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 see my role as a teacher more than a workout leader. Most of my clients (and CEC students) want to learn and grow, to be able to independently apply what they learn from me in their lifestyle and classes. These clients (and students) are required to demonstrate the ability to do so independently before I will approve them doing so. One thing that I have found is that the serious clients (and students) embrace this format.
I do charge a fee for printed materials when clients want me to provide this. Whether the material is for a CEC course or a client, there are no refunds once the material has been mailed or given to the client.
