Currently, I use tons of books, educational material, ptonthenet, seminar and workshop info, have asked other trainers for help, and do not have enough people where I can do expensive software. I am looking to maximize my options for client program design and just come up with the best I can offer. Some days it can be overwhelming with looking through tons of books to come up with a great plan for each session. My clients love what I come up with but I’d like to know what people use that is free but great quality.
I do not use any software but often take pictures of my clients doing exercises which I plug into exercise descriptions. That way I a not hamstrung to illustrations in books and can add changes and modifications as I go along.
I also found that clients like to have themselves (or sometimes me) in the picture.
