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 ?
I checked your profile and web site and it says that you have 7-8 years of experience in training. You are also teaching group and/or boot camp classes as well. This means you must have encounter similar cases as your current client, so best way to approach this is to follow your instinct and experience you have gained so far from training your friends and/or clients so you can help your new client. If you follow the suggestions that the others posted here, it will provide you with a good base and all the information you need to design the best program as possible. Only you know this client and have done the assessment on him, so you are the one who has the best information in hand to help him reach his goals.
I agree with you that it should not be all about fat loss but rather an overall improvement of his fitness level and that is what you should use as your starting point.
