Well, this is not unusual. Each client has their own reasons why they hire a personal trainer. Your job is to educate them as much as you can and be the motivator they really need. If this client just wants a walking buddy then for now this is all you can provide for him. You can try incorporating a few bodyweight exercises along the way (while walking) in order to add some extra movements into this routine and spike things up a bit. This way he’ll still feel that he’s getting what he wants out of his time with you and also a chance for you to provide some extra benefits to his training. I hope this helps.
Hello Marie Winiarski,
Nothing wrong with that. I walk with clients which always turns into a conversation of health education. If you listen, you will find out what makes them tick as they become more familiar and comfortable around you. Enjoy the time with them and watch them grow into health and fitness enthusiasts.

you have to meet the clients where they are. After all, walking is a workout, too. You may be able to sneak a few other things in but remember that you are still doing the client a favor if he or she walks rather than do nothing at all.
