When you are training a client 2-3 times a week, how do you find the right balance between a structured and predictable program vs. a new challenging workout every time. I want my clients to make measurable progress, but I also want to keep my clients guessing and teaching them new things. Clients want to see progress, but that often involves a lot of repetition with certain exercises, but if you are always doing the same thing, your are not really doing a good job of challenging your clients. Any tips?
My structure depends on the needs of the client regardless of how many times a week I see them.
I always mix things up
From a psychological point of view, once our client starts getting bored, it’s very difficult to get them going again
Keep them “guessing” by adding new options each time.
It can be as simple as putting a ball toss in between the cardio segment. But always have fresh ideas
