As a personal trainer, most of your conversations with your clients would either be cues or words of encouragement. The latter is easy: Great! Perfect! Awesome! It’s the cues that are the problem.
Especially if your client is new to the gym, you want to cue, but not overwhelm, and at the same time, give them enough information in a way that they can understand – now that is an art.
This is why body language is important.
If you watch this video, you’ll notice that even though Liam’s the one doing push ups, I’m also physically guiding him through the movements like scapular protraction and retraction.
Action speaks louder than words – cue wisely.
