Being a personal trainer is about more than just hitting the gym with your client and counting the reps. It’s about understanding their goals and their hurdles, knowing what their favourite food is, whether they walk or drive to work. But most importantly, it’s about building a positive relationship and rapport.
During your first session with a new client, and even before you start your ‘official’ initial assessment, your client will likely drip feed you some important answers about their work, family, and social life without you even having to ask. Take note, because this information provides a great starting point for your relationship and can shape the following weeks, and months, or workout and nutrition planning.
Having a conversation comes naturally when you’re training clients in person, but what about online personal training?
