Today at 3:30 pm, I will be training my first female client! Yippee!
I hope this goes well!
I told her:
Rule # 1- Do NOT argue with me
Rule # 2- No bitching!
Rule # 3- See what is only in front of you! That is me and me only! Not some damn hunk whose doing stiff legged deadlifts () I had to throw that in!
Too bad I'm leaving soon for a month but I hope she sticks with this!
You're taking on a client and then leaving for a month? Personally I would have given her to someone else...it is hard for clients to bounce from trainer to trainer who may do different things. If you are away, how are you going to be able to motivate her to stick with her program?
Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.
The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.
Well, today was not a good day for her! She ended up working 13 hours and couldn't make it! I told her if she can't bring her effort today, not to worry because tomorrow, I'll need her at her best!
So my friend in ATL calls me and ask me if that is funny she cancelled! I told him, "what happens to that person when a client cancels on me?" He says, "I know-I know!" That's right, tomorrow is "Annihalation day" tomorrow!
Wow, it was amazing! Her form was really bad on most things and thank god I was there watching as well!
Her diet consist of only two meals but hey, at least they weren't fattening!!!! We'll certainly fix this and very soon! Like, TONIGHT!
As for her work ethic and desire, it was slightly above average and I constantly had to remind her why we were their in the gym.
As for the bitching and wanting to avoid pain, yeah, I heard it and instantly had her stop and asked her if she'd rather go home and eat a pizza or some fattening food. Thank god two of the finest-hottest gals walked in the gym and acknowledged me and said, "Hello". I asked client # 1 if that was her goal... to look like them and she said, "yes". So, I said, "well, get TO WORK then. And she finished her workout!
I received a call while in the gym at 8:30 am this morning and her telling me two things.
"ooooohhhh my arms hurt!" (She means her triceps)
"Secondly, I ate eggs and I hope that makes you happy!"
Well, I spent two freaking hours recreating her meal plans/Workouts and it was quite easy. (I reformatted my HD and lost my Workout and Meal Plan Disk! Real Smart on my part!!!!)
For Example: While discussing her proteins.... I asked her, "Chicken?" She says, " Only Breast- Boneless-Skinless"
Then I said, "Eggs?" She replies, "Hate them but will try them but can I have a piece of chicken instead"???
Today or tonight I should say at 8 pm, I am going to introduce, Back and Shoulders and Bi's! Remember, this is only an introduction and I would never have her train two majors with a minor body part! I'm not that

SHIT HOWDY DAVID.....welcome to MY World!
No problem there, DP! I will keep you in mind
She has Kidney problems so I had to be very careful with her Protein intake/Diet! Her diet is very clean though and that is a "GREAT" thing! Problem was she was only eating 1 to 2 meals a day along with a lot of sugars!
I've structured her weight training to not strain the lower back because of her kidney problems and so far it's gone really good.
Legs day (only Quads) was successful.
4 Sets (10 reps each) of each exercise
- bobsled (squat)
- Leg presses (She was suprisingly strong for never doing them too!)
- * Hack Squat (just an intro to see how her back handles it/She did GREAT though!)
- Walking lunges
- Leg extensions
She didn't bitch as much as today but the day is not over and wait till' she feels it tomorrow and the next day
