Keeping Client Relationships “Professional”
The success of any personal trainer is based on their ability to build and maintain strong client relationships. People seek out a certified fitness professional when they are in need of help. They are not at their best and their confidence is in need of a boost. Personal trainers are there to support their clients through the rough times and help them stay focused on reaching their goals. Clients confide in their trainers and share a side of themselves that others may never see … the vulnerable, uncertain and fragile person that they hide from their friends and peers.
Although this level of trust is a great honor and privilege, there are times where the relationship between personal trainer and client may be compromised … and a client crosses the line.
In this week’s episode of Fitness Insight, Jamie Atlas (www.bonzabodies.com), Pharoah Kafele (www.puravidaclub.com) and Andrea Oh (www.todaysfitnesstrainer.com) share their experiences with past clients that have gotten “uncomfortable”, what they learned along the way, and provide advice to other trainers on how to avoid these types of situations in their careers.
