After a client has been through their initial consultation and appraisal the trainer can prepare for the first fitness session.
The client’s objectives, health, current fitness level and lifestyle can all influence the nature of the exercise programme, including the physical and technical demands, the choice of activities and the exercise environment. The programme must be tailored to the the clients needs and objectives but still cover the main areas of physical development, such as:
– Cardiovascular fitness.
– Muscular fitness.
– Motor skills.
– Core stability.
Areas of major focus, such as client goals that have been agreed between the trainer and client, should be reflected in the programme by allocating appropriate time, volume and intensity to each activity. The choice of exercises should also be right for the client’s capabilities and objectives.
