Oxygen Debt is Unnecessary
O2 debt and personal training programs that push clients to hard only cause abnormal breathing patterns. And these abnormal breathing patterns actually reduce athletic performance.
I am not a chemist, or a doctor, but I know that if you breath too hard or not enough, the ratio of Oxygen and carbon Dioxide in your blood is altered. This is not a healthy side effect of personal training.
What Should a Trainer Do?
A good trainer will manage O2 debt and personal training exertion carefully and encourage their clients to control their own exertion to maintain healthy breathing.
That's not to say that getting puffed is harmful, just don't do it to extremes. Holding your breath won't hurt you either, as long as you don't do it for too long.
Your Clients will Love You
Teaching your clients about O2 debt and personal training exertion management will make you look like a hero. What client wouldn't be happy to learn that they don't have to gasp for air to get a good workout.
And by teaching your clients these principles, they have something to talk about with their friends. Its an easy way for your clients to brag about how good their trainer is.
