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!
Wow, what a tough situation!
You can only control what happens with your clients. Everything the other trainer does is his/her responsibility.
An exception: when the other trainers ‘programming’ interferes with your session.
You can talk with your client if the other trainer ‘recommends’ or does exercises you think are not safe. Emphasize why you think something is not safe and if anything else can be used; demeaning the other trainer can backfire-your client may actually defend the trainer with the expired certification!
Hope you are able to deal with this situation!
