how to work with clients with vertigo

4 Answers | Asked by Jeanette Quirk on Feb 11, 2019

Answered by Nancy Korf on Feb 12, 2019

This is anecdotal, but my husband had benign positional vertigo a few years ago, combined with another illness. When it first came on, there was no way he could work out. He did the crystal resetting procedure (Epley, you can google it) and it got better over a period of weeks. His doctor didn't ...

Exercising with Sciatica Injury

6 Answers | Asked by Susan Uylett on Jan 23, 2019

Answered by Nancy Korf on Jan 27, 2019

Good answers above by Paul and Natalie. I'd want to know more about the injury - how bad it is, doctor's recommendations for allowed and contraindicate movements. When in doubt, write out the proposed program and have client clear it with their physician or PT.

What do you do with a client that seem to have made the most gains that she can.

10 Answers | Asked by joan thompson on Jan 07, 2019

Answered by Nancy Korf on Jan 14, 2019

Thanks for the additional information. That's a tough one. Client stigmas and stresses around food can be even greater than those around exercise. Would your client see a dietician? How have your conversations around tracking / improving her diet going? Are you comfortable having them? I...

How many trainers pay "rent" without financial documentation and how many actually have indie written contracts?

3 Answers | Asked by Andrea Carlomusto on Dec 30, 2018

Answered by Nancy Korf on Jan 01, 2019

I'm a former CPA and tax accountant (two separate credentials - not all CPAs do taxes). I don't do client work any more, but I can point you a couple of places. I highly recommend going directly to the IRS site or to a licensed tax preparer / tax accountant with your tax questions. Two people w...

Anyone willing to share their biggest mistakes in fitness business?

7 Answers | Asked by Simon Birdsall on Sep 21, 2018

Answered by Nancy Korf on Dec 23, 2018

Oh! The other thing I think was a big mistake for me was not trying pilates sooner. I took a couple of classes with modestly-trained instructors, so I didn't get a feel for all the potential pilates has as corrective exercise. I've been in fitness for 28 years.

Answered by Nancy Korf on Dec 13, 2018

Hello, Rena, Since you just typed, "comfortable pregnancy," and your post is titled alleviating back pain, I have an idea of what you are looking for, but could you be more specific? 1) First and foremost, does the client have permission from doctor to exercise / stretch and if so, are there ...

What do you think about all the new Pilates fusion classes?

13 Answers | Asked by Beatriz Montserrat on Aug 28, 2012

Answered by Nancy Korf on Sep 28, 2018

The reverse is also true. I use other formats to improve clients' pilates. For example, I like to use the MELT rebalance sequence to teach a client and have them really feel what it's like to have tension in the ribs, diaphragm, and pelvis, how to decrease it, and then how to maintain that post-ME...
