As a personal trainer, it is important to stay one step ahead of the game when training your clients and to ensure that they’re being made to feel that they’re your number one priority. It can be daunting for someone to walk into the gym and seek out a personal trainer, but by making yourself approachable, you’ve already ticked off one box. It is important not to abuse your fitness qualifications.
Your main goal is motivate and train your clients in a professional manner, ensuring that their health and fitness goals are being met. When a client first comes on board, you want to know as much about them as possible and we’re not saying you should go deep here, but to merely understand their background, goals, their fitness ability and if they have any injuries etc. You should never make assumptions by what you see.
Focus Training’s personal training courses will teach you how to successfully assess your client and plan their fitness regime.
Try not to push your client too much on their first few sessions. Remember, they’re most likely to be new to this form of exercising, so take it one step at a time and plan the weeks ahead. You want your client to feel comfortable and motivated. It is important not to take advantage of your fitness qualifications, as your client will be saying farewell before they’ve begun.
Personal training courses can give you the wealth of knowledge needed to become a rewarding and highly successful personal trainer, but common sense and personal skills is on you. Avoid spending half the session on your phone, chatting or being distracted by others. Your client will lose interest and their goals will be out of reach. Remember, you want to have a glowing reputation and be highly recommended.
