Function versus Physique-Help Clients to Achieve THEIR Goals

Many fitness professionals use balance training or other functional modalities to create intensity. While functional fitness is important, have we lost sight of what our clients' goals are? When most people list their resolutions, they are interested in losing weight, looking better or fitting into their favorite clothes. Join celebrity trainer Ron Mathews as he shares his tips and training secrets that will help you use functional fitness, combined with a back-to-basics approach, to maximize your clients' results.

  1. Identify all your clients’ goals and develop a coordinated strategy for success.
  2. Create challenging and appropriate progressions from basic exercises.
  3. Discover ways to regress key movements while keeping end results in mind.
  4. Motivate and monitor clients’ progress.
  5. Rebuild your training strategies.
  6. Assess intensity capabilities and scale exercises accordingly.
