Clients Background and Goals
Peter works full time so he is not very active and doesn’t really maintain a healthy diet. Peters goals for himself is that he wants to lose weight, tone his body, and live a healthy lifestyle. Back in college he had some experience of training.
My responsibilities as a trainers
As a trainer I must understand Peter for who he is, what he does, what kind of life style he lives, and their daily responsibilities. I want to try and build a relationship in order to improve effectiveness and be sure to make him feel comfortable. My main focus when having any clients is to maintain professionalism and keep striving my clients for success.
Some healthy food sources I will provide
The program I have designed for Peter consist of a 12 week mesocycle. Starting off with low volume and low intensity, this will gradually increase every few weeks.The reason to this is to strengthen the muscles to withstand harder training in the future. If Peter doesn’t feel comfortable doing a certain exercise then i will make an adjustment for him to work the same muscle with another exercise. For the nutrition portion of it i would ask Peter to sacrifice processed foods and sugars, also be sure he drinks plenty of water throughout the day especially during training. I will throughly explain macronutrients to Peter and the importance of it, and will also will have him make a food log to help track what he is doing throughout the day and see if there is anything i need to mix up or change for him over time. At the beginning I will make little changes and then later on i will include some more protein and carbs into his daily calorie consumption. I do understand my position as a trainer i am not a dietician, so then i will not give a diet plan but suggest to him the healthy food recommendations.
