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!
Its your clients choice to do as she wishes on her own time, nevertheless I would cease ongoing training with her. She should decide what is important to her health and wellness and you can help her with her choices.
A. Your certified and the “bonus trainer has an expired certification.
B. Your “bonus trainer” probably has expired or no insurance.
C. You could be held responsible for an injury unknowingly cause by the “bonus trainer”.
D. Conflicts could arise in different training methods that you do not approve.
Give her credit for her enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile to achieve her goals however, “more” isnt always better.
Let her know you are not willing to participate in a “dual” training program with a trainer you do not know and let her make her own choice.
