Difficult clients being those clients who don’t enjoy physical activity. Suggested exercises should be able to be performed in a gym setting with common equipment (medicine balls, body bars, dumbbells, kettlebells, stability balls, free weights, smith machine, and the like). Suggested exercises should also be engaging and aimed at helping clients to see working out as an enjoyable and positive experience.
Adding something different to the exercise routine sometimes help.Rope jumping, medicine ball, step training, resistance bands and balance boards are just a few tools to introduce to client’s suffering from boredom or being difficult. Speeding up or slowing down the tempo sometimes helps client’s focus better.Or ask the client why they are being difficult ( in your own special way without offending or being wimpy). Maybe this way, each of you can come to a common ground.
