Potential new client has been diagnosed by a Nutritionist with metabolic syndrome, has been through countless personal trainers and with no help towards her goals, also is now pre-diabetic, and very frustrated with her lack of results. Really looking for a trainer who has or currently has a client with this issue.. also cardio needs to be low impact, running causes hip pain so I’m sure there might be an issue there.
I have little to add to Janet’s recommendations for the metabolic syndrome.
Something in your description, though, caught my eye. You say that she has been “through countless personal trainers”. None of them has helped her, and matters seemed to have gotten worse. I realize that not all trainers are created equal; some are better than others. But I find this a very strange comment to make. It sounds to me that this lady never stuck with any program long enough to even see any results. There are clients who run from trainer to trainer and put the lack of progress on them. This prevents them from looking at their own shortcomings. We can only guide people to the best of our abilities; they still have to do the work themselves. What to watch out for are rebuttals to your suggestions that start with “Yes, but …..”
