Clarification: I am working with her on the standard body weight exercises, some dumbbell exercises (light weights), aerobic exercise, nutrition, weight loss, etc. and she’s doing very well. However, due to her lack of coordination, I am trying to incorporate new twists so she doesn’t get bored and continues to improve. Any ideas would be helpful! Thank you!
it is important that your client always feels successful, and if you want to add challenges, make sure they are just within grasp. For example, when performing a seated exercise, have her sit on a ball. Then ask her to lift one leg while doing the exercise. This does not require coordination but a fair amount of core stability. I have also added dyna disc to familiar exercises or had clients stand on one leg.
Some people have a hard time with coordination (just watch otherwise fit people on the dance floor or in an aerobics class). They are okay the way they are.
