I came across an interesting fitness blog post recently. It is a great point of thought, I make it a point, regardless of the program design for my client to ask how do they feel. Asking and listening to a client is very important and should determine how you proceed before training. How do you all address this subject with clients.
I agree with you. I always make sure my clients are pain free before any of their workouts, because the last thing I want for them is to start training them and not knowing they have some type of injury or other issues. If they tell me that they have some type of pain, I have to make a quick assessment to determine if it’s something that can be dealt with or if they will need to talk to a physician. Better safe than sorry.
