Tracy, I don’t know what credential you hold, however, I would suggest that you apply the science of exercise with all of your clients.
The best personal trainers not only get results for their clients but they also educate them.
The only way to educate your clients is to own the knowledge for yourself first. Be able to share with your clients the source of your knowledge.
Never forget to perform a subjective and objective assessments as this is the backbone of your exercise prescription. Any seasoned fitness professional will be able to determine by looking at the program designed for the client a great deal about the subjective and the objective assessment.
I wish many new clients and success in our new position.
