With all the modern gadgets and aids now available, you can keep in touch with your client during vacation time and help him or her to stay on track and keep fit. Since clients are used to guidance during fitness training, in general they will not pay attention to the same when left to themselves.

Ways to help your clients stay fit

  • One good way to help your client stay fit during vacation time is to sit with the client before hand and work out an easy fitness routine for them during the vacation period. Write down the planned exercise routine so the client knows which muscles need working out.
  • More often than not the client would be booked into a hotel during the vacation period. If it is a hotel there will probably be gym facilities available. The client will then have familiar equipment to work on. If the client is booked into a guest house type accommodation, your written exercise list will come in handy. The client can be advised to carry resistance bands which will help with workouts for body weight. If the vacation is a beach resort appropriate workouts such as sand resistance exercises can be included.
  • If your client is visiting family, spare time could be spent going for long walks with family members or on their own before the rest of the household awakes. A good tip from your EPTI – European Personal Training Institute would be for you to use texting to remind your client to take time to exercise.
  • When on vacation, it is not easy to stick to a fitness diet. People have to eat whatever is available and served. If the client is booked into a hotel they should pay some serious attention to the meals they order. Many hotels post their menus on websites. This would help the client to check out the many food options in advance and order accordingly. Consuming alcohol though a relaxing experience when on vacation can prove disadvantageous to any fitness programme. So the client should be advised to go easy on alcohol consumption, also drink plenty of water. Any other useful tips you have learnt during your fitness trainer courses at European Personal Training Institute should be passed on to the client.

Conclusion

Helping your client to stay fit during vacation time does not have to involve any heavy working out. You can make the workouts short, low intensity and enjoyable.
