As a personal trainer, there is often an extreme proximity between you and your client. In order to convey exercises correctly, physical contact with him/her is vital. Unfortunately, this could lead to misunderstandings. That’s why we’ll learn theory and practice for the best “hands on” options, always highlighting physical closeness and distance case by case.
Successful personal trainers react sensitively to the client’s signs of a specific physical or mental need. Are you just a trainer? Do you act as a coach, a therapist, a temporary friend or everything at the same time?
This workshop focuses on some focal points of communication: how to deal with bothering or rushed clients, how much empathy is needed to build trust, how to turn a demotivated client into an active one, how much proximity is appropriate, what are the limits of privacy and intimacy.
Analyzing different case studies, we will go through each scenario and clarify the successful way of handling things.
Kinesiology Training (KLT) describes an approach that applies kinesiology muscle testing as a basic tool for measurement. The KLT effectively indicates whether or not the current procedure will provide the desired result.
