So many people go to trainers in hopes of losing an unrealistic amount of weight in such a short time. TV makes it look like it can happen within weeks! When the client is unable to reach that goal they are disappointed, naturally. What do you trainers do to help a client understand this is a lifestyle change and will not happen overnight?
Remind them that success stories on TV often have extra resources like a registered dietician, medical doctor on site, expensive health food, work out a lot and everyone has different genes. Also remind them that many of these people regain the weight, put their health at risk, or gained the weight on purpose as actors to lose it again.
