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!
If you are training her well during the week, encourage her to use the weekends for recovery. If she gets antsy with nothing to do and feels like she needs to move, then design a light program for active recovery. i.e. bodyweight movements, stretching, etc. Something light to allow for recovery, but provides her the psychological relief that she is “doing something”. This is good time to educate her that recovery is just as important as the exercise.
Like others have said, talk to her about your concerns regarding the other trainer.
