One thing that I like to focus on is helping my clients relax. At the end of our workouts, I have my clients lay flat on their backs on a mat, close their eyes and perform deep “belly” breathing (deep breath in through their noses, release slowly out the mouth). While performing this, I talk to them in a relaxed tone and ask them to visualize certain things (depending on what some of their goals or other things important in their lives are). I use this a lot with my athletes, but also very successfully with regular fitness clients. It always amazes me to see how relaxed this short breathing session will help the client become.
