She is five feet, 3 inches, weighs 112lbs, she wears a size 6 on the top but a size 12 on the bottom. She doesn’t have a great sense of balance so she finds lunges challenging, and her knees tend to get painful after a couple of sessions of squats, lunges etc. Her fitness levels are not great either and I am cautious about getting her heart rate up with bike intervals. I am at loss on how to help her achieve her goals. Any suggestions?
Hello Tonia Zaloumis,
You could try step work on a very low four inch step to start, for the knees and cardio. I would also do balance work with her.
That measurement is not so bad, like Paul Thomas says, could be genetic and double check the bodyfat.
Maybe you could alter the goals to be more realistic or break the goals into smaller increments. Helping the client choose healthy goals is also part of our job.
Good luck to the both of you.
