Programming components in personal training often require more knowledge and adaptability than the traditional programming approach of three sets of ten repetitions. Programming starts with a laundry list of client needs that often limit program aggressiveness due to low levels of fitness, inhibitory dysfunction from musculoskeletal imbalance, and lack of flexibility; this is compounded by a lack of training frequency. The standard 120-180 minutes of contact per week makes it difficult to provide effective results, particularly when the client’s exercise tolerance, whether psychological or physiological, is low. Most clients are driven by vanity-based goals; they want to lose weight and look better, both of which indicate a need for greater training volume.
