First, I like to have a sit down about clients about fitness goals or Professional goals. Give an overview of my curriculum and get an understanding about the timeline we are look at to achieve both short term and long term goals.

I went on vacation a few years back, and decided that while I was in Vacation I'd volunteer at a boxing gym near by. The owner asked me to "audition" by working the Focus Mitts with one of his guys.

I recommend you sit down and have a conversation about the teachers philosophy and teaching style. Not all Teachers/Coaches are adaptable, or educated in avenuse of health and fitness.
