My clients are all over the map with what they are able to accomplish in fitness during the week between our sessions… with both injury prevention in mind and the clients’ desire for change and growth, it is paramount to keep the sessions challenging and yet safe. Are most trainers providing “home programs” for their clients? And if so, is this customarily a separate charge?
I don’t think you should be responsible for what they do in their down time.
As fitness professionals we are obligated to share with our clients the relevant science that helps them achieve their goals, however it is up to them to decide whether they are going to apply what we’ve taught them. It’s called self-accountability.
