Send them the workout, one thing we have to remember is that it’s not about us it’s about them… give them what they want if they want homework give it to them. We gotta give them all the tools that will get them results!!
I easily email my clients their workout with this iPad app I use to train all my clients.
The Training Notebook on my iPad has been invaluable for my business.
Hi Lynn. For my practice, I will from time-to-time give client’s homework and this will include some suggested exercises. However, as others have alluded to, I will only do this with an existing and experienced client that I’ve been working with for a while, and that can demonstrate to me that they understand proper safety and form of the exercises I’m about to give them. I NEVER give new clients ‘at home exercises’ to perform.
I hope that this helps.
I want to encourage them to workout on their own in between sessions with me. By them asking for the information it lets me know they are motivated and confident enough to do some things on their own. Additionally, they will progress that much faster and our training sessions will be more productive. I’ve had more success with clients who want to do the additional work on their own. I provide the exercises for my clients if they ask. I give them the exercise name, reps, sets and weight (if applicable).
