Treat beginners’ training as the antidote to the clients’ life.
Our bodies are adapted to our lifestyle and regular habits, and beginners’ bodies have probably adapted to not working out, to a sedentary lifestyle.
This is what you’ll need to change, it’s not going to be easy adapting to a new lifestyle and this is where your job begins. Create a program that counteracts your client’s current lifestyle, work on their muscles and mobility first in order to help him/her and their bodies adapt to working out.
For example, most clients spend their days sitting down, which means they’re exposed to hip flexion. The opposite of flexion is hip extension, so they should start with exercises like glute bridges or deadlifts.
