I’ve been given the opportunity as a new personal trainer to take on training a friend’s 14 year old daughter as a “client” over the summer. A 4-6 week program focusing on building her strength as she is active in sports (she does not have a weight issue). Her father is looking for approaches through training that will challenge her and keep her interested. It sounds like motivation is also an issue. Any recommendations/resources any one may know of and can suggest would be greatly appreciated! thank you!
Listen to her and figure out what she likes and dislikes. Figure out how vested in this she is and determine how to motivate her by finding her button. This is likely to change many times, as exercise can be very hard. Make sure you are working her within her comfort zone and then gradually increase the zone. Have fun and good luck.
