How to Make a Personal Training Session for a Client


The goal of a personal trainer is to help his clients meet their physical fitness goals. These goals could include losing weight, building muscle mass, toning or improving endurance and stamina. The best way to be successful is to customize workout plans for each client. This allows each client to spend more time on the exercises that will benefit her the most. There are several steps involved in developing a customized personal training session for a client.

  • Talk with the client to ascertain his goals. At this stage, you should take measurements and record his weight so you can track his progress throughout your program. Ask him what his main fitness goals are and if he has any secondary goals so you can address those as well. Also ask how many times per week he plans to work out.

  • Design several workout regimes that meet your client's needs. You will need a regime for each day she plans to work out each week. It is best to work different muscle groups during each workout so the muscles have time to recover before they are worked out again.

  • Consider your clients' current physical condition as you review your regime. You want the workouts to be physically challenging, but not so difficult that your client cannot complete them. A regime for a 20-year-old female who is not very physically fit is going to differ greatly from the regime for a 40-year-old male who has been working out regularly for a number of years.

  • Review the routines with your client. Before you begin exercising, it is best to explain the purpose of each exercise and tell him what type of results he can expect if he sticks with your regime.

  • Begin the regime. Once the client has approved your exercise regime, the next step is to pick a date and get started. Your workouts need to provide results and motivation, so be positive and provide encouragement during your sessions.

  • Reevaluate your regime periodically and make adjustments for maximum results. As your client gets more physically fit, you will need to adjust her routines accordingly. This could be as simple as adding more repetitions and using more weight or as complex as adding new exercises she could not perform before.
