Getting clients to take action outside the gym can be one of the hardest parts of being an effective trainer.
When we get certified as trainers we learn a ton about how to train people. What we don’t necessarily learn is how deal with people.
To make a career out of training your clients need to see progress pretty quick or else you’ll lose them.
With 168 hours in a week and the fact that you probably only train a person on average 2 times a week. That is less than 2% of the week your client is with you.
If you are not giving them smart easily do-able strategic steps to work on, they will more than likely go right back into their pre-existing way of life resulting in little lifestyle change.
The question remains: How do we best engaged them?
