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?
It really depends on the client, their body awareness level, and their goals. For some clients, I can’t vary the exercises too much because their body awareness is so low that when I seen them just once a week, their muscle memory is low and we have to start over. Other clients are paying me specifically for variety so that they can have options of things to do when they’re not with me.
