I would like to know how you do or think you could get clients or participants to participate in leisure time activities. I am not looking for exercise but more along the lines of cleaning, gardening, playing with children, etc. Also what kind of leisure activities to you encourage your clients to do?
Hi Jessica. People (including our clients) do things (including leisure activities) that interest THEM. So, no amount of coaching, cajoling or convincing will get someone to do something in their ‘leisure time’ that they are not interested in. In my opinion, as their trainer or even just a friend, the best we can do is help our client/friend explore in their own minds what things interest them.
