How To Cool Down Personal Training Clients | Assisted Stretching Guide Included!
What's up guys Jeff from Sorta Healthy here! In today's video we'll be going over how to cool down personal training clients. Even though there are multiple right ways to cooldown clients there are definitely some techniques that are more effective than others when it comes to session timing, gradually lowering a clients heart rate, and enhancing perceived value from a client. Cooldowns are unfortunately one of the areas where many trainers drop the ball on one or more of those things. The things that we cover in this video will help you to not be one of those trainers. Also, assisted stretching is featured pretty heavily in this video too, which is pretty cool since we haven't covered it too much on here yet! As always, thanks for the love and support!

In Home Personal Training | Was It Worth It? | My Story
What's up guys Jeff from Sorta Healthy here! Today we'll be discussing in-home personal training! Unlike most of our videos, this video will mostly cover my personal experience working as an in-home personal trainer. I worked as an in-home personal trainer, or a personal trainer who trains clients in their own homes for about 5 years. It was simultaneously one of the most rewarding but also challenging things I've done. It's really what allowed me to take my training career to the next level. In fact, my very first video here on YouTube was an in-home training session. In addition to discussing my own personal story when it comes to in-home training we'll also discuss whether I thought in-home training was a worthwhile endeavor. Is in-home personal training worth doing going forward? That's something we'll also talk about. Thanks for everything guys! I appreciate all of you!

What's up guys, Jeff from Sorta Healthy here! In today's video we'll be covering what you should do to get started as a personal trainer. Within personal training there isn't a clear path to take you from interested, yet unskilled to skilled and successful. On top of that, there are probably more people who would lead you astray and try to take your money within our field compared to just about any other profession. With this video I want to give current trainers, or prospective trainers, 5 easy to follow steps that will lead them in the right direction when getting started. There's no BS or selling you anything in this video, only useful tips and advice! Hopefully, you guys find the content helpful! Thanks for your support!

Training Clients With Diabetes | How To Train Diabetic Clients As A Personal Trainer (A Free Guide)
What's up guys, Jeff from Sorta Healthy here! In this video we'll be going over how to train diabetic personal training clients. We covered training clients with hypertension or high blood pressure a while ago, and training clients with diabetes creates similar but different challenges. If you have a client who's diabetic this video should help steer you in the right direction when it comes to keeping them safe and getting them good results. We spend quite a bit of time covering what you shouldn't do when working with diabetic clients, and then what you should do instead. Many trainers do things to endanger their diabetic clients, but that's not gonna be you!

Should You Become Friends With Personal Training Clients?
What's up guys Jeff from Sorta Healthy here! Today we'll be talking about becoming friends with personal training clients. Becoming friends with clients is a bit of a taboo subject, but I think it's an area that's worthy of discussion since it's something that most of us trainers will be faced with at some point in our careers. In this video we'll be discussing some of the benefits of befriending clients, and some of the downsides to doing it as well. It's certainly a more controversial topic than what's typical here on Sorta Healthy, but we think these discussions need to happen!
