What should a client expect from their sessions?
The first session involves a detailed discussion of prior exercise history, health history, clients expectations and goals as well as analysis of body composition and fitness assessment. Based on this information a detailed exercise program will be designed catering to the clients individual needs.
In subsequent sessions, the trainer will lead the client through a workout, providing motivation, advice, and feedback throughout and monitor the client’s progress towards his or her goals.
