Can you provide more information on your client, such as goals they would like to attain, food issues, work and family status, etc? These all influence the response to your question.
Use your medical health history, initial assessments, and meeting feedback to sort and address your client’s behavior and movement patterns by most to least important, then address them in the order of greatest impact.
Hello Manigandan Raja,
How fast is fast? Too fast is not good and everyone is different, so results will vary; just keep the client on the path to their goals.
Does your client keep a log/journal?
Two steps forward and one step back is still progress. Remember the starting line and keep an eye on the finish line with the accomplishments along the way.
Three days with you should be good as long as the client takes your good advice the rest of the week.
I want to add to the comments of the others that YOU cannot reduce weight for her, fast or slow. You can make recommendations for cardiovascular exercises which she can do by herself when she does not train with you. But her food intake is a big part of the equation, and you have no control over that.
On the assumption that she is healthy and can exercise every day, I would add cardiovascular exercise assignment to her daily routine.
As a Holistic Nutritionist, my question echos the other fit pros: How fast is fast? I do not encourage my clients to lose more than 2 pounds a week, and if your client’s goal is to lose faster, it may be time for another assessment, reevaluating their goals and making sure they are attainable in a timely manner.
I would also suggest encouraging your client to utilize a food/nutrition journal.
Also there is an awesome formula on fat loss/weight loss that are in most certification manuals that you can calculate exactly how much weight your client would need to lose to hit a certain bodyfat percentage…its Fabulous!!
For the record, I never see/train my clients more than 3 days a week and if they do want to do any type of additional workouts, I would suggest some type of aerobics class or a day (or two) of active rest. Whether you train your clients for 30 or 60 minutes sometimes you have to have them do the math on their results. For example:
24 hours in a day x 7 days a week = 168 hours in a week
I train you 3 x a week 1 hour = 3 hours a week
You therefore have = 165 hours a week (- sleeping on your results)
Therefore Dear Client….what are YOU doing to ensure your results?
I hope this helps!
– Cheers and Continued Success!
