One mistake I see new trainers do a lot is they skimp on giving their clients a proper warm up.
I get it, it’s easy to fall into doing that. Most clients we train judge how effective their workout was by how sore they are the next day. So it can be tempting to just give them what they want.
As trainers though, we know bettter and it’s up to us to find a balance between giving our clients what they want and giving them what they need.
They need to be properly warmed up. Their bodies need to be prepared for what is coming or else you are going to start noticing a lot of injuries arising.
We need to teach our clients about fitness as a long term goal. We need to teach them that health comes from looking after yourself, not beating yourself up in a workout.
Don’t be a trainer who gives their clients a few arm circles and bodyweight squats and calls that a warm up.
