A diverse range of strategies are available for you to coach, educate, encourage and inspire to maximise a client’s motivation and subsequent adaptations.
A tailor made macro-cycle, designed effectively to maintain structure and progression will benefit a client’s development significantly. This will eliminate any excuses for not exercising.
Safe, effective and specific prescription of exercise will ensure a client’s technique will be proficient.
4) Individualised Training
Every client requires an individualised programme to meet their individual needs. Each training cycle should be broken down into manageable and realistic phases with frequency, intensity, time and type parameters being manipulated. Comprehensive physical measurements will enable monitoring and tracking of each client’s progression.
5) Effective Workouts
The efficiency of training is essential to maximise the time available to train. Implementing advanced training methods can generate significant physiological adaptations in limited time.
Positive coaching and supervision allows for any functional movement patterns to be mastered and supported. As a PT, you should be able to provide an extensive range of knowledge for all holistic and well-being requests.
7) Sports-specific Training
Depending on the specific requirements, experienced PTs will provide specific and bespoke programmes embedding specific movement patterns to develop an athlete for their chosen sport.
8) Injury Rehabilitation
Corrective treatment and specific prescription can be highly effective to support correct recovery from injury.
9) Specific-needs Training
An experienced PT can work with specific populations including the elderly, disabled, young, pre and post natal along with those suffering from illness and disease. Research confirms that individuals with health challenges such as diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis or heart disease benefit greatly from regular physical activity.
Physiological and psychological confidence is a definite by-product from taking part in physical activity. Positive reinforcement, feedback, results and the feel good factor will all bolster confidence to take on new challenge.
