Trainer Question: What would YOU do?

Trainer Question: What would you do?

WWYD2014 question

Situation:  At initial session, client (60 years old) refuses to allow trainer to take blood pressure and says this is the sole responsibility of their doctor (states BP is fine, but refuses to elaborate). Also crosses off certain aspects regarding aerobic activity from the company release form.  Only wants help for strengthening muscles of the knee joint. What would you do?

Action Taken: Will update KINESIOLOGISTS.CA’s action taken on Monday! Stay tuned, but all trainers, be sure to post what your action plan would be!
