Q: What’s the best way to motivate a client who’s hit a plateau—no longer losing weight or improving strength or speed?

A One off the best tools a trainer has is the ability to listen. First, reevaluate goals—adjust some initial goals and add new (appropriate) challenges based on current assessments. Try to discover what motivates a particular client most (maybe losing weight, health issues, or improving performance). You’ll also need to uncover any barriers keeping a client from making good food choices or exercising on his or her own time.Consider treating a client who has hit a plateau like a new client to help you view the person and situation with a critical eye and be sure that the plateau is not due to a stale training routine. One thing we often forget: Hitting a plateau means that some uphill progress has been made. So help your client celebrate those accomplishments as you work together to make adjustments.
