I have a small group of clients that I meet with once a week. They are all mom’s that like small group training for the social interaction, as well as the lower cost. They all have the same obvious goal of losing weight and getting back in shape after having kids. Because they are only able to meet once a week, would you suggest giving them a copy of the workout I put them thru so that they can perform the workout at home during the week?
I have done the same in the past for clients who trained with me once a week. If you feel comfortable they will do the exercises correctly and don’t get injured, then it’s a good idea. If not, you could give them a few easy exercises (especially if they are new clients or have low fitness level) to do when they are alone. If they like to workout as a group they will actually push and support each other even when you are not around.
