Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Setting attainable goals is one thing I do to keep clients motivated. Also, I have found that giving clients options on certain things and letting them make choices goes a long way in motivating them. I also keep the sessions fun, and that adds to the enjoyment of the whole experience, motivating them to keep coming back.
What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?
To me, this depends so much on individual client goals. I have had many clients lose weight and maintain a weight they haven't been at for a very long time. For these people, it is a great transformation. I've had clients who had goals as simple as gaining strength to be able to carry out their daily activities or do a certain number of pull-ups, etc. For these clients as well, achieving this is a radical transformation.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Every client is different, and I don't put anyone through cookie-cutter workout programs. Before I begin training a client, I run them through a complete movement assessment, which tells me where they are at physically and any specific areas that need to be addressed as I put together a program and we work toward their goals.
