Preparation is key here I believe in training clients outdoors. Check your Insurance boundaries, Risk asses the area well and practice the rules of SEX ie , Safe, Effective, Exercise. Above all make the training FUN !
Bringing clients out of their comfort zone is really important and often they will be suprised how far they have actually progressed in their fitness levels. For some it can highlight weaknesses but they then have a goal to get themselves stronger in that weak area hence an agenda, a reason and will now be in control of their training.
Outdoor training is real, fun, multi functional and covers all areas of your Motor skills ie, Speed, Agility, Power, Co-ordination,, Balance and Reaction time.
