I am an ISSA certified, I trained a lot of friends, but not I am doing it professionally for the first time, So, After the orientation and PARQs.. what shall i do on the first session..?
My client will have a fat loss goal..So on our first practical gym session I am thinking of doing a full body conditioning routine to detect his body movements and weak/strong areas….
Do you guys follow a structure with ur new clients ? or a blue print ?
As LaRue said, there is no blue print on what to do on the first session. Personally, I use the first session as a subjective movement assessment on everyone I train, looking for imbalances, weakness, or “unmentioned injuries” that show with certain movements.
Again “personally”, I complete a full body workout (movement based) that consist of dynamic exercise, core/ab exercises, pull, squat/hinge, push, lunge/single stance, and a metabolic/conditioning exercise.
Also, keep it basic; do exercises that you are comfortable with, and that will allow you to regress/progress if necessary.
Hope this helps, good luck!!
