I hear many discussions and reading several articles regarding metabolism and client training, specifically, using the “MST” Metabolism Scare Tactic to sell training. When discussing Metabolism with clients do you also explain the concept and need of determing their “BMR” Basil Metabolic Rate as well.
I discuss it if it’s impacting my clients success: if they are not eating enough pre workout or if they use ” my metabolism” is slowing down as an excuse I will bring it up to them and explain in a bit more detail about metabolism but I would not and never have used it as a way to get a client!
Again, we need to stay within our scope of practice
Scaring someone into training is not a good tactic!
