I work in a corporate fitness facility that is only open M-F and I am not allowed to train outdoors on weekends due to liability reasons. My client is very aggressive with her weight loss goals, and after a few months with me she decided to add a "bonus trainer" to meet with her on Saturdays. How in the world do I make sure she is getting a well rounded program and plan our workouts properly? This other trainer has an expired cert and is having her do things I don't agree with. Help!
Another option could be sitting with your client to review her “aggressive weight loss goals” and talk about the PLAN that you have designed for her – educating her to the fact that you actually have a plan to help her reach her goals and it’s not just a plan for the days she’s with you – but also when she’s not – can go a long way to her understanding and trusting you with her fitness plans.
All too often I see women who think working out more and harder is the way to reach aggressive goals – when sometimes that’s causing part of the problem. They are working out harder – not smarter – not resting – not varying. I believe that’s where we come is as the “professional”. Not just writing a program – but creating and imparting a PLAN.
