made a bad suggestion. Usually I can get away with saying I haven’t had enough experience with the exercise program, if I don”t want to teach it. Or I find someone in the area teaching it. And refer clients to them. I try not to bad mouth programs unless I have solid reasons that they are dangerous.
