I have a client that I am training who has recently had rotator cuff surgery, so she can not do exercises that require her to lift her arms over her head or straight out in front of her; she also has arthritis in her hip. She is 59, not very overweight- just wanting to tone. Does anyone have suggestions on exercises I can do with her that works with both of her upper AND lower body limitations?? Thanks!
How to fire a client
I recently (4 months ago) started my own in-home personal training business. I'm still working on getting the word out and getting my reputation out there. So, I'm training a lot of friends and friends-of-friends.
Currently, I'm training a man that should be training with me twice a week. He's missed the past 2 weeks and now "totally forgot" about our session tonight.
It's very frustrating and I'm not sure what I am doing wrong and why he is not motivated.
He is training with me because he medically has to. He has a heart condition that will kill him within the year if he doesn't start a fitness program and learn about nutrition.
At each session we discuss nutrition, cooking options, work-outs and more. It's constant working out and education for the full hour.
My struggle is because he is a close friend, HOW do I "fire" him as a client or make it very clear that my time is as important as his time and cancellations just don't work for his goals or mine?
