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!
Tough situation. It is extremely important for trainers to coordinate what they are doing in these types of settings. Recovery is absolutely necessary and if you don’t know what is happening on the other days of the week, it could be a recipe for injury/poor results. You should attempt to contact the other trainer with the client’s permission of course.
I hope this works out well for you.
keep an open communication with her and stay on top the workouts she does with you with you. Teach her the correct way and make sure she doesn’t do anything that will injure her. As for the other trainer, all you can do is to keep talking to your client and make her be aware of any bad exercises that are not good for her. Eventually she will see the difference of experience and professionalism between you and the other trainer.
