Personal Trainers will gain new clients constantly, whether they’re friends of current or previous clients, or potentially they’re completely new to the gym environment. With this in mind, its vital to ensure you are able to talk to a range of people and make sure they feel comfortable in your presence.
Firstly, the greeting when meeting a new client is absolutely crucial. You have to fit the situation to the person, for example a younger individual may want it less formal and just to get started where as an older individual may expect a formal introduction and walk through. It is important to continue eye contact and ensure you are talking to them in the gym.
