The physical nature of personal training is one of the many appealing benefits for those of us who become trainers. However, the downside of relying on our body as a primary tool to do our job is that we only have one, so if we break it (literally!), it could be out of commission for a bit. Luckily, there are a few ways we can work around injuries that prevent us from being our typical physical selves and help us continue to provide value to our clients.
Just because we can’t demonstrate an exercise, doesn’t mean we can’t have someone else step in! There are many quality videos and websites with exercise tutorials from established professionals that can be shared. As you are programming your client’s session, have a few links to these videos pre-downloaded and ready to use as needed.
