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 do. And as others mentioned, it depends on the fitness level within the group. Sometimes its a baseline cardio program if that is where they are lacking. Other times its a stability workout if we’re working toward progressing to more compound movements. For some its flexibility and yoga work if that is an issue.
I usually have a workout that is the same for the group, so they can complete it together if they so desire, or on their own. I then give different clients progressions or modifications depending on their fitness level. This gives each of them a way to make the workout their own.
