The client told me that when she works out it can jump close to 200. She was given Beta Blockers years ago from the doctor, but stop taking them because she said they made her too tired all the time. She also told me that she knows when she needs to slow down or stop pushing to hard. I am pretty hesitant about the situation.
Now mind you I am new to the field and this is my first client. Any advise on the situition or even things I should stay away from?
I agree with Paul and Harris
I can imagine that you are anxious to begin your career but take a pause and re think it until she gets clearance. Even then, how will you make sure she takes her pills?
I would not only get a written clearance from her doc but you need to release yourself from any and all liability if you decide to take her on
You could always do only strength training with her and NOT do any cardio.
